CNC Turning Machined Parts


CNC Lathe Machined Parts Garland – 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. 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 cylindrical, round, or tubular in shape
  • You have a lot of parts that need to be produced
  • You have strict time limits
  • You need 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 precision is extremely critical— may benefit the most. The pieces created for these industries can range from simple rings to complex curved components and more. 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 Garland, TX, can do for you!


Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine

At Roberson Machine Company, we have both turning centers and lathes on our factory floor, which gives us the competitive advantage 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 simpler machines to use in general.

CNC turning centers can have 3, 4, or 5-axes (including a Y-axis) as well as sub-spindles and multiple turrets. They are commonly slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures to keep coolant splashes and chips inside the machine. These types of machines may be able to provide more versatile capabilities and applications, such as 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 may come in both vertical and horizontal structures, with horizontal being the most common for a number of reasons. For example, 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.
