CNC Turning

WHAT IS CNC TURNING​

CNC turning is used to create primarily cylindrical parts. These can be shafts, custom hollow tubes, conical shapes or any other axially symmetric part.

Turning is generally carried out on Lathes (CNC or conventional) but can also be achieved using multi axis machining on CNC machining centres to produce cylindrical parts.

On a lathe the chuck holds the part or raw material – often in the form of a round bar – in place. The chuck spins along with the spindle at high speeds. The maximum speed, or RPM, depends on the size and type of material being cut.

The single point cutting tool is attached in a turret. The turret can move to and from the working piece while it is spinning, bringing the tools into contact with the material for cutting.

This highly accurate machining method makes it possible to obtain very tight tolerances often without the need for additional grinding.
