The CNC turning process
Brooklyn Engineering is at the forefront of adhering to industry standards through an impeccable model of a well-documented Quality Management System. Brooklyn Engineering implements the quality standards across all levels of the products and service offering.
In this article, we will be looking at the CNC turning process in detail as well as the specific applications in which the CNC process is used. To begin with, the acronym “CNC” is Computer Numerical Control technology. This technology offers enhanced precision and automation to streamline manual processes and tasks.
CNC is predominantly utilised in manufacturing contexts where bars of material are held and rotated while the tool is fed to the specific piece to produce a desired shape. Production capabilities and industries related include Drilling, Boring, Facing, Grooving, Knurling as well as Parting. The illustrative industries are specific to Woodworking, the Electrical and Automotive industries and Material Fabrication contexts.
The components of CNC machines include a central processing unit, otherwise known as a Central Processing Unit, Input devices, Machine control panels, Programmable logic controllers, Servo-control units as well as an integrated Display Unit.
It should be important to note that the CNC tuning centre could potentially have a main and sub-spindle to ensure faster operation. This type of configuration is an ideal automated process for larger production runs.
There are a multitude of advantages associated with utilising the CNC machine such as increasing the production volume and improving the flexibility in manufacturing capabilities.
