Brass Milling

Trace-A-Matic specializes in CNC milling of brass parts and assemblies using state-of-the-art CNC mills, 5-axis machining centers, and high-speed cutting tools. Years of experience provide expert knowledge of cutting metal, brass alloy characteristics, and how the brass material group reacts when machined. Tool selection, cutting pass depths, mill/lathe feed and speed, chip control, and high-pressure coolant are critical in controlling heat generation, which can cause part movement and tool deflection during the machining process. This level of skill ensures world-class precision machining that meets or exceeds the most demanding tolerances. The innovative Trace-A-Matic team is always available to review your machining parts and guide you during the design process. Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction, providing AS 9100/ISO 9001:2015 certified quality brass CNC machining resulting in timely turnaround and on-time delivery.

Brass Milling

Cu3Zn2 Melting Point
1,650 to 1,720 °F

Characteristics:
  • Brass is a combination of copper and zinc metal alloy
  • Easy to machine
  • High corrosion resistance and wear-resistance
  • Excellent electrical and thermal conductivity
  • Alloy 360 brass, also known as free-machining brass, is the most common type of brass

Brass, renowned for its impressive tensile strength and corrosion resistance, boasts an array of grades suited for diverse applications. CNC-machined brass parts benefit from the material's excellent machinability, enabling precise, intricate designs and tight tolerances. Whether high-speed machining of brass for rapid production or intricate machining projects requiring meticulous attention to detail, brass proves versatile. Post-machining, various finishing options, such as powder coating or plating, enhance the appearance and durability of brass parts, catering to a wide range of aesthetic preferences. Custom brass parts, tailored to specific requirements, further exemplify the versatility and adaptability of brass in manufacturing applications. The properties of brass, such as its excellent machinability and corrosion resistance, make it well-suited for precision CNC machining processes.
