Surface Finishes for CNC Turning
|Alodine||Alodine is a chemical used for metal surface treatment. It is most commonly used to create a protective coating on aluminum, but can also be used on other metals such as steel and brass.||Aluminum||Media Blasting, Tumbling, Type II Anodizing* Type III Anodizing*|
|Anodizing||Anodizing improves corrosion resistance and protects the metal surface. It's used in mechanical parts, aircraft, and automobile parts. Precision instruments also use anodizing for protection.||Aluminum||Media Blasting, Tumbling, Alodine*|
|Black Oxide||Black oxide is a specialized process that can be used to create a number of different finishes on metal surfaces. The most common use for black oxide is to create a blackened finish on steel, but it can also be used on other metals, including aluminum and brass.||Steel, Stainless Steel||Media Blasting, Tumbling, Passivation|
|Electroless Nickel Plating||Electroless nickel plating process is often used to improve the corrosion resistance or electrical conductivity of the metal, or to build up a thick enough layer to serve as a wear-resistant coating.||Aluminum, Steel, Stainless Steel||Media Blasting, Tumbling|
|Electropolishing||Electropolishing can be used to remove burrs, scratches, and other irregularities from the surface of a workpiece. The process can also be used to increase the surface area of a workpiece, which can improve its heat transfer or wettability properties.||Steel, Stainless Steel||-|
|Media Blasting||Media blasting is a process in which a high-pressure stream of media is used to clean or finishing surfaces. It is an effective way to remove paint, rust, and other debris from metal surfaces.||Aluminum, Steel, Stainless Steel, Brass, Bronze, Copper||All post processes except Electropolish and Powdercoat|
|Nickel Plating||Nickel plating is a process in which a layer of nickel is applied to the surface of another metal. The purpose of this process is to provide protection against corrosion and wear, as well as to give the metal a shiny appearance.||Aluminum, Steel, Stainless Steel||Media Blasting, Tumbling|
|Passivation||Passivation is the process of making a material more resistant to corrosion. It is accomplished by the formation of an oxide layer on the surface of the metal. This oxide layer prevents further oxidation of the metal, and it also provides a barrier to the diffusion of corrosive species into the metal.||Steel, Stainless Steel||Black Oxide, Electroless Nickel Plating, Zinc Plating, Tumbling, Media Blasting|
|Powder Coating||Powder coating is a dry powder that can be applied using electrostatic charge to create a smooth finish. Unlike liquid paints, powder coatings do not use solvents that work by evaporating the paint.||Aluminum, Steel, Stainless Steel||-|
|Tumbling||Tumbling is often used to deburr or remove sharp edges from metal parts. It can also be used to polish surfaces or add a decorative finish.||Aluminum, Steel, Stainless Steel, Brass, Bronze, Copper||All post processes except Electropolish and Powdercoat|
|Zinc Plating||Zinc plating is a process in which a thin layer of zinc is applied to a metal surface in order to protect it from corrosion. The zinc layer can be applied either by electroplating or hot-dip galvanizing.||Steel, Stainless Steel||Media Blasting, Tumbling, Passivation|
Precision Machining Tolerance
We follow ISO 2768 standards for CNC Machining.
|Limits for nominal size||Metals (ISO 2768- f)||Plastics (ISO 2768- m)|
|0.5mm* to 3mm||±0.05mm||±0.1mm|
|Over 3mm to 6mm||±0.05mm||±0.1mm|
|Over 6mm to 30mm||±0.1mm||±0.2mm|
|Over 30mm to 120mm||±0.15mm||±0.3mm|
|Over 120mm to 400mm||±0.2mm||±0.5mm|
|Over 400mm to 1000mm||±0.3mm||±0.8mm|
|Over 1000mm to 2000mm||±0.5mm||±1.2mm|
|Over 2000mm to 4000mm||-||±2mm|

Frequently Asked Questions
CNC turning is a manufacturing process that uses CNC machinery to turn cylindrical parts from metal or plastic. The process begins with a block of material, which is then cut into shape using a rotating cutter. The cutter is fed into the workpiece at a specific angle and depth, and the resulting chips are discharged from the other side.
There are three main types of CNC turning – automatic, semi-automatic and manual.
- Automatic Turning is the most common type of CNC turning. It uses a program to control the cutting tools, and the machine automatically moves the workpiece to the required position. This type of turning is ideal for producing high volumes of parts with tight tolerances.
- Semi-automatic Turning is similar to automatic turning, but the operator must manually load and unload the workpiece. This type of turning is less common than automatic turning, but it can be used to produce smaller quantities of parts with lower tolerances.
- Manual Turning is the oldest type of CNC turning. It requires a skilled operator to manually control the cutting tools and movement of the workpiece. This type of turning is best suited for low-volume production or prototyping.
The applications of CNC turning are vast and varied. In fact, there are so many applications for CNC turning that it would be impossible to list them all. However, some of the most common applications include the manufacturing of medical devices, automotive parts, and aerospace components.
There are many benefits of using CNC turning, which is why it is such a popular manufacturing process. Some of the benefits include:
- Increased accuracy – With CNC machining, the parts are cut to very precise specifications, ensuring that they fit perfectly together. This leads to a decrease in manufacturing defects and an overall improved product.
- Increased efficiency – CNC machining can be done much faster than traditional methods, resulting in increased efficiency and reduced production times.
- Increased consistency – Because the process is automated, CNC turning produces parts that are consistently accurate and of the same dimensions. This eliminates the need for time-consuming and costly hand-finishing processes.
- Increased flexibility – CNC machines can be programmed to manufacture a wide variety of parts, making them ideal for small batch runs and custom orders.
In CNC turning, a computer-controlled cutting tool is used to produce parts from solid materials such as metals and plastics. The process begins by loading a workpiece (the object that will be machined) into the machine. Next, the operator creates a toolpath or set of instructions that tells the machine how to cut the workpiece. The machine then follows these instructions to create the desired part.
