CNC Turning Service Working Principle

Automation is one of the must-have components of the work of almost all industries, particularly in those areas where minimal to no human intervention is required. Better explained, the automation (so-called automatic control) represents the use of different control systems for operating equipment, like manufacturing machinery, switching in telephone networks, aircraft/ships steering and stabilization, and countless other applications.

The 21st century automation reflects a state-of-the-art technology that applies three main types of systems: electronic, mechanical and computer-based systems that are crucial for operating and controlling the production.

CNC Explained

The simplest definition of the computer numerical control (CNC) is that it is a machine controlled by a computer. The outer appearance of the CNC turning machine is quite similar to the external appearance of an NC machine. Tutor Keyboard, Computer Keyboard or tape can be used as an input media for a CNC turning machine.

CNC Working Principle

CNC machines feature two distinct controls. The first control is the CNC controller that is in charge of the function of diagnostics machine actuation and program decoding interpolation. The second control is the PLC – programmable logic controller, which is responsible for the turret operation, coolant on off and spindle on off.

There are 8 different types of CNC machine tools:

  • CNC Milling Machines
  • CNC Turning Centers
  • CNC Lathe
  • CNC Horizontal Machining Centers
  • CNC Vertical Machining Centers
  • CNC Electrical Discharge Machine
  • CNC Grinding Machine
  • CNC Wire Cut EDM

CNC Turning Introduction

Now, let’s delve into the CNC turning introduction. The CNC turning service is in fact, a machine capable of performing a variety of different turning/related operations in one set up under the CNC system.

The CNC turning center is provided with a slant bed that allows better view of the machining plane and easier placement of different devices involved in the machine area (zone). The CNC turning center features several important controllable components, such as:

  • Automatic Tool Changer (ATC)
  • Spindle Rotation
  • Work Piece Clamping Device
  • Feed Drive

A quality and reliable CNC turning service is what every serious business should implement in its work. The automation itself is a very important part of the chain of essentials required for the progress, thus the profitability of the business.
