CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Cleveland, OH – Benefits & Applications
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 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 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—where attention to detail is extremely important— may benefit the most. The pieces 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.
CNC turning can be used in many different ways — contact us to see what CNC turning in Cleveland, OH, can do for you!
Lathe Machine vs. Turning Center
At Roberson Machine Company, we have both turning centers and lathes on our factory floor, which gives us the unique advantage to create most of the components you need; however, there are key 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 usually slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures that keep the chips and any coolant splashing inside the machine. These types of machines may be able to provide more versatile capabilities and applications, such as 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 can 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.
