Brass Turning

Trace-A-Matic specializes in turning brass parts and assemblies using state-of-the-art CNC lathes, 5-axis machining centers, and high-speed cutting tools. Years of experience provide expert knowledge of cutting a wide range of brass alloys, their characteristics, and how this material group reacts when machined. Tool selection, cutting pass depths, 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 machining resulting in timely turnaround and on-time delivery.

Brass Turning

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

Trace-A-Matic is highly skilled at brass CNC machining and its alloys. The proper production processes, machining tool design and tool material, rake tool angle, feed rate, chip evacuation, and cutting force are essential to reduce heat and tool deflection. Resulting in precision machined parts to the desired surface finish.

Material Types: castings, forgings, fabricated weldments, and bar stock

Other Metal Turning: aluminum, brass, copper, stainless steel, steel, and titanium
