CNC Lathe Machined Parts Albuquerque – Applications & Benefits
CNC turning is a process that “turns” the workpiece while metal is shaved away in a quick series of motions, allowing us to produce a large number of well-finished, identical components in a short period of time. A bar of metal is held in place by a “lathe,” which is one of the oldest manufacturing technologies in the world. It is then rotated at a high RPM while the single point cutting tool creates the designed end shape.
CNC turning may work best in these common applications:
- Your part has diameters or is cylindrical, tubular, or round in shape
- You have a lot of parts that need to be produced
- You are under strict time limits
- You require free range of motion to make everything from complex to straightforward designs
- You want each piece to conform to the same precise specifications
All industries including commercial, automotive, and oil and energy can benefit from CNC turning; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—where attention to detail is extremely important— may benefit the most. The products created for these industries can range from simple gears to complex curved components and beyond. Examples include bars, tubes, knobs, pulleys, bellows, flanges, shafts, bushings, etc.
A CNC turning machine can certainly be used in a variety of ways to meet your needs — contact us to see what CNC turning in Albuquerque, NM, can do for you!
Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine
At Roberson Machine Company, we utilize both turning centers and lathes in our facility, which gives us the unique advantage to build most parts you need; however, there are key differences between these types of machines:
Lathe machines have two axes (X and Z-axis), one spindle, and can be flat-bed type making them simpler machines to use in general.
CNC turning centers can have 3, 4, or 5-axes (including a Y-axis) as well as sub-spindles and multiple turrets. They are commonly slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures to keep the chips and any coolant splashing inside the machine. There are many versatile applications these types of machines offer, including turning, tapping, drilling, and milling. Also, because they are completely controlled by a computer, a turning center can move on all axes simultaneously and with great precision.
A turning center can come in both horizontal and vertical structures, with horizontal being the most common for a number of reasons. In these types of applications, a horizontally-oriented spindle allows gravity to make any metal chips fall into the bed below, which means the workpiece can be kept clean during the cutting process.
