CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Los Angeles, CA – 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. 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 lot of parts that need to be produced
- You are under strict time restraints
- 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 turning; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—in which precision is highly critical— may benefit the most. The products manufactured for these industries can range from simple gears to complex curved components and beyond. 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 Los Angeles, CA, can do for you!
Lathe Machine vs. Turning Center
At Roberson Machine Company, we have both lathes and turning centers in our facility, which gives us the competitive advantage to create most of the components you need; however, there are distinct differences between these CNC machining products:
Lathe machines have one spindle, two axes (X and Z-axis), 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 to keep the chips and any coolant splashing inside the machine. These types of machines may be able to provide more versatile capabilities and applications, such as milling, drilling, and tapping. Plus, due to the fact that they are completely controlled by a computer, the CNC turning center is able to have great precision when moving on all axes at once.
A turning center may come in both horizontal and vertical structures, with horizontal being the most common for a number of reasons. For example, a horizontally-oriented spindle allows gravity to make any metal chips fall into the bed below, which means the workpiece can be kept clean during the cutting process.
