The Advantages of Using Metal in Manufacture


February 9, 2018 ( Newswire) Metal remains one of the most used materials in manufacture, and you only have to look around you to realize its impact in society. It is a versatile material with multiple uses, and it is widely used for production on an industrial scale.

Metal of different varieties can be obtained from CMSNA Composite Material Machining, and applied to various functions. Many of the tools, products, and services we use take advantage of metal's capabilities, and you might be wondering why?

This article will outline leading benefits of using metal in manufacture, looking at different types, promoting advantages, and suggesting why and how it can be used in different contexts.


One of the most abundant metals in the world, aluminum exists within the earth's crust. Its lightweight nature means it's perfect for crafting accessories like bag tags for pilots, and it has many additional uses due to its malleable nature. This makes it perfect for design work, since it can be customized easily on the theme you're trying to achieve. It is a stylish metal that can be used in multiples contexts, from roofing to retail. It places less strain on buildings, and contributes less environmental impact because it's 100% recyclable. This makes it an eco-friendly material, which is important, considering green initiatives are at the forefront of society. Aluminum is usually alloyed to improve its properties, so is commonly associated with construction, packaging, and transportation. Though it's often modified, the mere fact it exists in the earth's crust suggests it's more beneficial than man made materials.

Carbon Steel

Commonly used in manufacture, carbon steel is cost-effective and is a common metal used across the globe. It usually comprises a small percentage of carbon, and is easily bent and ductile. Carbon steel either has a low, high, or medium carbon content, which is minimal in relation to the steel used. It can be tempered to great hardness, and is consequently durable, and great for protecting other elements. It is generally used for large parts, automotive components, and forging. It's commonly associated with springs and high strength wires, and ultra-high-carbon steel can be found in knives, punches, and axles.


A transition metal, Nickel is hard and corrosion resistant. This is an advantageous property that's a result of its slow rate of oxidation at room temperature. It has a high melting point, and is magnetic at room temperature. Nickel is used to form other alloys, and around 60% of world production forges nickel-steels. Coins, rechargeable batteries, and electric guitar strings all use nickel-steel. Stainless steel often uses a percentage of nickel, and it can be used to create a green tint in glass.


A corrosion resistant material, titanium has one of the highest strength-to-density ratios known to man. As one of the strongest metallic elements, it has a high melting point, and is considered nearly as strong as steel in most cases. It has one advantage over steel being less dense, and it's useful as a refractory metal. Titanium is paramagnetic and has low thermal and electrical conductivity.
