What is Steel Machining
What is steel machining? Steel is a processed material with good malleability, durability, and electrical conductivity.
Because of its excellent characteristics and high cost-effectiveness, steel can meet complex and high-precision processing needs and has become a popular choice for processing in many industries. Applications for steel parts machined from steel include automotive, aerospace, and construction.
Tyeps Of Steel Machining
Due to the advantages of processing steel, it has become a popular choice for parts processing in various industries. Understand CNC machining steel technologies, and it easy to machine steel, and help you choose the appropriate processing method to meet the required processing requirements.
Turning is a CNC steel machining technique that uses cutting tools to remove material from rotating steel machining components to produce cylindrical or conical shapes. Its applications include the production of shafts, bolts, and other similar steel parts.
Milling is a processing technology for cnc machine steel. It uses rotating cutters to remove material from steel parts to create flats, grooves, or grooves. Its applications include flat parts, gears, and similar steel machined parts.
5-axis machining technology is a CNC machine tool that cuts steel parts that require high machining accuracy along five axes of motion. Its applications include automotive steel parts such as brake pedals, chassis, and load-bearing bracket components.
Rapid prototyping is an advanced technology that designs a virtual model of steel processing parts and then uses 3D printing technology to manufacture steel processing parts layer by layer. Its applications include agricultural machinery components such as tines, blades, and mechanical bearings for cultivators and field cultivators.
Laser cutting is a processing technology that uses a CNC machine for steel. It uses a high-powered laser beam to cut machined parts from steel. Applications include gears, brake pads, and engine parts.
EDM machining is a machining technique that uses electrical discharges to remove material from steel machined components. Its applications include turbine blades and fuel injectors.
Advantages Of Steel Machining
Steel has high tensile and compressive strengths, enabling steel machined parts to support greater loads, reducing the amount of steel required in a given application, and saving machining costs
The ability of steel materials to be easily machined using CNC techniques (milling, turning) increases machining efficiency and reduces lead times.
Ductility makes steel machined parts easier to shape, withstand extreme forces or impact loads, and handle complex machining requirements.
Steel machined components are resistant to wear, corrosion, and heat damage, making them durable and long-lasting in their application, reducing the need for frequent replacement and repairs.

Surface Finish Of Steel Machining
Surface finishing custom steel parts after steel machining can improve the wear and corrosion resistance properties of the steel parts and the appearance and function of the steel.
Electroplating is the coating of a metal layer (such as chromium) on the surface of the steel to form protection, which can prevent corrosion and enhance the conductivity of steel parts.
Spray painting is to apply a layer of paint on the surface of steel parts to form a barrier with the external environment, improving the corrosion resistance and durability of steel parts in harsh environments.
Powder coating is the application of dry powder to the surface of steel and then baking in an oven to form a hard, durable coating that prevents corrosion and improves the appearance of the steel.
Anodizing is a surface treatment process that creates a layer of oxide on the surface of a metal (usually aluminum or titanium) through an electrolytic process, which can protect the surface of steel parts and prolong the service life of the steel parts.
Galvanizing is the application of a layer of zinc to the surface of steel components using hot-dip or electroplating processes to provide corrosion protection and impact resistance.
Shot peening is the use of tiny metal beads or projectiles to bombard the surface of the steel, creating small indentations that increase the strength and durability of the steel. Applications of the process include for example, aerospace and automotive parts.
