CNC Turning is a manufacturing process in which bars with the material are held in a chuck and rotated while a tool is fed to the piece to remove material to create the desired shape under the computer-controlled. CNC turning is best suited for parts with diameters.With secondary CNC milling operations,the final part can have a variety of shapes or features.The Lathe process is feasible for complex external geometries and internal bores to be shaped with high precision for both plastics and metals.
CNC turning CNC lathe is a subtractive machining process where a cutting tool is placed against a spinning piece to take material off.This is usually done with a CNC lathe or turning center which cuts the material including wood, metal and plastic.This article will cover the difference types of CNC lathes,their components,and which type you could use for your next project. All of these features make our innovative CNC turning machinery well-suited for the manufacturing of highly complex,precision parts.
CNC turning is best suited for parts with diameters.With secondary CNC Milling operations,the final part can have a variety of shapes or features. Parts with any diameter are potentially suitable for CNC turning,and CNC turning is extremely efficient for small to large-sized,high volume contract manufacturing.All features such as a bar feeder,part catcher,and chip conveyor all maximized run time.
High accurate and can be repeated in exactly the same manner over and over again
Quick remove large amount of spare materials
Wide range of materials,variety of plastics and metals
Small and micro parts
Low investment in tooling making and preparation

If you’re considering to manufacture your parts with CNC turning,CNC Milling,CNC machining, it’s very important to know what kinds of materials and surface finishing you will choose for your CNC turned parts no matter plastics or metals.We’ve worked with wide range of materials and can apply all types of treatment to your CNC prototypes. Thanks to dedicated engineers and surface finishing colleagues. Are you sourcing custom CNC parts with high appearance or good protection? Boen is here for you.
Plastics : ABS, PP, PMMA（Acrylic), PC, POM(Delrin), PBT, Nylon(PA), PU, RESIN，PEEK,PE,PTFE(Teflon),G-10(FR-4), PVC,EVA,EPS, Ultum 1000( AMBER PEI )
Metals: Stainless Steel, Steel, Aluminium, Brass, Copper, Iron,Magnesium,Tool steel,Alloy SteelWhat’s More: We’re capable to create custom material like PA GF30 PPS30. It’s no problem for us to do further discovery for more materials. To get started with our team.
As Machined: The common and most economical way for inner function parts. Fine and even tool path is also good for aspect parts.
Powder Coating: It’s where powder paint to be sprayed onto a part and to be baked on the oven. This will create strong ,corrosion-resistant layer that is much durable than standard painting process. A wide variety of colors are available to create the desired aesthetic.
Anodized: Parts can be anodized in different colors-clear,black,red,blue are most common; Hard anodize is thicker and creates a wear-resistant layer.
Bead blasted: With this finish the part would be matte appearance.Range of 120-320 beads is flexible to create different roughness to the surface.
Chrome Plating: It’s of electroplating a thin layer of chromium onto a metal object.The chromed layer can be decorative with corrosion resistance,ease cleaning procedures,and increase surface hardness.
Painting: The parts no matter plastic or metal ,to be sprayed painting onto the surface to achieve the desired aesthetic. A wide variety of colors are available.
