The Power of CNC Machining

What is CNC Machining?

CNC machining is a manufacturing process that uses computer numeric control (CNC) machines to cut and shape materials. These machines are programmed with a computer, meaning they can create complex shapes and components precisely and accurately. CNC machining is used in various industries, from automotive and aerospace to medical and consumer products.

Benefits of CNC Machining

CNC machining offers several benefits over traditional manufacturing processes. The accuracy and precision of CNC machines can produce superior components in quality and performance while also reducing the time and cost of production. Additionally, CNC machines can produce components in a fraction of the time that traditional manufacturing processes require.

The Latest in CNC Machining Equipment

The latest CNC machining equipment is essential for staying competitive in today’s manufacturing industry. The latest machines are designed to deliver the highest quality components with precision and accuracy while reducing production times and costs. With the right machine, you can streamline your manufacturing operations and unlock the power of CNC machining.

Metro Steel USA uses two tools for our CNC machining, the VTC-300C CNC milling machine and the Quick Turn Nexus 350 CNC lathe.

Mazak VTC-300C

The VTC-300C Vertical Machining Center features a powerful 40-taper spindle, full traveling column design, and fixed table for machining extremely long and heavy workpieces. With a table center partition, the machine work envelope can be transformed into two separate work areas that allow the machine to be in cycle in one work area while a part is being set up in the other. The machine also delivers fast rapid traverse rates to reduce non-cut times.

Mazak Quick Turn 350

The QUICK TURN 350 CNC turning center combines advanced technology, productivity, and value to deliver exceptional performance for large and small shops. With three different bed lengths, this 2-axis machine efficiently processes various types of medium to larger-sized long workpieces.


The DMG M0RI-SEIKI DURAVERTICAL 1035 ECO is a CNC Machining center that has revolutionized the fabrication process. Its state-of-the-art technology ensures high precision and accuracy, making it an essential tool for our fabrication facility. Using a DMG M0RI-SEIKI DURAVERTICAL 1035 ECO ensures that every product Metro Steel USA manufactures is of the highest quality. When it comes to Fabrication, precision matters, and the DMG M0RI-SEIKI DURAVERTICAL 1035 ECO guarantees just that. 


The Ficep drilling line features an exclusive secondary “X” axis with improved accuracy and productivity as it is not necessary to unclamp, reposition and re-clamp for each “X” axis (length axis) movement. This capability also permits scribing on all four surfaces to eliminate all manual layouts which can be automatically imported from such CAD systems as SDS2 or Tekla. The secondary axis also provides the ability to generate slotted holes, copes and large holes that exceed the maximum capability of the Excalibur 12.
