When you need a precision machined part, the material you choose to use is important. The best choice depends on the material’s quality, cost, and performance requirements. Precision steel is a type of steel used in the manufacturing of high-precision products such as aircraft parts, automotive parts, medical devices, and more. In addition, precision steel fabrication demands great accuracy. Parts that have an irregular thickness or are made with inconsistent tolerances can cause problems for equipment. Precision steel is made up of two different metals – one that is strong and durable, and another that is flexible and lightweight. These two properties allow precision Steel to perform better than traditional steel products.
Other commonly used materials in precision machining include steel, aluminum, graphite, plastic, glass, and composites. A professional machinist can help you determine the right material to reach the tight tolerances. Stainless steel, for example, has high levels of chromium, making it an excellent choice for many applications. Stainless steel parts have high corrosion resistance. Many metal parts are exposed to harsh environments, and corrosion can affect their functionality and safety. There are different metal alloys and when combined with a base metal and other elements, the metal composition changes.
