CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Arlington, TX – Benefits & Applications

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. Using a manufacturing technology that dates back to the Egyptians called a “lathe,” a bar of material is held on a chuck that rotates at a high RPM while a single-point tool cuts into it to create the desired end shape.

CNC turning may work best in these common applications:

  • Your part has diameters or is round, tubular, or cylindrical in shape
  • You have a large volume of parts
  • You have strict time limits
  • You need free range of motion to make everything from complex to straightforward designs
  • You want each piece to conform to the same exacting specifications

All industries including automotive, commercial, and oil and energy can benefit from CNC turning; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—where precision is extremely important— may benefit the most. The pieces created for these industries can range from simple gears to complex curved components and beyond. Examples include bellows, bars, tubes, shafts, knobs, pulleys, bushings, flanges, 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 Arlington, TX, can do for you!


Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine

At Roberson Machine Company, we have both turning centers and lathes in our facility, which gives us the capability to build most of the components you need; however, there are distinct 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 usually slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures to keep the chips and any coolant splashing inside the machine. These types of machines may be able to provide more versatile capabilities and applications, such as turning, tapping, drilling, and milling. Plus, due to the fact that they are completely controlled by a computer, the CNC turning center is able to have great precision when moving on all axes at once.

A turning center can come in both vertical and horizontal structures, with horizontal being commonly used for a number of reasons. For example, 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.
