CNC lathe roughing cycle is a process used in CNC lathes to remove large amounts of material from a workpiece quickly and efficiently. The cycle involves cutting a larger amount of material in one pass than a finishing operation would. This cycle is often used as the first step in machining a workpiece to rough shape, followed by one or more finishing cycles to achieve the final dimensions and surface finish.
