How Does CNC Turning Work?

The precision equipment used in producing turned components is called a CNC lathe machine. CNC turning is a subtractive manufacturing process that shapes raw materials into desired components using a lathe machine. The workpiece is rotated by the lathe while a cutting tool precisely removes excess material, resulting in the creation of intricate shapes and features. 

What are the Operational Capabilities of CNC Turning?

A CNC turning machine has operational capabilities which allow it to achieve your desired parts efficiently and precisely.

These operational capabilities are as follows:

  • Milling and Drilling: In addition to turning, CNC turning machines are capable of performing milling and drilling operations to create holes, slots, and complex features.
  • Threading: Threading is a process where a single-point tool is used to create internal and external threads on the workpiece. 
  • Knurling: When parts require extra grip, knurling is a process that cuts a serrated pattern on the material.
  • Spherical Generation: This process is utilized when a sphere needs to be formed at the end of a part.
  • Broaching: Broaching removes material from a workpiece using a sharp, toothed, and hardened tool. The process must be consistent, continuous, and accurate.
  • Internal forming: Internal forming refers to forming parts using a tool driven into the bore, such as turning and boring.

Different Types of Turning

CNC turning utilizes various techniques in order to meet specific manufacturing requirements and create the desired part.

Some of these turning types include:

  • Straight turning: Also known as cylindrical turning, this turning type can decrease the diameter in a consistent motion to prevent variation in the diameter. During this process, large parts are removed to prepare the part before precision cuts.
  • Taper turning: This technique produces a conical shape on the workpiece. 
  • Grooving: Grooving is a process that utilizes a shaped tool to form a precise, narrow cavity around the circumference of the part.
  • Face Turning: In this process, the cutting tool moves perpendicular to the rotational axis, allowing for the creation of flat surfaces on the workpiece.

Common Industries that Utilize CNC Turning

The capabilities of a CNC turning machine allows manufacturers to leverage a single machine for a wide range of tasks. Businesses across many industries can optimize production and enhance efficiency, while achieving consistent results.

Some industries that use CNC turning are as follows:

  • Aerospace
  • Hydraulics
  • Automotive
  • Medical device manufacturing
  • Construction
  • Metalworking
  • Marine
  • Oil & gas 

In addition, CNC turning uses metals, such as, stainless steel, brass, bronze, carbon steel, copper, aluminum, titanium, steel, tool steel, plastics, and exotic alloys to create various products and parts.
