One of the easiest materials to machine, Brass is cost-effective and durable, with a high resistance to heat and corrosion. It is also antimicrobial, rust resistant, malleable and has a low coefficient of friction. Brass machining services create parts with tight seal or locking zone – ideal for fittings. These material characteristics make Brass screw machine parts suitable for Automotive, Electronic and under-water applications.
Screw Machine Specialties manufactures many types of brass machined parts, such as collars, fittings, valve parts and worm gear shafts, in several popular grades such as 360 and 353. While 360 is a free machining alloy that has high machinability and can be precision machined easily, 353 is better suited for forming operations such as knurling and threading.
