What is CNC Turning?

CNC turning is a subtractive manufacturing process, programmed and managed by computer numerical control (CNC). The machine works by rotating the material, whilst it is fed through the tool, removing what is not needed to create the final part.

Turning has been around for thousands of years, you may have heard of 3D printing machines building machines. But, the first automated lathes relied on machine screws, accurately produced on lathes! Modern turning centers use even more accurate ball screws, these are actuated by motors controlled by a computer (PC or PLC - stands for Programmable Logic Controller, CNC stands for Computerized Numerical Control). This means we can take your CAD file and accurately produce it, and automate the cutting cycle.
