NRL’s Turning Department is home to several CNC lathes. Some of our lathes are equipped with bar feeding, tail stocks, and live tooling options. We also have full 7-axis turning capabilities. Similarly to our mills, our lathes have coolant cooling systems as well. One lathe does not have a coolant cooling system because it is strictly used for wooden parts, so it is kept dry at all times. However, this lathe is equipped with its own vacuuming system that collects saw dust and debris.
Please see our facilities list (.pdf), for further details.
