What is CNC turning?
CNC turning machines also called live tooling lathes, are ideal for cutting any symmetrical cylindrical or spherical parts. Characteristically, a lathe spins a workpiece on a vertical or horizontal axis while a fixed shaping instrument moves around it on a more or less linear path. The act of cutting a workpiece on a CNC lathe is called turning. CNC lathes are extensively used because they can produce parts at a much higher rate and a lower cost per unit than CNC mills. This is especially relevant for larger volumes.
CNC turning in numbers
It is faster than traditional method of injection molding. The process is automated hence required less tooling and manpower.
CNC turning machines are so efficient that they don’t produce much material waste.
CNC turning machines are built for precise manufacturing and repeatability, which makes them perfect for rapid prototyping, and low-to-high volume production runs.

Frequently Asked Questions
Prices are based on the structure of the part, order volume, materials used and manufacturing process.
We normally can convert all formats. However, we prefer STP and STEP files.
Please email us at [email protected] with your material requirement. We can check with our certified suppliers.
We can manufacture in 2-7 days depending on the size of the object. The larger it is, the longer it takes to manufacture. The volume parts also matter. Cleaning and polishing also add production time. Every part is cleaned and polished so you only get the best result every single time.
The best way to have an estimation is to email us the files/pictures to review at [email protected]
Yes, we can ship anywhere around the globe.
