Turning

Turning machines, or lathes, are just one of the many machining capabilities that allow us to create the highest quality parts for every project.

We offer a wide variety of turning centers ranging from 1-inch to 15-feet in diameter, 10-feet under-the-rail (CNC). Petersen Inc. machines parts for many highly-specialized industries with exact part specifications, and can meet the needs of these companies with the use of turning centers, lathes and other machines at all facilities.
