The article deals with the optimization of an alternative solution for the production of a needle-shaped component. Nowadays, the classic milling machine, drill, shaping machine, and two-axis numerical control (NC) lathe are still used for the production of the aforementioned component. An NC program for the left and right components of the CTX alpha 500 multi-axis turning center has been designed. In the article, the optimized technology for the production of the needle and its contribution to the quality, economy, and efficiency of machining should be evaluated per year per 1000 pieces. At the same time, cost reductions and quality of component production should be achieved.
