Turning Centers

A turning center is a lathe with a computer numerical control (CNC) that is used to make cylindrical parts by moving the cutting tool across a rotating workpiece to reduce the diameter of the workpiece to a specified dimension and produce a smooth part finish. The CNC can transmit and manage cylindrical transformations primarily used for turning and effectively control a live tooling spindle on the turret that functions as a rotary, contouring axis to perform a variety of milling and drilling operations.
