CNC Machining Materials



At Star Rapid, we can manufacture your CNC machined prototypes and parts out of almost any material that can be purchased on the open market. If you submit a special request, we can use a specific material that you provide. In the table below you will find high-quality materials that we commonly use in our facilities.


We also machine metals using heat-shrink cutter holders for our high-speed spindles to ensure cutting accuracy. We can get almost any metal material that you desire. Common metals used when CNC machining at our facilities are listed in the below table. We will always advise our customers on the machinability of any material requested.

Also, you can check out, an online searchable materials property database, for very specific information regarding materials. Download the below materials list here.
