CNC turning

CNC means computer-aided numerical control. CNC turning is basically an automatic conversion of turning. In CNC turning, the movements of the spindle, cross slide and bed are controlled by input from a computer. The CNC thus enables automatic workpiece handling and positioning. In addition, it automatically changes the tools. CNC turning allows the turning operation to be carried out without operator intervention. CNC turning has greatly accelerated conventional turning operations and is now widely used in the manufacturing industry.
