What is CNC Turning?
Definition: CNC turning refers to the manufacture of cylindrical components. CNC turning is performed in a CNC lathe also known as a CNC turning centre. The component rotates at a high rate of speed and a cutting tool traverses along 1, 2, or 3 axes to produce precise diameters and depths.
CNC turning is performed in a CNC lathe also known as a CNC turning centre. The plastic component rotates at a high rate of speed and a cutting tool traverses along 1, 2, or 3 axes to produce precise diameters and depths.
Turning can be performed on the inside or outside of a workpiece, which makes it possible to create hollow components. The speed of the lathe is set relative to the plastic’s characteristics, and the size of the lathe is roughly matched to the dimensions of the part being turned. Some of the engineering thermoplatics we use on our lathes include Delrin, PEEK, PVC, Acrylic, Nylon, ABS, and Acetal.
All Axis is equipped with a variety of CNC and manually operated lathes. Our capacity encompasses grooving, facing, knurling and treading processes.
Our FANUC CNC turning machines are capable of producing precision plastic components in varying sizes from small parts – such as bolts, nuts and washers, to parts with larger diameters - such as friction plates and rollers. Our energy-efficient FANUC CNC machines are quick to program and easy to use, guarantee maximum quality and short cycle times.
All Axis’ dynamic team is led by craftsmen each with over 25 years experience. Long-term colleagues, alongside subsequent generations of expertly trained engineers and technicians, together ensure our company remains a versatile and trusted industry resource.
