What’s the difference between CNC turning services and CNC boring services?

CNC turning services and CNC boring are effectively the same process, but applied in a different way. Both of these processes involve an aluminium component being rotated at speed around a central shaft. A single-point cutting tool is then used to shave away metal at varying depths, usually producing tubes, cylinders, or conical-shaped components.

When we talk about CNC turning services, the cutting tool is situated on the outside of the component. CNC boring involves this same tool being used to hollow out a space inside the component. So, in short: turning shapes the outside of the component, boring creates a cavity within it.
