CNC Lathe Machined Parts Buffalo – 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. 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 lot of parts that need to be produced
- You are under strict time restraints
- You require 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 turned machine parts; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—in which attention to detail is highly critical— may benefit the most. The pieces manufactured for these industries can range from simple gears to complex curved components and more. 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 Buffalo, NY, can do for you!
Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine
At Roberson Machine Company, we have both turning centers and lathes on our factory floor, which gives us the unique advantage to build 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 simpler machines to use in general.
CNC turning centers can have 3, 4, or 5-axes (including a Y-axis) in addition to multiple turrets and sub-spindles. They are usually slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures to keep coolant splashes and chips inside the machine. These types of machines may be able to provide more versatile capabilities and applications, such as 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 may come in both vertical and horizontal structures, with horizontal being commonly used for a number of reasons. In these types of applications, the spindle is horizontally-oriented and tools are mounted out of the side of the tool holder. Gravity causes the metal chips to fall to the bed below, which keeps the piece clean during cutting.
