Let’s now give you some insight how Norck manufactures parts with CNC turning.

What is CNC turning?

CNC turning (Computer Numerical Controlled turning) designates a process in which a workpiece is held into a lathe and spun at high speeds. A computer controls the machining tool to remove material and get the desired shape.The CNC machine controls the rotation of the workpiece at various speeds and the instrument's movement.

What are the advantages of CNC turning?

CNC turning offers more advantages over traditional turning methods:

   •   More accuracy: CNC turning offers tight tolerances, around ±0.0025mm
   •   Consistency: Since a computer executes the process, it minimizes human error.
   •   Faster fabrication: The fabrication process time is cut short because of the use of a computer to control the process.
   •   Lower production costs : The production cost is reduced because the operator has fewer interventions for controlling the tool's trajectory and changes.
   •   Safer : The CNC machine has no access to the workpiece and tools when cutting the part.

How is it fabricated?

CNC turning uses a lathe to turn workpieces at high speeds and a tool with a special shape to remove layers of material from the workpiece. The workpiece shape is generally revolutionary.

Longitudinal Turning

If the workpiece is long enough, an extra part is used to support the weight of the workpiece.

Drilling designates the process of making holes into the workpiece. The holes are parallel to the spinning. This process includes taping, counterboring, and countersinking.


What distinguishes CNC turning from milling?

The difference between turning and milling is that, in turning, the workpiece rotates while the tool is stationary. While milling, the workpiece is fixed, and the milling tool rotates.

CNC turning is used when the desired shape is cylindrical or conical, while CNC milling is used when the desired shape is flat. Our engineers will help you decide which process suits your needs.
