CNC Turning


Visitors: 256

To produce hubs, rods, bushes, pulleys and shafts, CNC turning is utilized where the lathe generates materials after inserting the single cutter point in to the material turning. The procedure of cutting is executed through a cutting tool which is applied either parallel or at right angle to the axis, of work piece. The tool may also be fitted at an angle relative to the work piece axis for the machining angles and tapers. The work piece may be of any cross section, but the machine surface should be straight and tapered.

There are various shapes available in CNC like pointed, simple, radius with profile added with threaded surface, curve and fillet. The CNC machining is more economical than the CNC milling for producing the actual form through CNC turning. The material used for CNC turning possesses various qualities like material of work piece should be firm and can be of solid plastics. For the short running procedure of the mill, arrangements or alternative machine should be kept. CNC turning reduces the cost by minimizing the design elements.

CNC turning procedure is done through applying pressure on the work piece or the weaker material to form the flexible shapes of the material. Sometimes through CNC, the cut surface is formed by applying the helical feed as it results in rotation. The cutting procedure through which the work piece is eliminated from a material block by the help of the rotation of the tool is known as CNC milling. The work piece can rotate in perpendicular or circular way to produce different shapes and sizes. The cutting tool generally rotates in the CNC milling at an axis in a perpendicular form on the podium to generate various structures.

Variety of shapes that can be formed through CNC milling is 3D or 2D and some compound structured material. CNC milling for short procedure is also very economical. It is utilized to make different parts of engine, multifaceted mechanisms, enclosures and mold and custom tooling. Thus, CNC turning is a very effective procedure to make various machine parts of various shapes which is very significant for running the machine.
