Advantages and Disadvantages of CNC Turning


Accuracy and precision which only CNC Machinery can provide

Less wastage when compared to manual turning due to highly refined and optimised machining process

Most effective method for manufacturing large volume quantities

Needs a highly skilled and experienced engineer to control the CNC lathe

Can be associated with high costs when CNC Machinery needs maintenance

Can be more expensive per part when compared to other CNC manufacturing, especially when manufacturing very low-volume turned parts


What is CNC turning?

CNC turning, or Computer Numerical Control Turning, is the process in which custom turned parts are manufactured through the operating of a lathe. Where CNC Milling rotates the cutting tool, CNC Turning rotates the work piece at high speeds using a cutting tool to shape the material as required. By using CNC technology, the precision skilled engineers can attain using turning machinery is unparalleled.

What is CNC turning used for?

As CNC turning rotates the work piece at high speed, not the cutter, CNC turning is most commonly used for manufacturing multiple cylindrical turned components from raw material.

What are the types of CNC Lathes?

Horizontal: the more common type of CNC Lathe. In this instance, the horizontal lathe fastens the work piece from the side in order to rotate for manufacturing.

Vertical: Here, the workpiece is fastened to the bottom of the machine for rotation.
