The Benefits of Brass

Brass’s unique properties make it one of the most widely used metal alloys. Its versatility allows it to perform well nearly every industry and its beautiful coloring – which can range from light gold and silver to almost red – makes it a popular choice for decorative applications. Our precision services save you time, reduce waste, and keep your costs low. You get the material you need delivered to your door in the exact size you need.

  1. Durabilitycustom brass manufacturers – Brass is an extremely durable material with good mechanical properties and wear resistance, along with high heat resistance. Brass has a melting point of over 900°F, making it an excellent choice for high heat environments.
  2. Corrosion resistance – Because brass does not contain iron, it won’t rust like other metals. This increases the lifespan of parts and cuts back on maintenance costs.
  3. Low coefficient of friction – With a very low coefficient of friction, brass is an ideal material for gears, bearings and seals. Brass parts are capable of tight seals and smooth, high-speed operation.
  4. Excellent machinability – Because brass has good malleability, ductility, and dimensional stability, it can be machined into tight tolerance parts in a variety of shapes and sizes.
  5. High-speed machining – Brass is one of the easiest metals to machine thanks to its high tensile strength and shear resistance. By choosing brass, your parts can be produced quickly, leading to faster delivery and lower part costs.

Brass CNC Machining

Brass is one of the most commonly used materials in the world due to its excellent machinability and wide range of uses. Brass is formed by adding zinc to copper, with the exact amount of zinc dependent on the grade. (The higher the level of zinc, the more strength and ductility the brass has.) At Reading Plastic & Metal, our brass CNC machining services can create precision brass parts for a variety of applications and industries.
