CNC Turning

CNC Turning is a process used to produce cylindrical components through metal cutting using computer numerically controlled (CNC) lathes. From a technical drawing, the Machinist must program the software controlled machine and then set the needed cutting tools, to fabricate the desired customer part to an accuracy of 0,01mm. (This is a human hair split approximately 8 times). Programming of the CNC lathe takes place through well-known machine control unit and/or a Computer-Aided Machining (CAM) software. Machinists can use either the machine control unit and/or the CAM software to produce the final product according to the given drawing specification. Such parts are used everywhere in metal industries, such as automotive, tool and die, aviation, and even in the aerospace industries.
