cnc turning

CNC Turning, in the operation of a machine shop,  is a a method of machining a part in which bars of material are held in a chuck and rotated while a tool is fed to the piece to remove material to create the desired shape. This rotation is performed by a lathe that secures and spins the part being machined .A turret with tooling attached is programmed to move to the bar of raw material and remove material to create the programmed result. This is also called “subtraction machining” since it involves material removal. If the center has both tuning and milling capabilities, such as the one above, the rotation can be stopped to allow for milling out of other shapes.

The turning process is suitable for mass production of high precision small components, such as components for cell phone, medical devices, optical equipments, automobile, lighting industry, office equipment, etc.

ZHT precision produced thousands of CNC turned components these years. Like washers, bolts, shafts, rivets, spacers, sleeves, nipples, stainless steel fittings, pipe fittings, light fittings, wheel studs, etc. We can always choose the suitable turning process to reach your requirement of both quality and price.
