CNC Turned Parts
CNC turning is a process that machines parts by "turning" a rod material. The rod is fed through to a cutting tool and create rotational parts by cutting away unwanted material, then shaped into a finished product. In CNC turning, the cutter is normally fed through a rotating work piece and this rotating work piece typically uses a variety of different angles as well as many different tool shapes. The CNC turning process requires a turning machine or lathe, workpiece, fixture, and cutting tool.
CNC turning is generally used for creating parts that are symmetrical near their axis.
