CNC Turning Machined Parts


CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Long Beach, CA – 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 works best in these 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 restraints
  • You require free range of motion to make everything from complex to straightforward 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 turning; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—where precision is highly critical— may benefit the most. The products created for these industries can range from simple gears to complex curved components and more. Examples include bellows, bars, tubes, shafts, knobs, pulleys, bushings, flanges, etc.

CNC turning can be used in many different ways — contact us to see what CNC turning in Long Beach, CA, can do for you!


Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine

At Roberson Machine Company, we have both lathes and turning centers in our facility, which gives us the unique advantage to manufacture 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 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. These types of machines may be able to provide more versatile capabilities and applications, such as 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. 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.
