Unlike CNC milling, CNC turning is generally used to create round or tubular shapes.CNC milling can be used for rapidly manufacturing either prototypes or end-use parts.
Turning is a CNC machining process in which the workpiece is rotated at speed in a chuck. Unlike with CNC milling, the cutting tool does not spin.Turning can be carried out on metals like aluminum, magnesium, steel, stainless steel, brass, copper, bronze, titanium and nickel alloy, as well as plastics like nylon, polycarbonate, ABS, POM, PP, PMMA, PTFE, PEI, PEEK. CNC turning machines are also known as lathe machines.
Wanfuxin CNC machining products include mobile phone shell processing, cavity hardware processing, complex curved metal processing, security / communications electronics / tablet metal shell, internal components; bicycle parts; metal jewelry; LED radiator, aviation accessories, Medical accessories and so on.
While CNC milling is ideal for short-run volumes of prototypes and parts that are below 2.5” OD, CNC turning machines are better-suited for short-run volumes of larger parts above that threshold.Common applications for CNC turning include functional prototypes, spacers, manifolds, fittings, shafts, and bushings.
