CNC Lathe Machined Parts Lubbock – 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. 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 works best in these applications:
- Your part has diameters or is cylindrical, round, or tubular in shape
- You have a lot of parts that need to be produced
- You are under strict time restraints
- You need 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 turning; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—in which attention to detail is highly important— may benefit the most. The products manufactured for these industries can range from simple rings 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 Lubbock, TX, can do for you!
Lathe Machine vs. Turning Center
At Roberson Machine Company, we have both lathes and turning centers on our factory floor, which gives us the competitive advantage to build 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 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 commonly slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures to 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 may come in both vertical and horizontal 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.
