CNC METAL TURNING
Metal turning is a form of machining in which a cutting tool removes and reduces pieces of metal to the desired dimensions.
HOW IS METAL TURNING DONE?
The piece of metal to be turned, called the workpiece, is clamped to the lathe chuck for rotation at high speeds. The lathe’s cutting tool cuts into the rotating workpiece and cuts the metal to the desired shape. Turning produces symmetrical parts such as grooves, holes, threads, and tapers.
CNC TURNING AT GRIFFING
We specialise in the machining of stainless steel, but we also machine other steels, steels in improved condition, non-ferrous metals and engineering plastics.
State-of-the-art lathes with driven tools (supported by CAD/CAM technology) offer fast and high quality machining of workpieces up to the following nominal dimensions:
- Bar machining up to Ø65 mm
- Bulk machining up to Ø400 mm
- Up to a length of 500 mm
Our equipment consists of 16 modern CNC machines, 10 of which are CNC lathes manufactured by Index, Emco, Spiner, Pinacho, Yang and Jinn-Fa. These are modern and high performance machines that enable the machining of large volumes.
