CNC Turning

Triple Metal manufactures close tolerance turned parts from metals and plastics in both prototype and volume production quantities.

Our CNC turning centers are equipped with sub-spindles, live tooling, Y-axis functions for milling and off-center capabilities. Combined with bar feeder systems TMP produces cost effective, quality parts for our customer’s varied requirements.

Examples of turned parts include valves, couplings, fittings, customer fasteners, spacers, washers, gasket retainers, tubing and more.


Operations on a CNC Lathe to achieve the final part requirements include:

  • Drilling
  • Parting
  • Facing
  • Grooving
  • Boring
  • Reaming
  • Tapping
  • Threading
  • Knurling
  • Milling

The turning process differs from milling as it is generally the part that rotates while the tool remains stationary which is why most turned parts are commonly circular or cylindrical in shape.  Please see our gallery of CNC turned parts for examples.
