CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Laredo, 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 lot of parts that need to be produced
  • You have strict time limits
  • You require 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 commercial, automotive, and oil and energy can benefit from CNC turned machine parts; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—in which attention to detail is extremely important— may benefit the most. The pieces manufactured for these industries can range from simple gears to complex curved components and beyond. 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 Laredo, 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 capability to build most of the components you need; however, there are key differences between these types of machines:

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 multiple turrets and sub-spindles. They are usually slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures that 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.
