CNC Turning is one of the most crucial processes on any industrial floor. It’s an easy and cost-effective way of manufacturing production parts and prototypes.
As the popularity of CNC turning services increase, there’s still a lot of things that most manufacturers don’t understand. Most people can’t even differentiate CNC turning from CNC milling.
So below, we look to help you get a better understanding of this service.
What is CNC Turning?
CNC turning is simply the process of removing extra materials from a workpiece to shape it into the intended shape. It’s a type of machining process where the material is spun at very high speeds while the cutting tool chops off all the unnecessary material.
This process is called subtractive machining, and the end products are usually round, square or hexagonal in shape.
With these in mind, here are some of the critical things you should know:
