What is CNC Turning?
CNC Turning is a method of cutting the workpiece on the CNC lathe by rotating the workpiece relative to the tool. The movement of the machinery is controlled by computer instructions, allowing for extreme precision and repeatability.CNC Turning is the most basic and common cutting method, which is suitable for machining revolving surfaces. Most workpieces with revolving surfaces can be processed by turning methods, such as inner and outer cylindrical surfaces, inner and outer conical surfaces, end faces, grooves, threads, and revolving forming surfaces.
How does CNC Turning work?
CNC lathes are complicated machines that require an in-depth understanding of their internal processes. The more you know about how they work, the better your chances will be at creating quality parts with accurate engravings on them.The CNC turning process includes the following main contents:
1. Analyze the manufacturability of the processed parts;
2. Drawing up the processing route, including dividing processes, selecting positioning benchmarks, arranging the processing sequence and combining processes, etc.;
3. Design the processing procedures, including selecting fixtures and tools, determining the path of the tool, and determining the amount of cutting, etc.;
4. Compile process documents

(3) Easy for new product development and modification, can greatly shorten the product development cycle.
(4) High precision and stable quality of processed parts.
3. What should I pay attention to when turning on a CNC lathe?
(1) Reasonable selection of cutting amount
For metal cnc turning, the material being processed, cutting tools, and cutting conditions are the three major elements. These determine the turning time, tool life and turning quality.With the increase in turning speed, the temperature of the tool tip will rise, which will cause mechanical, chemical, and thermal wear. Cutting speed increased by 20%, tool life will be reduced by 1/2. We should choose the cutting speed to be used according to the material,, hardness, cutting state, material type, feed rate, depth of cut, etc.
(2)Reasonable tools ① When rough cnc turning, choose the tool with high strength and good durability ②When finishing turning, choose the tool with high precision and good durability to ensure the requirements of machining accuracy.
What is your tolerances for CNC Turning Parts?
Material Plastic No Drawings Linear Dimension +/- 0.05 mm +/-0.1mm ISO2768-M Iner Diameter +/- 0.05 mm +/-0.1mm ISO2768-M Out Diameter +/- 0.05 mm +/-0.1mm ISO2768-M
+/- 0.05 mm
+/- 0.05 mm
+/- 0.05 mm
③In order to reduce the tool changing time and facilitate tool setting, machine chucked tools and machine chucked inserts should be used as much as possible
(3). Reasonable fixtures
①Try to use general fixtures to clamp the workpiece, avoid using special fixtures;
② The positioning datums of the parts coincide to reduce positioning errors.
(4) Determine the processing route
The processing route is the movement track and direction of the tool relative to the part during the processing of the index-controlled machine tool. ① It should be able to ensure the processing accuracy and surface roughness requirements;
②The processing route should be shortened as much as possible to reduce the idle travel time of the tool.
