CNC turning is a subtractive manufacturing process that uses cutting tools to remove some material from the outside of the material. As the workpiece rotates, excess debris is shaved off until the final product is finished with the ideal design and size. The material of CNC turning always is cylindrical or round.

Straight turning

Straight turning uses cutting tools to reduce the diameter of a workpiece uniformly. This process is designed to machine the materials to a specified thickness. It is also called rough turning and requires additional machining to achieve the final accuracy.


This operation involves introducing a jagged, angled, or criss-crossing cutting pattern into the surface of the workpiece. The process typically introduces a firm grip as the pattern enhances friction. It is also suitable for making bolts and nuts for threaded holes. It is worth noting that this operation may require specially designed knurling tools.


Splitting is a machining technique that uses a single-point cutting tool to create a deep groove in a material, removing its internal components. Then we can get the final part or a part of the prototype.

Taper turning

Taper turning refers to reducing the diameter of the material from one end to the other. The angular movement between the material and the cutting tool reduces the workpiece. As with most CNC turning processes, the final product is cylindrical.

Thread processing

Threading is another CNC turning process. The cutting tool moves along the side of the material to cut threads into the external components of the part. Threads are spiral grooves with a specific length and spacing.


It creates a groove in the workpiece. It involves the action of a sharp tip on the material, cutting at the same width as the cutting tool. By using a variety of cutting tools, wider-diameter grooves can be machined.

Suitable materials for CNC turning parts

CNC turning is a multifunctional processing, most metal and plastic materials are suitable for CNC turning parts:
