CNC Turning: Improving Speed & Quality While Reducing Costs

Leave a Comment

Computer numerical control (CNC) turning is a subtractive machining process that shapes bars of raw material into cylindrical components with precision. The technique controls equipment like lathes through computer-aided design (CAD) programs and digital instructions, applying a stationary tool to a rotating workpiece to remove material with rotational symmetry. CNC turning achieves tighter tolerances for […]
