Materials Expertise

Depending on the manufactured part, different materials are more cost efficient and allow for higher tolerances. The professionals of our MultiSource Manufacturing network of use their expertise to help customers choose the best materials for their project’s specifications. To determine the best materials for your project we examine several factors including:

Where the part is used

The environment in which the part will be used is of utmost importance. Will it be exposed to the elements outside and be susceptible to rusting? Also, how much stress will the part be under? These factors will determine the best material to use for your parts.

Type of strength needed

When it comes to part materials, strength is not cut and dry. Different materials have different strengths, such as tensile strength for pulling or wear resistance to endure high levels of friction. The type of strength a part requires depends on its purpose. We can use our materials expertise to determine which material will be most effective and extend the life of your part.

Manufacturing cost

Stronger materials cost more to machine due to their durability, while specialty materials are expensive to acquire. Once we’ve determined the best materials to fit your project needs, we can evaluate which are most cost effective while still maintaining the desired features.
