What is CNC Turning?
CNC Turning is a manufacturing process. Metal bars are held and rotated while a tool removes material to create a shape. It is the opposite of drilling, where the tool rotates and the material remains stationary.
A center with both turning and milling capabilities can stop rotation to allow for milling out of other shapes. Turning parts on CNC turning centers allows for a wide range of complexities, sizes and material types.
The starting material can be round, square or hexagonal-shaped.
Bar length is based on the feeder.
The tools in CNC lathes or turning centers are digitally controlled
CNCs with live tooling, such as those at Automated Production, Inc., can stop rotation to add additional features like drilled holes, slots and milled surfaces.
Some CNC turning centers allow work to be completed on both sides by employing an additional spindle.
CNC turning centers vary in tooling and spindle options, as well as outer diameter (OD) limitations.

What is CNC Milling?
CNC Milling is a manufacturing process. It performs many of the operations of both drilling and cutting.
A CNC mill drills and turns a piece of metal stock along an axes to cut and shape the stock to meet the pre-programmed requirements. Where a lathe turns a piece of stock to create the necessary part, a mill cuts a shape out by removing excess material.
A variety of types of CNC mills exist
APM has 2 CNC Vertical Mills, 3 CNC Horizontal Machining Centers and 5 CNC Vertical Machining Centers
Some milling features are included on CNC lathes with live tooling, dramatically reducing production time

From robots to airplanes, equipment requires custom metal or plastic parts to meet the precise specifications required for them to operate efficiently.
Automated Production Machining, Inc. does not offer off-the-shelf parts. Each product is produced according to your exact specifications, in the quantity required.
Custom Manufacturing Processes
Injection-molding, casting and additive manufacturing are just a few examples of custom manufacturing. Since so many types exist, it is important to choose what works for your product.
At Automated Production Machining, Inc. we specialize in machining:
Unlike other types of manufacturing, machining allows us to create strong and durable parts that withstand intense pressure. CNC machining starts with a solid block of material and removes what is not needed. Because the raw material is strong to begin with, the end result remains strong.
Advantages of Custom Manufacturing
- Less waste, order only what you need
- Orders are easily replicated for future needs
- No more overcrowded warehouses full of obsolete parts
- Easier to implement design changes once products are tested
- Variety of delivery options
