What is CNC Turning?
CNC turning is a process that machines parts by "turning" a rod material controlled by a computer. The rod is then fed through a cutting tool and the material is shaped into a finished product. In CNC turning, the cutter is normally fed through a rotating work piece. This rotating work piece typically uses a variety of different angles as well as many different tool shapes.
CNC turning is a very economical approach for creating parts that are symmetrical near their axis. A chess pawn would be a good example of a part that is symmetrical near its axis. The shapes that you can create using CNC turning tend to vary.
While most people use CNC turning to create turned parts that only utilize a single axis. It is also possible to use ones that have more than one axis; allowing for more flexibility. Naturally, you can combine CNC turning with CNC milling and other processes in order to create much more diverse shaped parts.
