Metal Alloys Offered

CNC metals can be used for a range of parts from prototypes to engineering models to production components. Some of the following materials are extremely durable and can withstand extremely harsh environments with temperatures up to 1668 °C, like titanium. Other metals are general-use materials that are highly machinable and therefore suitable for testing designs at a low cost, like aluminum. Depending on the nature of your project, machined metal alloys may the best material for your custom parts considering useful metal properties like high corrosion resistance, high heat deflection, and high impact resistance.
