Precision Machining with the Highest Quality Materials
Components Made with Titanium, Stainless Steel, Copper, and More
Owens’ facility is perfectly controlled to guarantee high precision results, and we can ensure your component will be made with the highest accuracy and tightest controls. We also use the highest quality materials for EDM machining to ensure your part is sterile and guaranteed not to break.
Owens utilizes a wide range of metal materials to manufacture our high-quality components, including:
- Alloy Steel – an iron and carbon composition with other elements intentionally added, including manganese, chromium, vanadium, nickel, or tungsten. Alloy steels are typically divided into two categories: high alloy and low alloy.
- Aluminum – a high-quality silver metal that’s soft, lightweight and durable. Aluminum is commonly used for 5-axis CNC machining in military and aerospace applications.
- Brass – a metal alloy made of copper and zinc, made with varying proportions to create a range of brasses with varying properties. Brass has decent strength and electrical conductivity when used in machining parts.
- Bronze – an alloy comprised of copper and tin, and it offers a wide range of properties such as high ductility, hardness, thermal conductivity, strength and workability. Bronze is often used to manufacture nuts, bolts, threaded parts, bearings, bushings, screws, and more.
- Carbon Steel – a metal alloy of carbon and steel, but could also contain nickel, copper, or manganese. Carbon steel is commonly used for axles, gears, shafts, rails, pipelines, couplings, and more.
- Copper – a common metal used in manufacturing electrical equipment such as wiring and motors. Copper requires specialized processes for manufacturing, meaning copper alloys are more common in machining components.
- Hardened Steel – a medium or high carbon steel that has been given heat treatment to temper it, or increase the toughness of the steel. How hard the steel becomes depends on the amount of carbon present in the metal, and it’s typically used to make power shovels, nozzles, surgical instruments, and other manufactured parts.
- Hastelloy – a strong nickel-chromium-iron-molybdenum alloy resistant to corrosion. Hastelloy steel is often used to manufacture contour rings, rings, hubs, flanges, shafts, and other manufactured products.
- Inconel – an alloy containing oxidation-corrosion-resistant materials well suited for service in extreme environments. Inconel is often used in gas turbine blades, seals, combustors, rotors, and other motor shafts.
- Invar – an alloy of iron and nickel often used in manufacturing office appliances. Invar has the lowest thermal expansion among all metals and alloys in the range from room temperature up to approximately 230°C.
- Kovar – a nickel-cobalt ferrous alloy with thermal expansion characteristics. Kovar is often used to manufacture electronic devices such as light bulbs, vacuum tubes, and cathode-ray tubes.
- Stainless Steel – a popular industrial alloy used in a wide variety of industries. Stainless steel is used to manufacture handles, medical devices, lab instruments, automotive parts, weld ferrules, and more
- Titanium – an element alloyed with iron, aluminum, vanadium, and molybdenum. Titanium has high tensile strength, and is often used in industries such as aerospace, marine, aircraft, and more.
- Tungsten – an alloy with a high melting point and is often used in aerospace applications. Tungsten has excellent resistance to sticking or welding, and outstanding resistance to metal transfer and electrical erosion.
