Metal cutting machines are machine tools used to fabricate parts by the removal of material, typically metal.
Metal Cutting Machines Categories

Abrasive Jet and Waterjet Cutting Machines (111 suppliers)

Abrasive jet and waterjet cutting machines are used to cut sheet materials or remove materials from a surface by generating a focused stream of fluid mixed with abrasive particles.

Boring Machines (194 suppliers)

Boring machines cut the inside of a bore to enlarge its diameter.

Broaching Machines (46 suppliers)

Broaching machines are used in a metal-removal process, broaching, that is similar to planing. They have rows of cutting teeth along a cutting axis.

CNC Routers (221 suppliers)

CNC routers are computer-controlled machines that are capable of cutting complex two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) shapes with router bits that spin at high speeds.

Die Cutters and Die Cutting Machines (156 suppliers)

Die cutters and die cutting machines convert web or sheet materials into shapes. They are used to process woven cloth, non-woven textiles, and rubber sheets.

Drilling and Tapping Machines (510 suppliers)

Drilling machines and tapping machines are used to drill or thread holes in a surface.

Electrical Discharge Machines (EDM) (154 suppliers)

Electrical discharge machines (EDM) remove metal from a workpiece by using a series of electric sparks to erode material.

Gear Manufacturing Machines (62 suppliers)

Gear manufacturing machines are used to cut, form, and finish gear teeth. They perform processes such as hobbing, milling, grinding, lapping, and deburring.

Grinders and Grinding Machines (988 suppliers)

Grinders and grinding machines use an abrasive that is bonded to a wheel, belt or disc to remove material and improve surface finish.

Honing, Lapping, and Super-finishing Machines (129 suppliers)

Honing, lapping and super-finishing equipment improve surface finish or geometry to tight tolerances.

Ironworkers (56 suppliers)

Ironworkers are machines used to notch, shear or punch holes into steel plates.

Lathes and Turning Centers (706 suppliers)

Lathes and turning centers cut a rotating part with a stationary cutting tool. The tool moves parallel and perpendicular to the workpiece axis to provide the desired finished shape.

Machining Centers (537 suppliers)

Machining centers are machine tools that are used to automatically repeat operations on a workpiece. They are usually numerically controlled. Operations include drilling, reaming, tapping, milling, and boring.

Milling Machines (671 suppliers)

Milling machines move a clamped workpiece into a fixed, rotating cutter; or move the cutter itself into a stationary workpiece. There are two basic configurations: vertical and horizontal.

Presses (metalworking) (518 suppliers)

Industrial presses (metalworking) use a ram to shear, punch, form or assemble metal or other material by means of cutting, shaping, or combination dies attached to slides. Examples include die cutting machines, forming and bending machines, punch presses, shop presses, sheet metal equipment, stamping presses, and wire forming machines.

Punch Presses (252 suppliers)

Punch presses are designed for stamping, punching, bending, shearing, converting, and assembly operations.

Sawing Machinery (734 suppliers)

Sawing machines and cut-off machines are used to cut raw materials to specified lengths or sizes.

Screw Machines (45 suppliers)

Screw machines are machine tools that use a number of cutting tools, fed into a rotating rod or bar, to make screws and other turned parts.

Shapers (metalworking) (22 suppliers)

Shapers are machines that are designed to create shapes by removing large amounts of material from metal bars and blocks. They operate by holding and moving a cutting tool in a linear motion against a stationary workpiece.

Slotting Machines (24 suppliers)

Slotting machines are cutting machines designed to machine slots into a workpiece.  Slotting machines are used for a variety of applications and industries.

Swiss Screw Machines (39 suppliers)

Swiss screw machines or automatics are turning machines with a sliding headstock, guide bushings and cross tools that can produce very small parts up to 1.250" diameter with consistently excellent surface finishes.

Transfer Machines (38 suppliers)

Transfer machines are used in medium-to-high volume machining operations for parts that require multiple processes. The main types of transfer machines are rotary transfer, in-line transfer, and trunnion transfer.

Wire Cutting Machines (58 suppliers)

Wire cutting machines are used to cut various types of wire and flexible tubing to specific lengths. These cutters can be programmed to cut to length.
