CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Atlanta, GA – Applications & Benefits
CNC turning is when a workpiece is “turned” at a high speed while metal is shaved away quickly which, in turn, allows our team to manufacture thousands of identical, well-finished parts in a relatively short amount 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 works best in these applications:
- Your part has diameters or is cylindrical, round, or tubular in shape
- You have a large volume of parts
- You are under strict time restraints
- You require free range of motion to make everything from straightforward to complex designs
- You need each piece to conform to the same precise specifications
All industries including automotive, commercial, and oil and energy can benefit from CNC turned machine parts; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—where precision is highly important— may benefit the most. The products manufactured for these industries can range from simple rings to complex curved components and beyond. Examples include bars, tubes, knobs, pulleys, bellows, flanges, shafts, bushings, etc.
CNC turning can be used in many different ways — contact us to see what CNC turning in Atlanta, GA, can do for you!
Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine
At Roberson Machine Company, we utilize both lathes and turning centers in our facility, which gives us the capability to create most parts you need; however, there are distinct differences between these CNC machining products:
Lathe machines have two axes (X and Z-axis), one spindle, and may be flat-bed type making them generally simpler machines.
CNC turning centers can have 3, 4, or 5-axes (including a Y-axis) in addition to sub-spindles and multiple turrets. They are usually slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures to keep coolant splashes and chips inside the machine. There are many versatile applications these types of machines offer, including 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 horizontal and vertical structures, with horizontal being commonly used 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.
