Vital Facts About CNC Turning And High Precision Machining


CNC turning is a simple technique of cutting a metal or plastic on the top of a lathe. It is a tooling which turns and spins a material into a rotating geometry in a machine outlet. This spinning can be done either manually or automatically with such precision machines. This machine is driven by a computer numerical control system and hence has been named so. These machines usually remove the materials with the help of a rotating cutting tool.

In case of CNC turning in Yorkshire or anywhere for that matter, the material is usually placed over the lathe and the cutter is then made to move along the longitudinal as well as transverse axis. The cutting tool is utilized till the desired depth and dimension can be obtained. The machine can be operated from both the sides as per the needs and requirements. The rotating turner controls the tooling motion via a computer program. Large machine parts are quite difficult to rotate and balance over one focal point. These can be run on U axis equipped machines. The turner is about 1000 mm in length and it revolves at a speed of 4000 revolutions per second when the drive power is 46KW.

The turner can usually provide components of various shapes. It can manufacture planar, contoured or tapering component surfaces. These can impart a characteristic shape to the metal pieces like that of rods, pulleys etc. Apart from CNC turning, many industries also depend quite a lot on heavy gas CNC machining in Yorkshire. This technique is particularly used for manufacturing components having a rounded cross section. This process is applicable for all kinds of rigid components that can be manoeuvred using the computer program. CNC rotating is somewhat more cost effective than milling but it has less flexibility in producing components of different designs.

The rotating machines can produce high precision components within quick time. The other advantage offered by such turning is the uniformity and the consistency of the produced components. Machines have revolutionised the modern day world and the contribution of these high precision machines have been simply instrumental.
