What does CNC turning consist of?
Milling plastics with CNC machines is chip machining. It involves getting rid of excess material in a peripheral, point and shape manner. In CNC turning, rotary motion is performed by the lathe head, in which the workpiece is placed. On the other hand, the loss of material is carried out by the turning knives.
The cutting process with CNC machines is fully computerized. The machine operator is responsible for placing the product in the lathe, observing the turning process and verifying the cutting in terms of initial settings and compliance with the design.
