CNC Turning Machined Parts


CNC Lathe Machined Parts Chattanooga – 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 are under strict time restraints
  • You want free range of motion to make everything from complex to straightforward 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—in which precision is extremely important— may benefit the most. The products created 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.

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 Chattanooga, TN, can do for you!


Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine

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

Lathe machines have one spindle, two axes (X and Z-axis), 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) in addition to multiple turrets and sub-spindles. 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 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 may come in both vertical and horizontal structures, with horizontal being the most common 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.
