CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Independence, MO – 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 round, tubular, or cylindrical in shape
  • You have a large volume of parts
  • You are under strict time restraints
  • You want free range of motion to make everything from straightforward to complex designs
  • You need each piece to conform to the same precise specifications

All industries including automotive, commercial, and oil and energy can benefit from CNC turned machine parts; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—in which attention to detail is highly important— may benefit the most. The products 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.

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 Independence, MO, 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 capability to manufacture most parts you need; however, there are key differences between these CNC machining products:

Lathe machines have two axes (X and Z-axis), one spindle, and can 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) 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 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 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.
