What is CNC Turning?

Turning is a method of cutting the workpiece on the lathe by rotating the workpiece relative to the tool. Turning is the most basic and common cutting processing method. Most workpieces with revolving surfaces can be processed by turning methods, such as inner and outer cylindrical surfaces, inner and outer conical surfaces, end surfaces, grooves, threads, and rotary forming surfaces.

Watch: Reducing Machining Costs

See how key design and material considerations can reduce your machining expenses.

Knurling on machined parts

Knurling is the use of a knurling knife to squeeze the workpiece to plastically deform the surface to form a pattern, so The radial pressure generated during knurling is great. When turning the knurled outer circle, according to the nature of the workpiece material and the size of the knurling pitch, the diameter of the knurled part is turned down (0.25 ~ 0.5) t mm.

CNC turning processing advantages

1. Good processing adaptability;

2. The tool is simple and flexible to use: the turning tool is the simplest of all kinds of tools, and it is convenient to manufacture and clamp;

3. Smooth cutting process: The turning process is continuous, and the cutting force changes little;

4. It is easy to ensure the accuracy of the surface positions of the processed parts;

5. Suitable for finishing of non-ferrous metal parts.
