CNC turning is a form of machining where the work piece rotates while the tool moves in different axes. It is used to produce rotating parts.
The importance of driven tools and counter spindles
The use of driven tools means that the lathe can perform not only turning, but also other machining operations such as drilling, milling or slotting. All this in a single material clamping, which significantly reduces production time and increases overall productivity.

Counter-spindle then refers to the function of the lathe that allows machining from the other side of the component without having to switch or reposition it. This reduces the risk of errors caused by re-clamping and increases the accuracy of the final products.

The role of the bar feeder
The bar feeder is another key component in modern CNC lathes. Its role is to automatically feed material into the machine, minimising the need for manual labour and making the entire production process more efficient. The bar feeder is invaluable in batch production where fast and continuous machining of components is required.

What are the benefits of integrated CNC turning?
An integrated approach to CNC turning, where all of the above technologies are combined, brings a number of benefits to manufacturers:

Increased production: reducing the need for a second material clamping and integrating multiple operations into a single clamping means faster production.
Accuracy and quality: counter spindles and automation ensure greater accuracy and consistency in the parts produced.
Cost reduction: Less material waste and reduced labour intensity lead to lower production costs.
