CNC turning Services at Davantech
Lathing or turning of metal and plastic parts is a form of machining. More specific, it is a material removal process. Therefore, we cut chips from a rotating piece of material with a cutting tool called chisel. Our high quality cnc turning services in China require turning machines or lathes. In brief, we clamp the custom made turning parts in the machine and machine it with a cutting tool. The workpiece is a piece of pre-shaped material or a bar. We clamp it and it rotates at high speeds. The cutter is typically a single-point cutting tool. We secure it also in the machine. Although some operations make use of multi-point tools, the cutting tool feeds into the rotating workpiece.
What is CNC Turning?
CNC turning is a subtractive manufacturing process that involves rotating a workpiece while a cutting tool removes material to create a cylindrical shape. We use this process to produce a variety of parts, including shafts, pins, and other cylindrical components. In addition, CNC turning machines use computer-controlled tools to precisely cut and shape the material, resulting in high-quality parts with tight tolerances and excellent surface finishes.
By turning (also called lathing), we produce rotational parts that have many features. More specific, these features are holes, grooves, threads, tapers, various diameter steps and even contoured surfaces. We often make turning parts in smaller quantities. In particular, these parts are prototypes or custom designed shafts and fasteners. Next, we use turning as a secondary process. In detail, we add or refine features on parts that are manufactured using a different process. With turning we achieve high tolerances and surface finishes up to +/-0.05mm.
How CNC Turning Works
CNC turning involves several steps:
- Design: A CAD (computer-aided design) model is created using specialized software.
- Programming: The CAD model is converted into a CNC program that the machine can understand.
- Setup: The workpiece is securely clamped onto the machine’s chuck, and the cutting tool is inserted into the tool holder.
- Operation: The machine rotates the workpiece and moves the cutting tool along the x and z axes to remove material and create the desired shape.
- Finishing: Once the turning operation is complete, the part may undergo additional finishing processes, such as polishing or coating, to improve its appearance or functionality.
Advantages of CNC Turning
CNC turning offers several advantages over other manufacturing processes:
- High Precision: CNC turning machines can produce parts with tight tolerances and excellent surface finishes, making them ideal for applications that require high precision.
- Versatility: CNC turning can be used to produce a wide range of parts, from simple shafts to complex components with multiple features.
- Efficiency: CNC turning is a highly efficient process that can produce parts quickly and accurately, reducing lead times and increasing productivity.
