CNC machining is renowned for its versatility, capable of working with a wide array of materials to produce high-precision parts and components. At SchGo Engineered Products, we utilize advanced CNC technology to machine various materials, each suited for specific applications across diverse industries.


Metals are commonly used in CNC machining due to their strength, durability, and versatility. Aluminum is lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and has excellent machinability, making it ideal for aerospace and automotive components such as aircraft parts, automotive frames, and engine parts. Steel, known for its high strength and wear resistance, is used in manufacturing tools, machinery parts, and structural components. Stainless steel, in particular, is favored for medical instruments, food processing equipment, and marine applications due to its corrosion resistance. Titanium, with its high strength, low density, and excellent corrosion resistance, is predominantly used in aerospace and medical devices, including implants and prosthetics. Brass, which offers good corrosion resistance and excellent machinability, is commonly used for plumbing fittings, musical instruments, and decorative hardware.


Plastics are favored for their flexibility, durability, and ease of machining. ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is known for its high impact resistance and toughness, making it suitable for automotive components, consumer electronics, and protective gear. Nylon is highly valued for its strength, flexibility, and wear resistance, commonly used in producing gears, bearings, and automotive parts. Polycarbonate offers high impact resistance, transparency, and heat resistance, making it ideal for safety glasses, medical devices, and electronic housings.


Composites combine materials to enhance their properties, making them highly effective in various applications. Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) boasts a high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent stiffness, and low thermal expansion, making it a preferred material in aerospace, automotive, and sports equipment such as aircraft components, car parts, and high-performance sporting goods. Fiberglass, with its good strength, lightweight, and corrosion resistance, is commonly used in the construction, automotive, and marine industries for products like boat hulls, automotive body panels, and building materials.


Wood remains a valuable material in CNC machining, particularly in construction and furniture manufacturing. Hardwoods like oak and maple are prized for their durability, aesthetic appeal, and strength, often used in furniture manufacturing, cabinetry, and flooring. Softwoods such as pine and cedar are easy to machine, lightweight, and relatively inexpensive, making them suitable for construction, interior paneling, and decorative items.


Ceramics, known for their hardness and thermal stability, are used in high-precision applications. Alumina (Aluminum Oxide) offers high hardness, wear resistance, and thermal stability, making it suitable for electronic substrates, cutting tools, and medical implants due to its electrical insulation properties and biocompatibility.
