304 vs. 316 Stainless Steel for CNC Machining

304 vs. 316 Stainless Steel for CNC Machining

Stainless steel CNC machining is widely used to creat precision stainless steel components because of its corrosion resistance. There are many grades of stainless steel. Their formability, strength and machinability are different. Grade 304 stainless steel, also known as A2 stainless steel, contains 18% to 20% chromium and 8% to 10% nickel, and grade 316 or A4 stainless steel contains about 16% chromium, 10% nickel and 2% to 3% molybdenum. This means that one of the biggest differences between 304…

Why Stainless Steel Is Hard to Machine?

Why Stainless Steel Is Hard to Machine

Stainless steel is one of the main CNC machining materials in our machine shop. Compared with the high quality carbon steel, stainless steel material has added Cr, Ni, N, Nb, Mo and other alloying elements. The increase of these alloying elements not only improves the corrosion resistance of steel, but also has a certain effect on the mechanical properties of stainless steel. For example, martensitic stainless steel has the same carbon content when compared with AISI 1045 mild steel, ,…

6 Types of CNC Machining Materials

Alloy Steel CNC Machining

CNC machining is one of the most common manufacturing methods used to manufacture metal parts. Computer digital control (CNC) uses processes that allow the use of a high degree of automation to manufacture parts and has advantages over many traditional manufacturing methods in terms of speed, productivity and accuracy. Choosing the right materials for CNC machining can be a daunting task, and many factors should be considered when selecting materials for parts, including machinability, price, corrosion resistance, strength, weight and…

CNC Machining vs. 3D Printing

CNC Machining vs 3D Printing

First, 3D printing is an additive technology. CNC machining is a material reduction technology, so there is a big difference in materials. As the professional CNC machining company, let us tell you the main differences in detail. 1. Material 3D printing materials mainly include liquid resin (SLA), nylon powder (SLS), metal powder (SLM), gypsum powder (full color printing), sandstone powder (full color printing), wire (DFM), sheet (LOM) and many others. Liquid resin, nylon powder and metal powder account for the…

Aluminum CNC Machining Services

CNC Machined Aluminium Parts

Aluminum is considered one of the best metals for CNC machining because it is relatively easy to machine. Aluminum possesses all the properties required for machinings, such as light-weight, good strength, and perfect durability. Since aluminum is a light metal and easy to machine, you can use it in various applications.  Similar to stainless steel CNC Machining, Aluminum CNC machining process cuts the raw material bit to bit to achieve desired shape to meet the drawing’s specification. So, it is also a custom process…

Stainless Steel CNC Machining

The versatility of stainless steel is undisputed. It is used in various CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining industries. Many stainless steel items are produced using versatile manufacturing methods in CNC machining. These methods benefit from the precision of computer-controlled milling machines, drills, lathes, and other cutting tools that can produce accurate, repeatable parts efficiently and cost-effectively. The presence of chromium in alloys is why stainless steel is better than regular steel. The chemical composition of all stainless steel contains about…
