CNC Lathe Machined Parts Charlotte – 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, round, or tubular in shape
  • You have a lot of parts that need to be produced
  • You have strict time restraints
  • You require free range of motion to make everything from complex to straightforward designs
  • You need 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 products manufactured 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 Charlotte, NC, can do for you!


Lathe Machine vs. Turning Center

At Roberson Machine Company, we utilize both turning centers and lathes on our factory floor, which gives us the capability to create most of the components you need; however, there are key differences between these types of machines:

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 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 milling, drilling, and tapping. 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 horizontal and vertical structures, with horizontal being the most common for a number of reasons. For example, 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.
