Strength, conductivity, corrosion
resistance, machinability, and ductility make
copper one of the most versatile materials for
a broad range of applications. With consumption
rising to over 18 million tons per year, copper
has become the material of choice for many manufacturers.
Variations in composition as well as manufacturing
and machining methods contribute to why copper
is well suited in a variety of finished products
and systems. John Prosock Machine, Inc. makes custom
copper components that meet customer needs regardless
of their industry.
As a CNC machine shop in PA with
years of experience, John Prosock Machine, Inc.
utilizes high-quality copper alloys to produce
parts that perform to maximum capability. While
copper is relatively soft and therefore easy to
cut, it can be a challenge to avoid damaging the
material during the machining process. Copper
can be easily bent, dented, or scratched during
CNC precision machining production. At John Prosock
Machine, our machinists know what it takes to
machine a range of copper alloys so product waste
is reduced and downtime is virtually eliminated.
for Copper Precision Machining:
Electrical – Superior
electrical conductivity makes copper a good choice
in electrical equipment. Industries where copper
proves useful as a conductor of electricity includes
automotive, medical equipment such as scalpels,
computer chips, and more.
Engineering – Corrosion
resistance and high thermal conductivity properties
are what compels manufacturers of heat exchange
systems to select copper for their end products.
Valve, pumps, radiators, refrigeration units,
hydraulic tubing, and bolting are a few good examples
of where copper is considered a valuable resource.
Environment – Ductility,
malleability, and corrosion-resistant properties
enable copper to perform well under the most demanding
environmental conditions. Whether in tanks, vessels,
oil platforms, coastal power stations, or in any
piping or plumbing systems, copper continually
maintains its integrity.
Approximately 40% of the annual
18-ton copper consumption can be recycled. Once
the working life of your copper component ends
the material can be reused in the manufacturing
of a new and improved part. John Prosock Machine,
Inc. recycles the leftover swarf (metallic particles)
accumulated during the machining process. We know
how valuable copper is to your application and,
as a result, strive to do our part to make sure
copper is readily available for fabrication.
With John Prosock’s copper
machining you are assured that accurate and tight
tolerance standards are met consistently at a
price you can afford. We make use of the best
copper alloys money can buy for easy machinability
and good surface finish qualities. It is through
the dedication of our machinists and the latest
CNC machines we employ that John Prosock Machine,
Inc. is able to maintain a leading position within
the machining industry and continues to rise above
competing CNC machining companies.
