CNC Lathe Machined Parts Denver – 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 cylindrical, tubular, or round in shape
- You have a large volume of parts
- You have strict time restraints
- You need free range of motion to make everything from straightforward to complex 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 products manufactured for these industries can range from simple rings to complex curved components and more. Examples include bellows, bars, tubes, shafts, knobs, pulleys, bushings, flanges, 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 Denver, CO, 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 unique advantage to build 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 sub-spindles and multiple turrets. They are usually slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures that 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. 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.
