CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Las Vegas, NV – 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. 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 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 want 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 commercial, automotive, 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 products created for these industries can range from simple gears to complex curved components and beyond. Examples include pulleys, knobs, bars, tubes, bellows, flanges, bushings, shafts,etc.
CNC turning can be used in many different ways — contact us to see what CNC turning in Las Vegas, NV, can do for you!
Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine
At Roberson Machine Company, we utilize both lathes and turning centers in our facility, which gives us the unique advantage to build most parts you need; however, there are distinct 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 commonly slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures that 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, 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 can 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.
