Turning is a machining process in which a non-rotary cutting tool is moving linearly while the workpiece rotates. The cutting tool is moving with approximately 6.000 revolutions per minute relative to the workpiece .
The workpiece may consist of a full lenght of material that in a “pass or barfeeder” is clamped and absorbed by the turning machine during the process. So materials can be cut-off on measure in order to making large batches possible.
Several of our turning machines are equipped with “powered” tools which makes it also possible to drill, thread tap and mill.
CNC turning machines have a full computerized tool for controlling the coordination between workpiece and tools. Diametal also has “Teach-in” turning machines which can be controlled manually.
The machine operators are still writing the programms on the machine or by using a CAD-CAM system.
Diametal has 8 CNC-turning machines which offer the possiblity to choose the most efficient machine for manufacturing parts depending on the size of the workpiece or the operations that are required.
Maximum range of diameter up to 600 mm.
