The ability to be heat treated and provide corrosion resistance qualities is one advantage of employing steel alloys.

Steel has a broad range of possible uses for CNC milling, including medical equipment, electronics hardware, and other items requiring more formability and weldability.

Steel is sensitive to temperature changes Susceptible to fatigue and cracking higher cost of production.
