CNC Turning Components

We have a range of CNC Turning Centres, capable of extremely fast cycle times, and superb accuracy, +/- 0.002mm (or +/- 0.00008") is regularly machined. We also have turning centres with live tooling (milling and drilling) capabilities and "C" axis.

We have, in the last 18 months, installed two Star Swiss-Type Sliding Head machines (www.stargb.com) providing 7 and 8 axis machining for one-hit machining of incredibly complex parts in lightening-fast cycle times enabling us to provide extremely competitive pricing.

CNC Turning Centre Capacities

  • Diameters from 0.5mm to 38mm can be used for bar work, utilising our magazine fed barfeed units.
  • Chucking work up to 175mm in Diameter can be machined on our turning centres, larger on our manual machines (see "Manual Machining/Toolroom" page).
  • Superb accuracy from both our Star Swiss Sliding Head Machines and also Hardinge CNC Turning Centres - single micron accuracy is achieved on a regular basis on all types of materials and all sizes of production run.
  • All materials machined, from Plastics to Tool Steels, including Ceramics and "filled" Plastics.
  • Fine tolerance high quality Stainless Steel components a speciality.
  • Live tooling capability on Turning Centres, 8-10 Axis machining on Star Swiss Sliding Head Machines.
