CNC Turning is a machining process in which a cutting tool, typically a non-rotary tool bit, describes a helix toolpath by moving more or less linearly while the work piece rotates. As an industry leader in CNC turning, Alpha Precision understands what it takes for long-term success. We take all things into consideration when it comes to cost and time completion for the job. Prior to the CNC Turning days, machining was done manually. This created a lot more room for error, and was extremely more time consuming. With technological advancements, the use of computer-numerical control (CNC) became widespread and really sped up the process, as well as reducing errors dramatically. CNC turning is a technique of removing material from the workpiece in quick, repeated movements to make many well-finished identical components quickly and accurately.
How Our CNC Turning Process Works
CNC turning requires several years of intense training to master. The method uses many different types of machines and tools to create precise dimensions, designs, and/or features on a workpiece. Meanwhile, expert machinists work with various technologies to render functional parts and/or prototypes based on CAD/CAM specifications.
We utilize top-notch quick turn CNC machining techniques and advanced instruments to render variable tolerances on nearly any material. We then apply stringent, relevant standards to ensure compliance and conformity. But first, we consult with the customer to determine their goals and timeline.
