Introduction To The Characteristics Of CNC Turning

January 21,2022

Due to the development of modern science and technology, all kinds of engineering materials with high strength and high hardness are more and more adopted. The traditional turning technology is not competent or can not realize the processing of some high strength and high hardness materials at all. The modern hard turning technology makes it possible and obtains obvious benefits in production.


Here is a brief introduction to the characteristics of turning:

High efficiency


Turning has higher efficiency than grinding. Turning often adopts large cutting depth and high workpiece speed, and its metal removal rate is usually several times that of grinding. In turning, one clamping can complete a variety of surface machining, while grinding needs multiple installation, so its auxiliary time is short and the position accuracy between machined surfaces is high.


Low cost


The equipment investment cost is low. When the productivity is the same, the investment of turning is obviously better than that of grinder, and the cost of its auxiliary system is also low. For small batch production, turning does not need special equipment, while mass processing of high-precision parts requires CNC machine tools with good rigidity, high positioning accuracy and repeated positioning accuracy.


Suitable for small batch


The requirements of small batch is a flexible processing method with a wide processing range. The turning is easy to operate and the turning clamping is fast. Compared with grinding, hard turning can better meet the requirements of flexible production.


Hard turning can make parts obtain good overall machining accuracy


Most of the heat produced in hard turning is taken away by cutting oil, which will not produce surface burns and cracks like grinding. It has excellent machining surface quality and accurate machining roundness, which can ensure high position accuracy between machining surfaces.
