Turning is the process of machining using cutting tools to progressively remove material by advancing a cutter into a workpiece, and produce a custom-designed part. Automated control of machine tools is enabled by using a prepared software program. CNC turning provides greater efficiency, accuracy and uniformity. This technology is applied to a wide range materials. Equipment includes CNC lathes with bar feeders, live tooling and mill-drill capabilities, Swiss-style CNC lathes and chuckers.
