CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Colorado Springs, CO – 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. 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 works best in these 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 limits
  • You require free range of motion to make everything from straightforward to complex designs
  • You want each piece to conform to the same precise specifications

All industries including commercial, automotive, and oil and energy can benefit from CNC turning; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—in which precision is extremely critical— may benefit the most. The products created for these industries can range from simple rings to complex curved components and more. Examples include pulleys, knobs, bars, tubes, bellows, flanges, bushings, shafts,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 Colorado Springs, CO, can do for you!


Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine

At Roberson Machine Company, we have both lathes and turning centers in our facility, which gives us the capability to create most of the components you need; however, there are distinct 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) as well as sub-spindles and multiple turrets. They are usually 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. 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 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.
