Computer numerical control, referred to as numerical control, as a form of numerical control processing technology based on computer control, is widely used in the manufacturing process. CNC machining and CNC turning services have basically involved all walks of life, covering medical, aviation, automotive, electronics, machinery, military industry, communications, sporting goods, food processing machinery, etc.
CNC turning is a subtractive manufacturing process programmed and managed by computer numerical control. The machine works by rotating the material while feeding it through the tool, removing what is not needed to make the final part.
Turning has been around for a long time, and you've probably heard of 3D printers making machines. However, the first automated lathes relied on machine screws for precise production on a lathe! Modern CNC turning centers use more precise ball screws that are driven by a computer-controlled motor (PC or PLC - which stands for Programmable Logic Controller, NC for Computer Numerical Control). This means we can take your CAD file and generate it accurately and automate the cutting cycle.
During CNC turning process, the metal bar rotates while the cutting tool rests on the blank to remove material and create the final part. Lathes quickly machine your parts with an additional live tool during the subtractive turning process. Outside diameter (OD) and inside diameter (ID) threads are also available. CNC-turned parts can then remain machined, with visible tool marks or sandblasted. After the run is complete, parts are inspected, boxed and shipped.
CNC turning processing shortens manufacturing time and improves production efficiency; obtains a high degree of automation, greatly reduces labor intensity, and achieves higher-precision production levels; realizes more complex prototype processing. CNC turning machining increases the consistency of machined parts, has a broader capability than the most skilled engineer, reduces maintenance, and is available in any shape, size or dimension.
Applications of CNC Turning: Medical and dental instruments require CNC turning processes to precisely shape parts. CNC turning processing puts the details such as points and corner ends on the application of the instrument. The application of CNC turning processing in the military and national defense industries has a long history. The precision and uniformity of CNC turning center production suits many aspects of the nature of the military.
