Brass is the heritage material in the world of fashion accessories and is still commonly used. As stainless steel and aluminium, it is worked through both cold and hot techniques, and the combination of the two.
Among cold techniques we use mainly cutting/ bending of metal sheet and wire as well as turn/ mill CNC machining. The former is suitable for high volume production of articles such as snap buttons, jeans buttons and various types of hooks and closures. The latter is instead divided in two main categories : turning and milling. Turning is suited for producing mostly round shapes in any volume. Milling instead is highly flexible but less productive and is thus applied in small lot production or in precious articles for leather goods or jewellery.
Among hot machining techniques we use mainly lost wax casting and forging. Lost wax casting is mainly used for small lot productions with very creative geometrical shapes. Forging is instead particularly well suited for producing classic shaped products such as buckles and leather goods trimmings in medium to high numbers.
