CNC Turning


The CNC turning competition prepares you for industry by putting you in the role of the CNC machinist.

Competitors will work to a set brief and use CNC machine tools to cut, drill, shape and finish products and components used in engineering and manufacturing.

Competitors will be required to download the project brief and submit an initial piece for judging, demonstrating their ability to:

  • Square and true components
  • Manually measure tool offsets
  • Place tools in the machine
  • Use correct work holding (chucks and vices)
  • Use inspection equipment
  • Write a CNC programme


This competition is only run at WorldSkills UK level.
