While capable of processing square and hexagonal-shaped materials, the CNC turning process is best for tubular and circular shaped raw materials, including the following:
- Inner and outer cylindrical surfaces
- Inner and outer conical surfaces
- Grooves, threads & rotational molding surfaces
Modern CNC turning machines are capable of handling different tools, spindles, and speeds.
With various cutting tools available, CNC turning machines can create different parts with complex geometries.
Generally, CNC turning is popular for making parts with the following criteria:
- Rotary parts with the high precision requirement
- Rotary parts with good surface roughness
- Super precision parts with ultra-low surface roughness
- Rotary parts with complex surface shapes
- Rotary parts with horizontal machining
- Parts with some special types of threads
Overall, CNC turned parts are widely used in the field of machine manufacturing, aerospace, automobile part manufacturing, and service factories.
