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 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.

Advantages of CNC Turning

CNC lathes remove a lot of material quickly. And when using fine cutting tools such as our Guhring cutters, the surface finish is excellent and doesn’t need any post-finishing. Turning is really the only practical way to make internal and external threads, long bores, tapers, ring grooves, and many other features that are essentially round in cross-section. Some of these same features can also be made on a CNC mill, but this would be slower and is not optimized for maximum efficiency.
