What is CNC Turning?

Turning is a machining process in which a cutting tool, typically a non-rotary tool bit, describes a helix toolpath by moving more or less linearly while the workpiece rotates.  CNC turning uses computer programmed machinery to replicate CAD models from various metals and plastics.
