Steel CNC Machining

Trace-A-Matic specializes in machining steel parts and assemblies using state-of-the-art computer numerical controlled CNC milling and turning, 5-axis centers, and high-speed cutting tools. Years of experience provide expert knowledge of cutting a wide variety of steel alloys, their characteristics, and how this material group reacts when machined. Tool selection, cutting pass depths, mill/lathe feed and speed, chip control, and high-pressure coolant are critical in controlling heat generation, which can cause part movement and tool deflection during the machining process. This level of skill ensures world-class precision steel machining that meets or exceeds the most demanding tolerances. The innovative Trace-A-Matic team is always available to review and guide you during the design and manufacturing process. Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction, providing AS 9100/ISO 9001:2015 certified quality machining resulting in timely turnaround and on-time delivery.

Steel CNC Machining
Steel Types and Characteristics:
  • Carbon steel contains carbon and iron, used in a variety of applications - mild steel having the least amount of carbon
  • Alloy includes nickel, copper, chromium, or aluminum, altering the strength and corrosion resistance
  • Stainless contain chromium and is known for corrosion resistance - 304 and 316 being the most common
  • Tool steel contains tungsten, molybdenum, cobalt, and vanadium, used in cutting and drilling equipment

Trace-A-Matic is highly skilled at machining high-quality steel parts and heat-treated assemblies. The proper machining tool design and tool material, helix angle, feed rate, radial engagement, chip evacuation, and cutting force are essential to machine stainless steel, reducing heat and tool deflection. Resulting in precision machined parts to the desired surface finish.
