Materials & Size

Give Us Your Toughest Materials

Alloys, resins, thermoset plastic and exotic minerals

We understand that your material specifications are critical design elements. Our ability to work with these materials is critical to the success of your part or component. Urban Manufacturing routinely holds tolerances up to 0.0005” and tighter.

Our manufacturing engineers and journeymen machinists have experience working with hard-to-machine materials, and we live to solve challenging manufacturing issues. We machine production-volume components made from materials with machinability ratings of 20% and below.

Consistency is everything. We control material identity throughout the production process using our Innov X-System’s alloy X-ray analyzer.

Materials Declaration: Urban Manufacturing is prepared to provide proper documentation for RoHS, REACH & conflict minerals.


Urban Manufacturing has extensive experience machining these challenging and exotic minerals:  

  • Aluminum, brass, copper
  • Steel, stainless steel, alloy steel
  • Aluminum / Zinc die casts
  • Forgings, impacts, extrusions
  • Lexan® (polycarbonate resin thermoplastic)
  • Ultem® (polyimide thermoplastic resin)
  • Nitronic 60® stainless steel
  • Hasteloy®, Incolloy®
  • ESR Stainless (electro slag remelting)
  • TZM (titanium, zirconium, molybdenum alloy)
  • Kovar® (nickel-cobalt ferrous alloy)
