CNC turning is a machining process that creates exact parts with cylindrical shapes, like shafts and sleeves. Lead times start at just 6 days.
A pre-programmed computer program controlling the cutting tool enables high accuracy levels, making CNC turning capable of everything from simple to intricate parts. Another advantage is that this technology is compatible with almost any material – including a wide range of polymers and metals.
Turning is a subtractive manufacturing process also known as lathing. Like milling, turning machines also operate with a geometrically determined cutting edge. Instead of the tool, the workpiece is moving in a rotary way. Additionally, the cutting tool can move horizontally.
Starting at 6 days
CNC turning materials are suited for a wide range of use cases. The materials, including metals and polymers, offer different properties, such as strength, durability, heat resistance, and electrical conductivity, which can be tailored to specific applications and requirements.
Using a wide range of materials means you can choose the most cost-effective option for your projects.
