CHASE BRASS ENGINEERED PARTS ADD VALUE TO YOUR COMPONENT SOURCING

Chase Brass is leading the way in the supply of forged brass components utilizing Brass in their Engineered Parts product line. Our economic and flexible forging capability allows for additional material savings by coring in 1 to 3 axes. This manufacturing capability is backed by Chase quality rod and 100% USA made. These capabilities provide fabricators and finishers for higher efficiencies in final machining. A key objective is to supply brass shapes using a process that conforms to the parts specifications needed to minimize waste, reduce material investment and eliminate flash. Sourcing forged parts allows for significant reductions in manufacturing costs as outlined in the

MADE IN AMERICA, PROTECTING AMERICANS – LEAD-FREE FOR ALL DRINKING WATER

Brass Re-engineered With the introduction of the Safe Drinking Water Act in 2011 the water distribution systems of our country have gone through significant transformation. This has been the change that finds us providing our new ECO BRASS®/ECO BRONZE® lead-free product lines. Complying with the critical need to remove all drinking water from lead exposure. As explained by Larry Muller, our Director of Metallurgy and Technical Services, “ECO BRASS/ECO BRONZE is Not Your Father’s Silicon Brass.” To paraphrase that classic Oldsmobile advertisement from a couple of decades ago, ECO BRASS®/ECO BRONZE® is not your father’s silicon brass. It’s an engineered silicon

PUSHING PRODUCTIVITY TO THE LIMIT: HIGH SPEED MACHINING OF BRASSES

Inspired by a new focus on using brass products and advancements in high speed machining and tooling, the Copper Development Association conducted third party machinability testing on both leaded and lead-free brasses using single point turning and drilling operations. What was found was fantastic! Anyone processing brass has an opportunity to decrease cycle times by as much as 94%. Who would have guessed that despite the reputation of brass’ machinability, of its capability has been underutilized, thus inflating the cost per part and decreasing potential profitability. The CDA study was performed on 5 brass alloys machined at different speeds and feeds
