About CNC Turning
When engineers want to know if a specific part of a design is going to work, they look to CNC Turning. The finished article is used to create pieces of machinery that are often highly-complex. A typical car has around 10,000 parts alone.
A trained operator will be familiar with many types of materials, ensuring the dimensions of the finished piece exactly match the design specifications
The ChallengeCompetitors are required to:
- Prepare part programs for components to be machined on the CNC lathe through the machine control unit and/or Computer Aided Machining software (CAM)
- Set up and operate CNC lathe to produce precision components to dimensional accuracy of 0.01mm and obtain surface roughness of up to 0.8 micron
- Technical Description will be updated. For previous version click here.
