The Top 5 Popular Materials for CNC Machining

Benefit from the CNC machining, most of the plastic and metals can be machined as per your design and geometry by CNC method. At TEAM Rapid, we use advanced equipments such as CNC milling, CNC turning, CNC grinding, EDM and wire EDM to offer high-quality CNC prototypes to our clients. Here we gather the top 5 popular materials that chosen by most of our customer for their CNC prototypes.

Aluminum Alloy (including Al 2024, Al 6061-T6, Al 6063, Al 7075), Al 6061-T6 is the most common being used aluminum alloy for CNC prototyping.

Stainless Steel (including 303, 304 and 17-4H), type 303 is a non-magnetic austenitic stainless steel without hardenable by heat treatment, it has a good resistance to oxidation and it is popular chosen by our clients.

ABS, ABS is a low cost engineering plastic that is easy to machine and idea to be structure applications when impact resistance, strength, and stiffness are required. Since it has excellent performances and stable dimensions, ABS is widely used as plastic CNC Prototyping China material and low volume production material.

PMMA, PMMA also called Acrylic, it is used in many optical or transparent applications such as car lens, water tanks.

Brass, it can be used as valves in the gas or water relative industries, it is one of the top 5 popular materials for CNC machining.

These are our top 5 popular materials for CNC machining in the past 3 months. The ranking may change from time to time as more possibilities of new material been discovered. We can keep our reader information about the latest popular CNC prototyping material in the following articles.
