CNC Turning Definition

CNC Turning refers to the machining process which takes place on CNC Turning machine or CNC Lathe. At turning process, the material rod is fixed at a chunk and rotated, a single-point cutting tool that inserts parallel to the material rod to remove the material from the rotating rod. The cutting tool is controlled by a computer-aided program to create the desired parts.


CNC Turning Equipment


CNC lathe or CNC turning center is an automatic machine with high precision and high efficiency. Equipped with multi-position knife tower or power cutter tower, the machine tool has a wide range of processing performance. It can process linear cylinder, slant cylinder, arc, and various threads, grooves, worm, It can also process some complex revolving surfaces, such as hyperboloid, etc.


CNC Turning Advantages

  1. Easy to ensure the accuracy of each turning surface.
  2. Turning process is stable, high precision.
  3. Suitable for fine finishing of non-ferrous metals.
  4. The lathe tool is the simplest one in the cutting tool, easy for regrinding and fixing.

Reasonable selection of cutting fluid

Reasonable selection of cutting fluid can reduce friction in cutting process and improve heat dissipation conditions, thereby reducing cutting force, cutting power and cutting temperature, reducing tool wear and improving machining surface quality. Coarse cutting has a large amount of cutting heat, and the tool is easy to wear, especially for high-speed steel. Cooling-based cutting fluids, such as emulsifier or aqueous solution, should be selected.


The cutting fluid for fine machining are mainly lubricated to improve the surface accuracy and roughness of the workpiece, so good to use extreme pressure cutting oil or ionic cutting fluids.
