Brass is a very popular material for machined parts and components. There are many reasons for this. The first is aesthetic, brass accessories and accents are very trendy at the moment. Therefore, when the components are visible, the use of brass turned parts adds style. Brass turned parts also have a number of practical advantages. This material is highly resistant to water and corrosion, so it can be used outdoors or in harsher conditions. It is a slightly softer material than steel, which means it is more flexible and will bend rather than break under pressure or impact. Brass is therefore durable. So choose brass turned parts if you want your parts to be less prone to cracking or breaking. Brass is also cheaper than other components that have similar properties. It is easy to source and with a few tweaks, you can get any desired property to suit most conditions. The ease of machining makes it very cost effective.
