CNC Turning Machined Parts


CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Boise City, ID – 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 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 limits
  • You want free range of motion to make everything from straightforward to complex designs
  • You need each piece to conform to the same exacting specifications

All industries including commercial, automotive, and oil and energy can benefit from CNC turned machine parts; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—in which attention to detail is extremely critical— may benefit the most. The pieces created for these industries can range from simple rings to complex curved components and beyond. Examples include bellows, bars, tubes, shafts, knobs, pulleys, bushings, flanges, etc.

CNC turning can be used in many different ways — contact us to see what CNC turning in Boise City, ID, 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 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 generally simpler machines.

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 that keep coolant splashes and chips inside the machine. There are many versatile applications these types of machines offer, including turning, drilling, tapping, 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 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.
