Materials for CNC Machining Parts
CNC machining have a long list of available materials for CNC prototypes and manufacturing parts, from hard metals like stainless steel and titanium, to soft metals such as aluminum, copper, brass, all the way to plastics including ABS, PC, PA, etc.
Aluminum is a highly ductile metal, making it easy to machine. The material has a good strength-to-weight ratio and is available in many types for a range of applications.
Copper displays excellent thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity and plasticity. It is also highly ductile, corrosion resistant and can be easily welded.
Brass has desirable properties for a number of applications. It is low friction, has excellent electrical conductivity and has a golden (brass) appearance.
Stainless steel is the low carbon steel that offers many properties that are sought after for industrial applications. Stainless steel typically contains a minimum of 10% chromium by weight.
Titanium has a number of material properties that make it the ideal metal for demanding applications. These properties include excellent resistance to corrosion, chemicals and extreme temperatures. The metal also has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio.
Plastics are also very popular option for CNC machining because of its wide choices, relatively lower price, and significantly faster machining time needed. We provide all common plastics for CNC machining services.
CNC Machining Surface Finishes
Apart from custom CNC milling and turning services, we also provide complete surface finishing options for precision machined parts.
CNC Machining Tolerance
Our standard tolerances for CNC machining of metals is DIN-2768-1-fine and for plastics is DIN-2768-1-medium. Tolerances are greatly affected by part geometry and type of material. For case-by-case studies, please contact us with email for details.

What is CNC Machining
About the CNC Process
CNC, or computer numerical control machining, is a subtractive manufacturing method that leverages a combination of computerized controls and machine tools to remove layers from a solid block of material. The desired cuts in the metal are programmed according to corresponding tools and machinery, which perform the machining task in an automated fashion.
How large of a part or panel can be CNC machined?
The maximum size sheet metal parts we are able to mill in a single setup is 4' x 8'. The maximum size bar stock that we are able to mill in a single setup is 26" x 16" x 12".
What is the smallest part or panel that can be CNC machined?
The minimum sheet metal part that can be vacuum-chucked without clamps is 5" x 5". Vices can be used for smaller parts. Please email email@example.com for more details.
What kind of a finish does CNC machining leave?
Due to the spinning motion produced by the CNC milling machine's cutter, the surface finish of CNC machined parts will have visible toolmarks. If you require a smooth, unblemished finish to your part, we recommend choosing a secondary finish: grained finish (can only be applied to the outside of machined enclosures due to geometry) or powdercoat.
Why was my CNC order quoted thicker than I intended?
The material used to CNC machine your design will always have a standard thickness tolerance, so it is part of our standard procedure to quote your design with some extra thickness.
