CNC Turning Services
CNC turning services at ABF. With access to a network of over 3,000 shops with CNC lathes and turning centers, ABF provides you with the capacity and capabilities your project needs, while also delivering the most competitive pricing and lead times. ABF’s machine learning-trained technology platform also provides instant manufacturability feedback to ensure that your part is optimized for the CNC turning process and fits the requirements you need. Our on-demand manufacturing platform can deliver high-quality metal or plastic turned parts for rapid prototyping or low-to-high volume production runs.
Advantages of CNC Turning Services
Because you can programme a CNC turning services or other machine to perform a complex series of actions, you can often step away while the machine gets to work. This can include out-of-hours automated machining in certain set-ups, hugely increasing your productivity and rate of output. This is particularly true for precision engineers operating several CNC turning services such as Oracle Precision.
Because the use of a CNC almost eliminates human error, CNC turning services machines are highly consistent and accurate in the work they produce, providing clients with uniform and faultless products. This is what makes CNC turning services machining so crucial for areas where quality is critical, as the level of reliability and quality in the work produced is much higher.
CNC turning services machines more than make up for their initial costs with a high rate of output and lower number of mistakes in resulting components. Operators also require less training to operate a CNC turning machine and can learn how to use the machine in a virtual environment, eliminating the need for training workpieces. As these machines become more popular and widespread, their cost will continue to drop.
CNC turning services machines can be reprogrammed in a short period of time to produce a completely new product, making them ideal for short or long production runs. You can change programming without it being time-consuming or too costly.
Applications for CNC Turning Services
Because CNC turning services can be applied to virtually any material, it is perfect for rapid tooling, i.e., creating fixtures or molds.
High-quality finish, vast material options and precise tolerances have made CNC turning services a favorable technology for end-use parts.
CNC Turning Services Finishes
The finish option with the quickest turnaround. Parts are left with visible tool marks and potentially sharp edges and burrs, which can be removed upon request. Surface finish is comparable to 125 uin Ra finish.
The part surface is left with a smooth, matte appearance.
Anodized (Type II Or Type III)
Type II creates a corrosion-resistant finish. Parts can be anodized in different colors—clear, black, red, and gold are most common—and is usually associated with aluminum. Type III is thicker and creates a wear-resistant layer in addition to the corrosion resistance seen with Type II.
This is a process where powdered paint is sprayed onto a part which is then baked in an oven. This creates a strong, wear- and corrosion-resistant layer that is more durable than standard painting methods. A wide variety of colors are available to create the desired aesthetic.

Industries that use CNC Turning Services
Adoption of CNC turning services machining can improve every aspect of the manufacturing process; however, certain industries derive very specific benefits from its implementation.
