A CNC turning machine is a highly useful tool for producing intricate custom parts and components using a lathe. The term “CNC turning”, however, is often used interchangeably by some people with “CNC milling”. To be clear, they are two different processes: milling uses rotating multipoint cutting tools to remove material from a workpiece that is fed the opposite direction of the cutting tool’s rotation; turning employs single-point cutting tools that move in a linear motion along the surface of the rotating workpiece. At Excell Solutions in North Billerica, MA we specialize in both processes. 

Here are the main features of a CNC turning machine

  • Employs single-point cutting tools
  • Rotates the workpiece
  • Cutting tool is fed along the surface of the workpiece
  • Removes material from the workpiece
  • Produces round or cylindrical part 

At Excell Solutions, our machinists are highly experienced at using modern computer technology and a Montpelier, Vermont CNC turning machine to produce intricate components accurate to the specifications of the most complex designs, producing incredibly precise pieces down to the minutest details. 

Our CNC turning machine for Montpelier, Vermont secures and rotates the stock, or raw material, being machined along a dual-axis of movement at high speeds, while a single-point cutting or boring tool shapes the material, precisely producing the specified component. The design of the turning tool varies based on the particular application, with tools available for roughing, finishing, facing, threading, forming, undercutting, parting, and grooving applications. The lathe is controlled by computer programs; ensuring meticulously-exact components are produced, and can also be reproduced at virtually any desired volume.

American Science and Engineering Inc.
{Over the last two months, American Science and Engineering has had several programs that required very quick turnaround on many parts. Excell Solutions went above and beyond what we would normally expect from a supplier to ensure our new product development success. Many of these parts were delivered the same day, with most of the more complex parts delivered within a week. It is because your dedication and willingness to do the impossible that we are able to stay on schedule and meet the demanding timelines that we are tasked with. Everyone at American Science and Engineering appreciates your efforts.
{I want to say THANK YOU so very much that just doesn’t express the gratitude I want to convey to you and your team over the past few months. I know since coming on board with Dakota Systems things have been less than easy, shall I say. As you were working over the holiday weekend, my customers as well as myself were also working to get the tools fabricated for test. The work that your team has accomplished in an outstanding & amazing feat. My customer is extremely pleased with your work and more importantly grateful for the time and effort you have put in to launch these 2 systems.

{I just want to say thanks to you, Steve and the great crew at Excell Solutions for your help this past weekend. The turnaround from receiving the PO at 1:33 on Friday and having parts machined and plated in my office at 1:33 on Monday was remarkable. It is a great feeling to know that I can count on a first class organization to pull it all together and have a “does whatever it takes” attitude to help out a customer when all seems hopeless. That level of service is what makes companies like Excell Solutions world class and keeps customers coming back. Again, thanks to the Excell Crew for a job well done.
{I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your help during our startup phase. We have learned heavily on you and your team and you have not disappointed us even on the request that were, frankly, not planned. You have allowed us to be opportunistic and that is what counts when you are a small fish in a big pond. In two weeks we have our big showing and we could not have ready without your services. Please let your team know that we appreciate their efforts, and we look forward to a long prosperous relationship.
