Types of metals for CNC machining
CNC machining is a complex process of controlling computer numerical control machines to shape and cut pieces of metal. Different types of metals can be used depending on the project requirements, level of precision, and budget. Generally, aluminum, mild steel, stainless steel, and brass are some of the most commonly used metals in CNC machining.
Aluminum is a popular material for machining metal parts due to its low weight, high strength-to-weight ratio, and corrosion resistance. And aluminum is easy to shape, making it ideal for intricate parts that require precision.
Stainless steel is an incredibly durable and versatile metal alloy suitable for machining various parts. It is highly corrosion-resistant, making it ideal for parts that may come into contact with water or other liquids.
Additionally, it has excellent strength and rigidity, allowing for the precision of machining intricate shapes and components. We can machine stainess steel parts.
Common stainless steel has 303, 304, and 316.
Steel alloy is an ideal material for machining metal parts. It has a high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent corrosion resistance, and good thermal and electrical conductivity.
They can be welded, forged, cast, or molded with minimal difficulty. Additionally, they are available in various grades and sizes depending on the application needed.
Common steel alloy has 4140, 4340.
Carbon steel has excellent machinability properties that make it easy to work in various processes such as drilling, cutting, milling, and grinding.
The material’s high hardness makes it resistant to wear and tear while providing superior fatigue strength.
Brass is a metal alloy that is comprised of copper and zinc. It’s known for its malleability and strength, making it an ideal choice for creating metal parts.
Its corrosion resistance makes it especially suitable for use in outdoor settings or areas exposed to moisture since it won’t corrode or rust like other metals.
It’s also highly conductive of electricity, heat, and sound, making it useful in various applications. We provide brass machining services.
Copper has excellent thermal and electrical conductivity, making it great for electrical components, heat sinks, and other thermally-sensitive materials.
Furthermore, copper is easy to work with and can easily form into various shapes. This makes it a great choice for intricate designs and larger components that need to fit together precisely. We provide copper machining services.
Common copper has copper C110 and C101.
Bronze also has high corrosion resistance and is often used in marine environments, which can last for years without rusting.
Its malleability makes it easy to work with, allowing craftsmen to create intricate designs.
Its durability makes it ideal for architectural applications such as columns or door frames.
We provide bronze machining services.
Titanium is a strong, lightweight metal with many features that make it an ideal choice for many applications.
It is resistant to corrosion and oxidation, making it a good choice for highly corrosive environments.
Common titanium grades have grade 1, grade 2, and grade 5.
We provide titanium machining services.
CNC Machining Capabilities For Custom metal Parts
At our aluminum CNC machining services center, we have the expertise and equipment to create high-quality custom aluminum parts quickly and easily. With our precision manufacturing capabilities, we can produce parts with tight tolerances and excellent strength properties. We have CNC mills and lathes that can handle various cutting and machining operations, so you can be sure that your parts will meet your exact specifications.
CNC milling provides a higher degree of accuracy when creating complex shapes. It is possible to achieve dimensional tolerances as tight as 0.001mm. We will use 3-,4-, and 5-axis machine parts.
With CNC turning, it can manipulate the material into its desired shape using cutting tools with great accuracy and consistency. Depending on the material’s thickness or the design’s complexity, we use different-sized tools.
Wire EDM erodes extremely hard metals, allowing for delicate and intricate designs to be etched into the material. It does not distort or warp the workpiece, so it is ideal for precision applications such as aerospace components, medical device parts, and injection molds.
When producing metal parts, surface finishes are one of the most important considerations. A great finish can make all the difference in a part’s longevity, strength, and safety.
- Bead Blasting
- PTFE-impregnated hard coat anodize
- Zinc plating
- Nickel plating
- Powder coat
- Electroless nickel plating

CNC metal machining FAQs
Engineered metal components are essential to many industries and products, ranging from aerospace and defense to consumer goods.
Machining is the process used to create these parts by removing material from raw stock.
Here are several steps that go into machining metal parts:
First, a design must be created for the part. This can either be done with a computer-aided design (CAD) program or by hand with sketches or drawings.
Once the design is finalized, it needs to be translated into instructions for machining equipment such as CNC mills and lathes.
These machines use cutting tools like drills, end mills, reamers, taps, and dies to shape the metal according to the set parameters.
The machine operator then loads up the raw stock material in an appropriate jig or fixture to be accurately machined.
When CNC machining materials, there are a few key elements to consider.
The first is the type of material that will be used.
Different metals have different properties; for example, some may be harder than others or have higher melting points. It’s important to use the right kind of metal for the job to get the desired results and avoid any potential risks or unexpected issues down the line.
The second factor is tool selection.
For example, if you’re cutting aluminum, you’ll need a special cutting tool to do so.
Different tools can also offer more precise and accurate results when machining certain materials, so choosing the right one is important.
Additionally, you should also consider how well-lubricated your tools are and ensure they’re properly sharpened before use for best performance.
The most common CNC machine tools used for machining metal are lathes, milling machines, drill presses, and EDM (electrical discharge machining) systems.
Lathes use a rotating workpiece, while cutting tools remove material to create an exact shape.
Milling machines also use cutting tools, but unlike lathes, they move the tool across the workpiece rather than rotating it.
In conclusion, CNC machines have revolutionized the manufacturing industry by allowing for precision, speed, and accuracy with various materials.
From plastics to aluminum to steel and beyond, CNC machines can create intricate parts out of metals.
The cost of metal CNC machining depends on several factors, including the material used, the design’s complexity, and the part’s size.
For example, machining aluminum or plastic may cost less than steel or titanium due to their respective properties.
The complexity of the design also affects the price; a more intricate part will require additional time to machine with greater detail which will result in higher costs.
