CNC Lathe Machined Parts in El Paso, TX – 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 are under strict time limits
- You want 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 turning; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—where attention to detail is extremely critical— may benefit the most. The products created 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 El Paso, TX, can do for you!
Lathe Machine vs. Turning Center
At Roberson Machine Company, we have both lathes and turning centers in our facility, which gives us the capability to create most parts you need; however, there are key differences between these CNC machining products:
Lathe machines have one spindle, two axes (X and Z-axis), 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 multiple turrets and sub-spindles. They are commonly slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures to keep coolant splashes and chips inside the machine. There are many versatile applications these types of machines offer, including turning, tapping, drilling, 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 may come in both horizontal and vertical structures, with horizontal being commonly used 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.
