What is CNC Turning?

CNC turning is a machining process used to create cylindrical parts by removing material from a rotating workpiece with a cutting tool. Unlike CNC milling, which moves the cutting tool across multiple axes, CNC turning primarily operates on a single axis.

The workpiece is securely clamped in a chuck and rotated rapidly, while a stationary cutting tool, controlled by computerised instructions, moves along the length of the part to remove material and shape it into the desired form.

CNC turning is highly efficient and precise, making it capable of producing a wide range of cylindrical components such as shafts, rods and bushings with tight tolerances and smooth surface finishes.

What is CNC turning used for?

CNC turning is used across various industries for the precise and efficient manufacturing of cylindrical components. In the automotive sector, CNC turning machines produce engine parts like shafts, pistons and gears with high accuracy, contributing to vehicle performance and reliability. Aerospace companies rely on CNC turning for crafting critical components such as landing gear parts, hydraulic cylinders and fasteners, ensuring that they meet stringent quality and safety standards. Electronics companies also benefit from CNC turning for the manufacturing of connectors, housings and other intricate parts used in modern devices.

The benefits of CNC turning

CNC turning offers advantages that include high production rates, tight tolerances, and the ability to work with a wide range of materials. This is why it’s often chosen for the production of cylindrical parts that require extreme precision and consistency.

The system’s versatility, speed and ability to create intricate geometries with minimal setup time make it an excellent solution for all kinds of projects. It can be used for anything from relatively simple parts to highly complex components, all while remaining fast and cost-effective.
