What Kind Of Materials Can Be CNC Turned?

While potentially any solid, stable material can be turned, we work with hard plastic and metals. Note that some tool steel maybe too hard to cut on a lathe or mill or else will require special treatment and a longer production time. Soft elastomers or plastics may also be impossible to turn since they cannot be held in a fixed position or would change in shape under the pressure of the cutting tool

  • CNC turning metals

    Aluminum' target='_blank'>machining is a key part of Kaierwo’s services catalog, but CNC turning can also be used to process metals like magnesium, steel, stainless steel, brass, copper, bronze, titanium and nickel alloy.

  • CNC turning plastics

    While precision machining is typically used for metals, Kaierwo can also provide CNC turning services for plastic parts. Materials available for CNC turning include nylon, polycarbonate, ABS, POM, PP, PMMA, PTFE, PEI, PEEK, providing more accurate parts than 3D printing.

Design Guidelines for CNC Turning

Our basic guidelines for CNC turning include important design considerations to help improve part manufacturability, enhance cosmetic appearance, and reduce overall production time.

      US Metric
Maximum Dimensions Diameter 3.95 in. 100.33mm
Length 9 in. 228.6mm
Minimum Dimensions Diameter 0.16 in. 4.07mm
Length 0.05 in. 1.27mm
Wall Thickness 0.020 in. 0.51mm
Angle 30° 30°
Tolerances   +/- 0.005 in. +/- 0.13mm

Surface Finish Options for Turned Parts

Parts that are turned typically have a very smooth surface finish.  The as-machined surface finish of the cylindrical areas will typically be much smoother using the lathe than the mill, so consider this when selecting the machining method for those parts that qualify for either method.  Areas cut with live tooling, such as flats and slots, may have visible tools marks.

Not only can provide high-quality parts machining, but Kaierwo can also finish excellent surface finish, including: as machined, smooth, painting, anodize, bead blasting, oxidation, polishing, powder coating, plating, knurling , brushing, passivation etc.

  • 1.What Kind of services a CNC Machining offers?

    A CNC machining process can offer a wide range of services including threading, turning, milling. drilling, prototyping tapping, part design, and reverse engineering, parts dispatching, and limited material warehousing.

  • 2.What is the Role of CNC Machinists?

    CNC Machinists work with heavy machinery of CNC Prototype almost durin al operations from inial setup to operation and production of differentparts and tools from plastic, metal, and other materials.The finalstep incudes drlling grinding. and cutting of the material based on the instructionsguided by CNC Machinist.

  • 3.What is Meant by the 5 axes on a CNC Machine?

    The term axis represents the direction of movement of the cutting tool. n a 5-axis machine, thedrlling or cutting tool rotates on Aand B while moveson X, Y and, Z linear axes and approach the work-piece in any direction.

  • 4.Can Vowin make design drawings for me?

    We don't provide design services. You are responsible for submitting 2D and 3D CAD drawings, and we can then provide a Design for Mant facturing review upon receiving your order.

  • 5.How do l know my design will be kept confidential?

    We of coursewil sign and adhere to any non-disclosure or confidentiality agreement. We also have a strict policy within our factory that no photographs are ever lwed of a customers product without express permission. Ultimately we rely on our reputation of working with hundreds ofthousands of unique designs over many years and never allowing any proprietary information to be disclosed to a third party.
