Brass Screw Machining Services

Precision manufacturing starts with the right material. Brass is one of the most common metals used at Ashley Ward, so we’re well-versed in the process of machining brass products. Commonly used for fittings in the hydraulic and plumbing sectors, companies ask for brass because of its machinability and corrosion resistance. 

Our Brass Screw Machining Process

As a leading manufacturer in the screw machine industry, we utilize 78 multi-spindle machines to manufacture everything from plumbing parts to automotive accessories. Our spindle machines make quick work of machined brass parts, creating the precise thread patterns needed to accommodate generic or specialized nuts and other assembly requirements.

If you’re not sure whether brass is the right option for your screw machining process, review the specifications of brass to determine if it meets your requirements for durability, corrosion resistance, heat capabilities, and machinability. Here are some common grades of brass to consider for your product:

  • Commercial bronze (C220)
  • Red brass (C230)
  • Free machining brass (C360)
  • Naval brass (C464)


Advantages of Using Brass for Custom Machining


Brass screw machined products are used throughout many industries thanks to the unique characteristics of the dynamic material. Here are a few leading reasons why it’s the most popular metal used in our machining process:


  • Durability: While not as hard as titanium or other hard metals, brass holds up reasonably well and is stronger than copper or aluminum.
  • Machinability: Brass is one of the most easily machined metals, due in part to the lead and other soft metals that are used to make most brass grades.
  • Versatile finishing options: You don’t need to finish the surface to use a newly machined brass component, but there are options available to tailor the versatile material to your application.
  • Corrosion resistance: Brass enjoys a high level of corrosion resistance compared to many other alloys, particularly saltwater corrosion.
  • Tight tolerances: A key component of brass’ excellent machinability is its tight tolerances, ensuring an accurate and close fit.
