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.
