Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, in proportions which can be varied to achieve varying mechanical and electrical properties. It is a substitutional alloy: atoms of the two constituents may replace each other within the same crystal structure

What is Brass?

Brass is one of the most-used materials in the world. The term brass generally applies to alloys of copper where the main alloying ingredient beside copper is zinc. Other alloys of copper where the main alloying ingredient is tin are usually referred to as bronze.

Brass is generally known for several things – decent strength and electrical conductivity, it can be polished easily, and there seems to be a brass for just about every application.

360 Brass (Free Machining Brass)

Free Machining brass is the most commonly used of the brass rod and bar items. The presence of lead in the alloy creates a highly machinable material that can easily be cut and shaped into whatever you need. Grand Brass Lamp Parts, LLC uses 360 Brass for it’s brass turning operations, known for its strength and resistance to corrosion with properties closely resembling that of steel, is one of the most popular copper alloys used today. 360 Brass is also valued for its high polished finish.

What is Brass CNC Turning?

CNC means Computer Numerical Control. This means a computer converts the design produced by Computer Aided Design software (CAD), into numbers. The numbers can be considered to be the coordinates of a graph and they control the movement of the cutter.

Turning Operations

Turning is a form of machining, a material removal process, which is used to create rotational parts by cutting away unwanted material. The turning process requires a turning machine or lathe, work piece, fixture, and cutting tool used to reduce the diameter of the work piece, usually to a specified dimension, and to produce a smooth finish on the metal.

Turning is used to produce rotational, typically axi-symmetric, parts that have many features, such as holes, grooves, threads, tapers, various diameter steps, and even contoured surfaces. Parts that are fabricated completely through turning often include components that are used in limited quantities, perhaps for prototypes, such as custom designed shafts and fasteners. Turning is also commonly used as a secondary process to add or refine features on parts that were manufactured using a different process. Due to the high tolerances and surface finishes that turning can offer, it is ideal for adding precision rotational features to a part whose basic shape has already been formed.
