CNC Machining Material Guide
As the machined or deburring
The machined or deburring finish is the standard finish where unwanted attach chips are removed with deburring tools, and sharp edges are chamfered to smooth the surface (3.2 μm).
Bead blasting produces a matte texture, removing all the marks of machining tools. It applies to ABS, Aluminum, Brass, Stainless Steel, and Steel parts.
Anodizing involves adding an aluminum oxide coating to aluminum and its alloys. The layers, which come in various colors, increase strength and shield the surface from corrosion.
Powder coating is the electrostatically applying of dry powder to the surface. It produces a thin layer providing excellent resistance to wear, corrosion, and abrasion.
Physical rubbing of a metal surface to create a shiny surface is called a polishing surface finish. It increases the reflectivity and does not affect the dimensional stability of parts.
Brushing is achieved by applying an abrasive brush to the metal surface, which produces a unidirectional satin finish. And it is not recommended for highly corrosive materials.
Smooth machining is done by controlling the machining process, such as feed rate & cutting speed. It minimizes the tool marks and risk of corrosion.
Black oxide finish reduces surface reflectivity and offers mild corrosion protection. It involves adding a thin layer of magnetite to the surface.
Electro-less Nickel Plating
A thin layer of Nickel is created on the surface from a nickel-containing solution without electrolysis. Electro-less nickel plating provides a shiny appearance, excellent hardness, abrasive, wear, and corrosion-resistance to the substrate material.
Provides excellent corrosion resistance property to the aluminum parts with greenish-gold color. It is the low-cost and quick surface finishing approach.
Electroplating increases the hardness of the steel &aluminum parts. It offers excellent corrosion, wears, and abrasion resistance.
Make the parts super resistive to corrosion. It enhances mechanical strength, hardness, wear resistance, lubricity, and ductility. Nickel plating is applicable in different materials, including Steel, aluminum, copper, and brass.
Enhance the appearance and functionality of the parts. After Passivation, parts of Steel and its alloys become super resistive from corrosion.
Yellow Chromate conversion coating
A shiny appearance with goldish color provides excellent corrosion resistance. It is applied on the surface of aluminum, magnesium, and their alloys. A layer of chromate also enhances the conductivity of parts
PTFE (Teflon) Coating
The Teflon layer on the parts offers excellent corrosion resistance, water resistance, and non-stickiness with a non-reactive surface.
The higher-precision machines produce delicate machining surfaces by utilizing sharper tools and regulating feed rate and cutting speed. Surface roughness up to Ra 0.8 μm can be maintained with smooth machining.
Provides excellent corrosion, wear, and abrasion resistance. Laser Cladding is also effective for treating minor surface imperfections such as cavities, tiny cracks, and rust damage.
Provides a random, non-linear texture with a shiny, high gloss finish. However, it might be unable to create sharp corners and pockets

What is CNC Turning?
CNC turning is a fully computer-controlled manufacturing process in which a round workpiece spins and a tool is fed into it. During the turning process, material from the work piece’s outer surface is removed by feeding it into the tool to create the desired shape. The computer program ultimately dictates the removal process.
The CNC turning process can work in both axes of rotation (horizontal and vertical). Turning can machine a wide range of material bars, from Nylon to Titanium, brass, and steel, with the help of drilling, boring, reaming, grooving, threading, knurling, and taper turning according to CAD and input instructions.
If you are looking to produce profiles with axial symmetry, like cones, cylinders, disks, or a combination of those shapes, CNC turning is definitely for you.
Working Principle of CNC Turning
The working principle of CNC turning is executing computer code on a CAD file to remove material from the outer surface of the work bar to achieve the desired shape. The CNC turning process is finished in four major steps, creating a digital representation (CAD), generating machining code from CAD files, CNC lathe setup, and manufacturing turned parts from computer input instructions.
The raw material bar is first attached to the chuck, which begins to rotate following the input speed. Following this, the cutting tool is started to feed the material so that the desired shape can be produced. The turning tools are available in various speeds and sizes to create a particular shape from the workpiece. Even though the CNC turning process is numerically controlled, manual supervision is still required to guarantee precise shape and tight tolerance.
CNC turning can work with cylinder-shaped, square-shaped, or hexagonal-shaped objects. However, the most typical shape is the cylindrical one.
Different types of CNC Turning
While there are many different CNC turning processes, some of the most common ones include taper turning, step turning, contour turning, grooving, parting, threading, and more. The primary distinction between these turning processes is how the material is fed into the various turning tools.
Taper turning is gradually reducing or increasing the diameter of a cylindrical workpiece to produce a conical surface. In contrast, a step-up turning involves a sudden increase or decrease of the diameter. The cutting tool axially follows a trajectory with a predefined geometry when performing a contour turning operation.
A narrow cut called a “groove” is made around the workpiece’s cylindrical surface within the specific segment during the grooving. The parting process looks like grooving, but the cutting tool reaches the part’s axis and cuts off a section.
In the turning process known as threading, a tool is moved along the side of a cylindrical workpiece to create continuous helical grooves. The boring is related to internal turning, increasing the hole diameter’s accuracy, where a pre-formed hole is enlarged through this process.

What's the lowest thickness for the turning process I can use in my design to avoid warpage?
We recommend a minimum thickness of 0.8 mm for metal and 1.5 mm for plastic. The value, however, is heavily dependent on the size of the parts to be manufactured. For instance, you might need to lower the minimum thickness limit for large parts and raise it for much more minor parts to prevent warpage.
