What Is CNC Turning?


CNC Turning is an intricate and detailed method of creating custom parts and components using a lathe. CNC turning is a highly skilled, precision Engineering process. Our CNC turning centres are capable of high-speed turning of both plastic and metals to create end-parts with complex external geometries, cylindrical features, threads and internal bores.

Difference Between CNC Milling and CNC Turning


CNC milling uses computer programs and cods to drill and cut the material along axes and dimensions according to command entered in the computer. CNC turning uses computer-controlled machines to create a different final product. The difference is this process use single point cutting tool that insert parallel to the cutting material. In CNC milling, users can manually override CNC machines to slow or speed up the process. But turning is fully automatic processing. 

Turning Processing Technology


In the turning process, according to the shape and functional requirements of different parts, the external and internal processing operations. External operations include: turning, facing, grooving, cut-off, thread cutting, etc. Internal operations including: drilling, boring, reaming, tapping etc. Finally get the parts you need.
