CNC Turning Service
At Star Rapid, we provide you with high quality CNC turning services using our brand-new Haas ST-20Y turning mills imported from the United States. These CNC turning mills are hybrid machines, combining the best features of lathes and mills to provide true 4-axis machining for even greater efficiency and more complex geometries on your project.
When combined with our other CNC machining, low-volume manufacturing, prototyping and finishing services, our CNC turning service will get you great parts for up to 50% less than our competitors while maintaining the quality you expect.
What Is CNC Turning?
CNC turning involves holding the workpiece in a horizontally-mounted, adjustable spindle. As the workpiece rotates, various cutting tools are applied to the piece to create circular shapes and features like rings, grooves, slots, contours, radii, internal bores and threads. On our Haas turning mills, an extra axis of movement allows us to work perpendicular to the lathe spindle to make square faces or to bore holes. This opens up many new machining possibilities.
CNC turning is used for any rotationally symmetrical shape, to remove material quickly while leaving an excellent surface finish that sometimes requires no post-processing.
Why Choose CNC Turning?
CNC turning is the fastest way to remove large amounts of material on rounded stock. It’s a type of machining that is also ideal for larger production runs when coupled with an automatic bar feeder that provides an uninterrupted supply of raw material into the machine.
CNC turning is the only industrial process to choose when making production volumes of concentric shapes or threaded features. And, because of the rigid construction of a CNC lathe there is little vibration, which means CNC turning can offer high levels of dimensional accuracy with excellent surface finishes.
What Kind Of Materials Can Be CNC Turned?
While potentially any solid, stable material can be turned, we work with hard plastic and metals such as aluminum, many kinds of mild and stainless steel, titanium, magnesium, brass, copper and other alloys.
Note that some tool steel may be 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.
