Brass Machining

Trace-A-Matic specializes in brass CNC machining of parts and assemblies using cutting-edge turning, milling, 5-axis centers, and high-speed cutting tools. Years of experience provide expert knowledge of cutting a wide range of brass materials, their characteristics, and how this 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 and guide you during the design and manufacturing 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 Machining

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

  • 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

CNC machines excel in producing precise brass components and parts, mainly when using free-cutting brass, a material celebrated for its high machinability. Among the most accessible materials to machine, the properties of brass are conducive to efficient fabrication, making it a preferred choice for various components. The malleability and excellent machining characteristics of brass ensure intricate designs. After machining, a wide array of surface finishing options, from polishing to plating, enhance the aesthetic appeal and functionality of brass parts. Different brass grades and brass alloys are tailored for CNC machining to accommodate specific requirements, with variations in properties such as corrosion resistance and conductivity. CNC machined brass parts showcase the alloy’s versatility and durability, highlighting its suitability for diverse applications. CNC machining allows for the creation of custom brass parts tailored to unique specifications, making it an ideal choice for any CNC machining project.
