What is CNC Turn / Milling?
Turn / Milling is a hybrid CNC (Computer Numerical Control) subtractive manufacturing machining technology that combines turning and milling operations into one machine, which combines a lathe’s chucks and spindles with the capabilities and milling power of a machining center.
When to use CNC Turn / Milling?
This process is ideal for parts that have both turning and milling steps, high part volume, complex geometries requiring multi-axis machining and tight tolerances.
With its multi-tasking capabilities, it requires only one machine set up and produces parts with faster cycle times when compared to utilizing a separate lathe and milling machine. Another advantage is eliminating multiple set-ups which can also introduce tolerance error.
