What is CNC Turning?

CNC Turning is a machining process used to make cylindrical parts, in which a cutting tool, typically a non-rotary tool bit, describes a helical toolpath by moving more or less linearly while the workpiece rotates. The tool's axes of movement may be literally a straight line, or they may be along some set of curves or angles, but they are essentially linear (in the nonmathematical sense). Usually the term "turning" is reserved for the generation of external surfaces by this cutting action, whereas this same essential cutting action when applied to internal surfaces (that is, holes, of one kind or another) is called "boring". Thus the phrase "turning and boring" categorizes the larger family of (essentially similar) processes. Commonly performed with a lathe, turning reduces the diameter of a workpiece, typically to a specified dimension, and produces a smooth part finish. A CNC turning center is a lathe with a computer numerical control (CNC). Sophisticated CNC turning centers can also perform a variety of milling and drilling operations.

Our broad selection of advanced Mazak CNC turning centers, some of which include Multi-Tasking capabilities, productively handle everything from small part turning to the heavy-duty cutting of large, long-shaft workpieces, and in production quantities that range from single pieces to thousands of components per week. Our 2 and 3 axis lathes have turning capacity up to 600mm diameter and though bore capacity up to six inches or 150mm.
