Quality parts and components with tight tolerances are required in numerous industries for varying applications. These products can only be achieved with quality manufacturing from reputable companies like Grand Valley Mfg. Co. 

Fortunately, we offer CNC turning, where we can efficiently produce parts according to our customer’s specifications and requirements. Our in-house facility is equipped with cutting-edge technology, such as a CNC lathes, where we can accurately and efficiently machine a large spectrum of materials and part configurations. 

We employ experienced machinists who understand the importance of precision and accuracy so that our products meet or exceed customer expectations. With our quality control procedures in place, we can guarantee superior parts and components free from defects and other imperfections.

The Basics of CNC Turning

CNC turning is a subtractive machining process where a CNC or computer numerical control is utilized for more refined precision in the finished product. The CNC Work Center is pre-programmed with software where the 3D models of the part specifications are stored. The “programs” with then be uploaded into the CNC Machine and  will control the tools to cut the material according to the specifications.

A chuck holds the workpiece or raw material, and the cutting tool is placed against the revolving workpiece while removing excess material carefully. It’s done with a CNC turning center or lathe to achieve the desired shape or form. It’s the ideal process for highly-precise components and higher volume project needs.

Other benefits of CNC turning:

  • Zero defects with better accuracy for the finished product
  • Efficient production with fast results
  • Consistent, repeatable processses
  • Cost-effective
  • Efficient use of material

These features make it a reliable method that allows you to maximize its potential. We can achieve the parts you need through our reliable CNC turning services and engineers with background knowledge in many industries, allowing us to deliver results that positively impact your project or program.

Common Parts Achieved through CNC Turning

It’s worth noting that CNC turning is also employed as a secondary process to refine a product further. Due to its high tolerances and surface finishes, it adds a precision feature to a part where the basic shape is already formed.

Some examples of the products we can achieve are as follows:

  • Shipshafts
  • Locomotive axles
  • Hydraulic Rods and Cylinders
  • Down-hole Tooling 
  • Control Rods
  • Power Generation shafts
  • Guide Bearings
