Using Brass for CNC Machining
Using brass in CNC machining is often a great choice due to its great durability, low friction coefficient, good malleability, and attractive finish. 3ERP offers a wide range of brass CNC machining services, using the latest technology and state-of-the-art equipment for an unparalleled level of precision and quality. Our expert machinists specialize in creating complex parts, from intricate molds to highly customized components.
Cartridge brass, or Copper 260 as it is sometimes known, is a popular material for CNC machining due to its strength and excellent machinability. It is corrosion-resistant and has superior electrical conductivity, making it ideal for automotive components, electronic hardware, and many other applications. With its impressive strength, high heat resistance, and good machinability, Copper 260 is an excellent choice for precision CNC parts.

Free-Cutting Brass - Copper 360
Free-cutting brass, or Copper 360, offers superior machinability and excellent electrical conductivity. It is an ideal choice for parts that need to be formed and machined with precision. Copper 360 has superior tensile and yield strength, making it suitable for applications that require high load-bearing capacity. Its low coercivity makes it suitable for electrical components such as terminals and connectors, making it an ideal material for the electronics industry. It can also be used for decorative parts and components due to its attractive golden color. Its excellent corrosion resistance makes it a popular choice for outdoor applications.
3ERP’s Copper 360 is the perfect option for customers seeking superior performance and quality in their parts and components.
