Raw Materials for Machining

 Choosing the right materials is the key to a successful project. Materials have a profound influence on a product’s performance, appearance, and cost. CNC machines are capable of cutting a wide range of materials at very high speeds and feeds without sacrificing any quality due to the advancement of cutting tools.


  Materials with high machinability can be machined at higher speeds and feeds, CNC machine shops prefer materials with high machinability because they are easier to machine, require less tooling, and takes less time to finish.

There are a large number of machine shops unwilling to take on projects with low-machinability materials.  GTA CNC machine  Shop, Toronto, with its 30+ years of experience is capable of handling the majority of CNC machining projects. It is easier to find multiple CNC machine shops that work with high-machinability materials to make custom CNC parts.

Having a CNC project with high machinability material gives the ability to follow close tolerances with ease. The CNC Machining cost varies according to the machinability, for example, a low material removal rate will lead to higher CNC Machining costs because excess time is required to create the custom precision part. Need a machining quote?

Tensile Strength

Tensile strength is a material’s ability to resist tension caused by mechanical force. Tensile strength indicates a material’s ability to resist loads and stresses until it breaks.

In order to measure tensile strength, specimens are held on opposite ends and pulled with a monitoring force until they fail. The higher the tensile strength, the stronger the part. It is necessary to thread the ends or shoulders of the specimen used for testing so that it can be held whilst being tested. With similar specimens it is possible to determine yield strength.

Yield Strength

  Yield strength is the maximum force that can be applied before visible signs of plastic deformation appear. In general, stronger material will have a lower CNC machineability, thus costing more to produce custom parts.


  Metals’ weldability is measured by how easily they can be welded. Composition and grain size determine the weldability of a metal. A weld is formed by melting the ends of two pieces of metal and inserting a filler material.

An electric arc is used to weld two metal pieces together. During the melting process, an electric current drives the arc, which heats up the metal to a point where it melts. A welded joint can be stronger than either piece of metal alone when the molten metal cools and solidifies. Due to the high temperatures involved, the process can be challenging and dangerous.

It is necessary for a material to possess certain properties in order to weld. Its melting point, its resistance to high temperatures, and its ability to be joined with other materials are just a few of these characteristics. Before choosing metal for your project confirm the weldability. Low carbon steels are easier to weld, Medium carbon steels need preheat to avoid the weld cracking. Some of the machine shops do not weld Aluminum or Titanium alloys.  Contact us for Titanium fabrication services

Metal Weight

 Ensure that the metal you are using for your project is the appropriate weight before moving forward. There is a significant weight difference between steel and aluminum. when high strength is needed than steel is the most suitable choice, but for light weight parts and high corrosion resistance, Anodized aluminum material may be better choice. Aluminum anodizing can be done easily to achieve the desired color for appearance or rust prevention.

stainless steel machining parts

Stainless Steel

Grade 303 is the most readily machineable of all the austenitic grades of stainless steel. The machineable nature of grade 303 is due to the presence of Sulphur in the steel composition. Whilst the Sulphur improves machining, it also causes a decrease in the corrosion resistance and a slight lowering of the toughness. The corrosion resistance of type 303 is lower than that for 304. The toughness is still excellent as with other austenitic grades.Grade 303 is used in applications that require parts to be heavily machined. These applications include: Nuts and bolts, Screws, Gears, Aircraft fittings, Bushings,Shafts ​


​Grade 316 is the standard molybdenum-bearing grade, second in importance to 304 amongst the austenitic stainless steels. The molybdenum gives 316 better overall corrosion resistant properties than Grade 304, particularly higher resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments. It has excellent forming and welding characteristics. It is readily brake or roll formed into a variety of parts for applications in the industrial, architectural, and transportation fields. Grade 316 also has outstanding welding characteristics. Post-weld annealing is not required when welding thin sections.


​Type 420 is a martensitic stainless steel that provides good corrosion resistance similar to 410 plus increased strength and hardness. It is magnetic in both the annealed and hardened conditions. Maximum corrosion resistance is attained only in the fully hardened condition. It is never used in the annealed condition. ​17-4PH
