Precision turning

Manufacturing mechanical components using both fixed-head and Swiss turning CNC lathes


Valtecne is equipped to provide precision turning for highly complex mechanical components


In the Valtecne turning department it is possible to carry out any kind of mechanical CNC turning as required by the different industrial fields for which they are destined.

Product external modifications, through traditional turning techniques, in order to obtain cones, roundings or chiselled sides, as well as incorporating tapers, grooves, truncations and threading.

Product internal modifications in order to carry out traditional drilling, deep drilling, cross drilling, reaming, boring and tapping.

The production is ongoing over the course of three daily shifts, guaranteeing the customer a speedy production deadline.

Tornitura CNC - Valtecne
Fixed-head and Swiss turning CNC lathes

The company has at its disposal several numerically controlled lathes, with both fixed (horizontal and vertical) and sliding heads. They can be used to machine raw parts (die-casting, forged materials and so on), or starting from a solid block.

CAM Programming to optimize the efficiency of the production line

When using a Swiss lathe the company deploys CAM Esprit, which enables us to program the machines pre-production, optimizing setup times and pre-emptively confirming the tool path.

Turning metals

When using vertical lathes it is possible to work materials up to 1000mm in length and 800mm in diameter. Swiss lathes have a bar passage size up to 38mm.

The turning department can work with various materials, ranging from traditional grey or spheroidal cast iron to more refined materials such as specialized alloy steel and titanium.

Precision mechanical components made under contract for third parties

The pieces produced in our workshop are used in multiple fields, ranging from components for transmission systems (eg. hubs, casings, conical gears) to prototypes and small batches of parts for the automotive industry.

Our Swiss lathes are principally used to produce more geometrically complex mechanical components for the medical devices sector.
