CNC Turning at Saturn Industries
A component can be created in the finest detail and to rigid of designs using a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) lathe, with precise tolerances and in a variety of shapes. The turning lathe secures and rotates the chosen material, while a single point cutting tool shapes the material, resulting in the desired product. The lathe is controlled by the computer program; ensuring exact components are produced, and reproduced. At Saturn Industries, we pride ourselves on being the leaders in the latest CNC Turning Technology and Processes, and on our ability to create the parts our customers demand cost-effectively and on-time.
Difference Between CNC Milling and Turning
CNC Milling and CNC Turning allow users to create patterns and add detail to metals that are impossible to do by hand. CNC Milling uses commands, codes programmed into the computer and set to run. The mill then drills and turns along axes to cut materials to dimensions entered into the computer. Computer programming allows machines to make precise cuts, users can manually override the CNC Machines to slow or speed up the process.
In contrast, CNC Turning uses computer-controlled machines to create a different final product. The process uses a single-point cutting tool that inserts parallel to the material to cut. The material is rotated at changing speeds and the tool cutting traverses to create cylindrical cuts with exact measurements. It is used to create circular or tubular shares from larger material pieces. It is an automated process and speeds can be adjustments for greater accuracy rather than turning a lathe by hand.
If you’re not sure if your part should be best produced by Turning or Milling, call our experts, we’ll go over the project and recommend the best process for your project.
