    How Our CNC Turning Process Works

    CNC turning requires several years of intense training to master. The method uses many different types of machines and tools to create precise dimensions, designs, and/or features on a workpiece. Meanwhile, expert machinists work with various technologies to render functional parts and/or prototypes based on CAD/CAM specifications.

    We utilize top-notch quick turn CNC machining techniques and advanced instruments to render variable tolerances on nearly any material. We then apply stringent, relevant standards to ensure compliance and conformity. But first, we consult with the customer to determine their goals and timeline.

    CNC turning involves holding materials in a chuck to be rotated. The workpiece is then “pressed” by various cutting tools to reveal the desired shape, size, or detail. However, some projects require both turning and milling, so that’s why Pioneer Cuts operates as a one-stop machining shop. Components that use both services are often more intricate and conforming than those that don’t.

    Our CNC turning centers are fortified by diligent machinists who have plenty of experience with live tooling. This allows us to produce a more extensive range of features on any given component, but it also means we can handle complex blueprints without delay. Furthermore, our team stays focused on the goal so you can stay focused on your schedule.

    Turning VS Milling

    Contrary to popular belief, CNC turning and milling are not the same thing. The common misconception is that these two terms are interchangeable, but there’s a clear distinction between them both.

    Turning is the process of using a cutting agent to define a helix toolpath into a rotating workpiece using a stationary tool. With enough RPM and some precision handling, the workpiece ends up rendering the customer’s desired form or function.

    Milling is just the opposite. It involves a stationary workpiece that gets manipulated by a moving cutting agent. This technique offers extreme versatility but is not appropriate for all projects. So, although there’s some overlap, it’s important not to get the two methods confused.
