Copper Machined Parts


Copper Machining

copper machined partIt takes an uncommon amount of knowledge and experience to develop a thoroughly reliable supply chain for copper components. That's why leading manufacturers turn to Cox Manufacturing for copper machining that delivers both needed quantities and essential quality without fail.


Copper Machining Advantages

As the premier copper machining suppliers, Cox Manufacturing knows the many benefits behind copper machined parts. Copper is known for being the best electrical conductor while having a relatively low cost! Cox professionals find that copper CNC machining is a smooth, easy process because copper is a good heat conductor that is easy to shape. Copper also has high corrosion resistance properties to rust making copper machined parts popular for electrical applications.

Applications for Machined Copper Parts

Cox Manufacturing recommends several applications for copper parts and components. Machined copper parts are suitable for engineering applications because of its corrosion resistant and thermal conductivity properties! Some engineering applications for machined copper parts include: valves, hydraulic tubing, radiators, and much more. Also, copper machining is suitable for electrical applications because of copper's electrical conductivity property. Machining copper for electrical applications is used mostly in the automotive industry for radiators, cooling systems, and even heat exchangers. Furthermore, there are also environmental applications that require copper machining products including coastal power systems and plumbing systems!

Copper Machining Characteristics

Tellurium Copper - TeCu & CA 145 Alloys
  • Tolerances for a 1/2" Dia. Bar +/-.001
  • Material Cost Factor 5.4
  • Machining Cost Factor 0.7

Copper alloys, TeCu & CA 145, have excellent electrical conductivity and are often machined for electrical contacts.

Beryllium Copper - BeCu Alloy 25
  • Tolerances for a 1/2" Dia. Bar +/-.002
    (Can be ordered to +/-.0002 )
  • Material Cost Factor 30.0
  • Machining Cost Factor 0.75

Copper BeCu Alloy 25 has higher strength and possess excellent electrical conductivity. It is often machined for electrical contacts.

Copper Machining Services

In addition to on-time delivery assurance, Cox professionals can recommend the specific copper alloy that will machine most cost-effectively for your project. They have a thorough understanding of copper chip forming characteristics that impact machining speed and component quality. The Cox metal experts are also adept at acquiring materials, leveraging sources that keep materials costs in check.

Added savings come from the wide array of Cox equipment options (including Swiss machining, multi-spindle machining and CNC turning) that perform multiple operations for lower component costs and improved turnaround time.
