CNC Turning

CNC Turning is also called cnc lathing. The high quality CNC turning is a manufacturing process in which bars of workpiece are held in place and rotated by the main spindle while a cutting tool is fed to cut the material to create the shape and size as per the drawing’s specifications.

Why using CNC turning machining service?

CNC turning machining service is now widely used for the processing of parts, such as cutting, grooving, drilling, reaming, reaming&boring. What are the main advantages of CNC turning machining service?

1. The quality is stable and the precision is high.

2. CNC lathing can be multi-coordinate linkage, and can process parts with complex shapes.

3. CNC turning is processed according to the programmed program. If the design of the part changes, it only needs to modify the program, which saves time and labor.

4. High degree of automation, High efficient, High Precision,and Cost Saving.  , and has high precision reducing manual labor.

The Difference Between CNC Milling Service And CNC Turning Service 

  • The working principle is different.

    CNC Turning is the rotation of the workpiece, and the CNC milling in China is the rotation of the cutting tool. A cnc lathe is mainly uses a turning tool to turn a rotating workpiece.

    Generally, the turning tool is fixed at a certain position on the machine tool, and the workpiece rotates along the axis under the clamping of the fixture, and is cut when it is close to the knife edge, so it is mainly suitable for machining shafts, discs, sleeves and other workpieces with rotating surfaces. .

  • The programming method is different.

    Determined by the working method, CNC lathing programming only needs to input two coordinates, milling machine needs to input 3 coordinate

  • The scope of work is different.

    CNC lathing can be used to process various rotary forming surfaces, such as intern6/al and external cylindrical surfaces, internal and external conical surfaces, internal and external threads, as well as end faces, grooves, knurling, etc.

    CNC Milling can process plane surfaces (horizontal, vertical), grooves (slot, T-slots, dovetail grooves, etc.), gear parts, helical surfaces (threads, spiral grooves) and various kind of curved surface.

The Process of CNC Lathing/CNC Turning

Analyze part drawingsCompare the specifications, performance and functions of the CNC lathe machine with the geometry and dimensions of the parts, and check whether they meet the requirements.
Analyze the processIn the process of CNC lathe processing, it cannot be adjusted manually like ordinary lathe machines, so an economical and reasonable process plan must be formulated in advance. It mainly includes the determination of part positioning and fixtures, machining sequence, tool paths, tools, cutting parameters, heat treatment methods, calibration and auxiliary processes.
Mathematical processing of graphicsestablish the workpiece coordinate system and perform necessary calculations, such as obtaining the coordinates of the center point and the end point.
ProgrammingThe program is a process described according to the digital representation provided by the CNC lathe machine, which is called processing code or G code.
Program verification and trial cuttingIn general, check whether the tool path is correct during the simulation process, then idling to observe whether the tool movement is normal, and finally clamp the material/workpiece for trial cutting.
Adjusting confirmationAdjust the programming to solve the problems exposed in the trial cutting.
For complex parts, cad/cam software is usually used to analyze part drawings, process analysis, mathematical processing and programming of graphics. Due to the different definitions of G codes in different CNC systems, it is necessary to select the corresponding post-processor in the cad/cam software to complete the generation of G codes.

Common CNC Turning Materials

Materials are important to our manufacturing operations and to customer's product quality. Good selection of materials in CNC machining processing is particularly critical, which not only helps to improve the efficiency of production activities, but also improve product quality, and meet the requirements of mechanical processing. Here we are listing some of the materials commonly used in our CNC turning machining services:




Due to its superior machinability, Aluminum alloys are an excellent material for CNC turning machining. Aluminum alloys are preferred materials for many industries as aluminum turned parts are good strength, light weight but high durable.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is well suited for a variety of cnc turning projects. It has excellent machinability and uniformity. It is widely used by clients due to its outstanding corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low temperature strength and overall mechanical properties


Steel is a wide use material in CNC turning service. Steel turning parts has the advantages of high strength, plasticity, heat resistance, good toughness


For the polymer materials using for CNC turning machining, the most popular polymer materials are ABS, PP, PC, PMMA, POM, Nylon, PET, PTFE, PE, etc. These materials are all widely used in CNC turning operations.


Titanium is a metal material with excellent corrosion resistance, good low temperature performance and high thermal strength. Titanium machined parts are commonly used in medical devices, aircraft and so on.


Brass is an alloy composed of copper and zinc. Brass has high strength, high hardness, strong chemical resistance and wear resistance. Brass is also one of the commonly used materials for CNC turning.


Copper has good electrical and thermal conductivity, and excellent plasticity. Copper is available for CNC turning and CNC machining
