Custom Machining Tools & Dies for Aerospace
Service Detail from South Bend Form Tool Co., Inc.
South Bend Form Tool's CNC turning center is a (Computer Numerically Controlled) machining process which is used for shaping any solid material while it spins on a fixed axis. A turning center is used to remove material to achieve rotational symmetry, and can be done on both inside and or outside surfaces of the part as required, while a cutting tool is traversed along its two axes. The cutting tools that are used in this automated process can be changed out automatically during the shaping of the part, to achieve the required depths and dimensions for the part. CNC turning centers are said to deliver repeated finished components at a faster production rate with optimum manufacturing accuracy. The automation of the CNC turning has a higher level of dimensional control and tolerance in every piece, along with part consistency or uniformity. Decreasing cycle times for all components produced in this method. The turning process can also be done manually, but cycle times and repeatability of will become the variables.
