What is CNC turning?

CNC turning produces parts by placing a blank on a rotating chuck and eliminating products making use of fixed cutting devices. This innovation is excellent for getting rid of symmetry along their facility axis. Turned components are typically produced faster (and at a reduced price) than machined parts.

Our CNC turning process produces custom prototypes and end-use production parts in as rapidly as 1 day. We make use of a CNC turret with online tooling so functions like axial and radial holes, flats, grooves, and ports can be machined.

CNC turning is often used for:
functional prototypes and end-use parts
parts with cylindrical features
parts with axial and radial holes, flats, grooves, and ports

CNC Turning FAQs

The CNC turning process is mostly ideal for cylindrical-shaped raw materials. However, several manufacturers also use it for hexagonal and square-shaped workpieces. It is a popular method for making machine parts for microfluidic tools, signage components, surgical instruments, automotive frames, and aerospace parts.
Yes, our CNC turning services include plastic parts manufacturing. We can produce small or large batch prototypes and production parts from various engineering-grade plastics. Choose from our extensive range of plastic materials and upload your design file to get custom plastic components.
The major difference between CNC milling and CNC lathe is in their machining process. CNC milling involves rotating the cutting tools against a stationary bar stock or workpiece. In contrast, a CNC lather works by rotating the bar stock or workpiece against a stationary tool. CNC milling is more suitable for machining irregular and flat surfaces, while CNC lathes work best for cylindrical or conical parts.
Typically, we recommend a minimum wall thickness of 0.5mm for metals and 1mm for plastics. However, these values largely depend on the size of the part; therefore the larger the part size, the higher the recommended minimum wall thickness should be. Please keep in mind that this does not imply that wall thicknesses with lesser values are unachievable. These recommendations are simply thresholds to limit the risk of warpage.
If a specific fillet radius is required, please specify. If not, the fillet radii that allow for easy machining will be added based on the machinist’s discretion. For a general idea, internal vertical edge radii could be >1/3*Depth and internal horizontal edges may be left sharp or have a 0.5mm to 1mm radius.
We can turn parts with diameters ranging from 0.5mm to 65mm for stock bars. Our turning capabilities can reach up to 3000 mm for billets.
Rough turning removes as much material as possible without a focus on accuracy and surface finish, getting the workpiece close to the desired shape. Finish turning “finishes” the process, producing the desired smoothness and accuracy.
CNC lathes are most often only 2 axis machines with one spindle. They also don’t have high production capabilities and typically don’t have a protective enclosure around the machine. CNC turning centers are more advanced versions of CNC lathes with up to 5 axes and more versatility in cutting ability. They also offer the ability to produce higher volumes and usually integrate milling, drilling, and other capabilities.
