Combining our industry expertise with our precision copper machining services, we fabricate complex copper parts for a wide range of applications and industries, including electronics, medical, military, and automotive. We have experience working with various copper alloys and can recommend a specific one that will best meet your part requirements. We offer a wide range of state-of-art machining and secondary processes, including CNC, Swiss, multi-spindle, Davenport, and Hydromat, that offer advantages such as higher machining speed, close dimensional and form tolerances, improved surface finish, reduced material waste, and longer tool life. We can quickly produce precision machined copper parts and components that meet strict requirements and specifications with fast cycle times and a high level of accuracy and repeatability.
WHAT IS COPPER?
Cooper and copper alloys offer a combination of excellent electrical and thermal conductivity and high corrosion resistance that is easy to machine. This offers significant advantages for the production of parts for electrical applications, in which electrical conductivity is essential. Cooper is a soft, malleable, and ductile metal that often needs to be strengthen for industrial applications. For example, adding beryllium to copper strengthens the alloy so that it is on par with many high-grade steel alloys. Copper is a low-cost material that is easy to shape and then heat-treated to the desired hardness to improve the durability of machined copper parts. Finally, copper offers ease of joining by a wide variety of methods, including brazing, soldering, bolding, or adhesives.
E.J. Basler offers precision machined copper parts and components with superior surface finish, tight tolerances, and long tool life.
The following are some of the physical and mechanical properties that makes copper and copper alloys a commonly used material for machined parts and products.
- Superior electrical conductivity for excellent conduction of both electricity and heat
- Ductile and malleable material that is easy to shape and form
- Naturally resistant to corrosion and rust
- Higher feed speeds increase productivity and profitability
- Certain copper alloys, for example, copper beryllium, have comparable strengths to steel alloys
- Non-magnetic and non-sparking material that offers high levels of heat transfer
- Highly polished surface with a bright, reddish brown color for added cosmetic and aesthetic appeal
- Completely recyclable for highly sustainable machining
