CNC turning is one of the most widely used manufacturing process for producing parts out of material bars. Prolean provides CNC turning services for high-precision parts used by automation, aerospace, medical, robotics, and other industries.
With our latest CNC lathes and turning centers, even the most complex turned parts are possible. Our experienced engineers work with your designs and deliver bespoke parts with tight tolerances.
What is CNC Turning?
CNC turning is a material removal process used for producing cylindrical parts out of bars of raw material which usually have round but can have hexagonal or square cross-sections too. CNC turning is employed for production of cylindrical and tubular parts like screws, bolts, and washers.
In CNC turning, a cylindrical bar of material is held in a chuck able to rotate at high speeds. A moving single-point cutting tool removes material on the bar’s outer surface or drills a hole in the inner region to produce the geometry as per design.
The rotating nature of raw material is why turning has the limitation of only producing cylindrical parts. It is also the reason CNC turning is often the most efficient and affordable way of producing certain cylindrical and tubular parts. CNC turning is known for its high-precision surface finishes and rapid production capabilities.
CNC turning is not only a surface machining process either as it includes processes like drilling, facing, boring, cutting, threading, and knurling as well. This gives CNC turning advantage of performing multiple operations without removing the workpiece which also improves accuracy.
Prolean CNC Turning
Prolean’s CNC turning services provide comprehensive solutions for manufacturing of all kinds of turned parts. From design to delivery, we streamline everything for smooth experience and best quality.
Our engineers run feasibility checks on all designs. When required, we offer design help to make the part feasible and machining efficient. Before production begins, we double-check all the dimensions and tolerances so that each part satisfies the highest standards.
