Machining Brass Enables Fast Run Times
PMTS 2019: The Copper Development Association claims that high-speed machining with brass increases profitability, efficiency and throughput.
The Copper Development Association claims that high-speed machining with brass increases profitability, efficiency and throughput. According to the company, many shops unknowingly underutilize the machinability of brass by as much as 85 percent, which presents missed opportunities to reduce machining time. With the right equipment and know-how, shops are said to be able to run brass at speeds from 5x to 20x faster than recommended handbook values. Machinability testing data and industrial case studies from the company are said to demonstrate how advancements in machine tool technology, coupled with the underutilized high-speed machining capabilities of brass, offer opportunities for shops to become more competitive, efficient and profitable.
