CNC turning is a manufacturing process in which bars or billets of material are held in a chuck and rotated while a tool is fed to the piece to remove material to create the desired shape.

A turret with tooling attached is programmed to move to the bar of raw material and remove material to create the programmed result. This is also called “subtraction machining” since it involves material removal. If the centre has both turning and milling capabilities, the rotation can be stopped to allow for milling out of other shapes.

The starting material, though usual round, can be other shapes such as squares or hexagons. Depending on the bar feeder, the bar length can vary. This affects how much handling is required for volume jobs. CNC lathes or turning centers have tooling mounted on a turret which is computer-controlled.

The more tools that that the turret can hold, the more options are available for complexities on the part. Some CNC turning centers have one spindle, allowing work to be done all from one side, while other turning centers, such as the one shown above, have two spindles, a main and sub-spindle.

A part can be partially machined on the main spindle, moved to the sub-spindle and have additional work done to the other side this configuration.

The CNC turning machine can execute exact measurements and eliminate human mistakes using CAD or CAM files. Shine experts can deliver incredibly high accuracy using cutting-edge machinery, whether to produce prototypes or the completion of the entire production cycle. Every cut is precise since the machine being used is programmed. In other words, the final piece in the production run is identical to the first piece.


Our turning centres come in various sizes to accommodate your applications’ flexibility. The adjustment is rather easy because this machine’s tasks are preprogramed. The operator can finish your component by making the necessary programming adjustments to your CAM program or even build something entirely different. Therefore, you can always rely on Shine Precision’s services if you need many unique parts, or the same parts more than once.


Shine Precision adheres to strict safety rules and regulations to guarantee complete safety. Since the turning machine is automatic, less labour is required because the operator is only there to monitor the machine. Likewise, the lathe body employs fully enclosed or semi-enclosed protective devices to avoid flying particles from the processed item and lessen harm to the crew.


There is a lower chance of error when tasks specified by programming are carried out on CNC lathes or turning centres. As a result, this machine can finish production more quickly without sacrificing the final output quality. Finally, you can receive the necessary components faster than with other options.
