A Deep Dive into CNC Lathe Turning Operations

CNC lathe turning operations involve the use of computer numerical control (CNC) machines to shape cylindrical workpieces by rotating them against a cutting tool. This process is widely used in manufacturing to produce a variety of components, ranging from simple shafts and pins to complex aerospace parts and medical implants. The process begins with the setup of the workpiece on the lathe machine. The workpiece, typically made of metal or plastic, is mounted securely in the lathe chuck or collet. […]
