Milling steel with a desktop CNC
Milling steel with a desktop CNC machine. Is that possible?
Yes, with our robust desktop CNC machines it is not only possible, but we have customers running businesses doing so.
One example is Fritz Metall-Art in Germany. They have made most of the images in the picture gallery on this page.
We generally recommend the Turbo series for milling metals. And our milling kit plus a spray mist cooling unit should also be used. The milling kit is an extra guide rail above the standard gantry and it ensures stability when milling very hard materials.
There are other machines that will cut steel faster. But then you are looking at a different price point entirely.
With hard materials like steel and stainless steel it is very important to use the correct cutting tools. So choose the tools with care.
If you are doing a little more heavy duty milling of steel, we recommend you take a look at the T-Rex steel frame CNC as well.
