Precision CNC Turning

At Ability Metal, we are committed to providing you with the highest-precision CNC turning services available in the market. We have gained a reputation for speed, accuracy, and reliability, due to the seasoned, highly-trained team of machinists operating our state-of-the-art and high-precision CNC lathes.

Ability Metal provides high-precision, close-tolerance multifunction CNC turning, and related services to meet the strict demands of customers in a wide range of industries. With our innovative machining techniques and advanced CNC turning technology, we are dedicated to providing you with parts at the lowest available production costs, with the tightest possible tolerances, and within the fastest cycle times.


To give you the best service possible, Ability Metal has implemented cost-efficient lean methodologies in our production processes. We have invested in the best equipment available and provided extensive training for our staff on best practices and techniques. Our commitment to customer service, adherence to project timelines, and significant investments in equipment and training have led our customers to associate our name with reliability and efficiency.

Ability Metal is constantly expanding our CNC turning capabilities. Currently, we have a range of two-axis CNC lathes, as well as highly advanced multi-spindle, eight-axis Swiss-style CNC lathes with the capability to turn workpieces at both ends. Our MORI SEIKI CNC turning machines are capable of turning workpieces up to 14 inches in diameter.

With these systems, complete machining is possible in a single cycle, due largely to an automated, no-touch spindle transfer process. The majority of CNC lathes we possess offer live tooling capabilities, making it possible to perform turning and milling tasks using only one lathe. This combination of turning and milling in a single device means that we can work with complex design specifications, geometries, and turns, and also enables us to incorporate a wide range of materials using just a single setup. High precision, lower costs, and speedy delivery rank highly among the many advantages you will gain by partnering with Ability Metal.

Our manufacturing processes are subject to intensive quality checks to ensure that they meet the requirements of our customers. A series of quality checks are regularly performed on all production runs, including first piece and final inspections, as well as mid-production checks. We adhere to strict Statistical Process Control (SPC) standards.

Ability Metal is committed to investments in continuous improvement programs for our engineers.  Our staff is fully trained and qualified, enabling them to harness the full capabilities of our advanced equipment to meet the needs of even the most demanding projects and designs.
