CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Madison, WI – 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 works best in these applications:
- Your part has diameters or is round, tubular, or cylindrical in shape
- You have a lot of parts that need to be produced
- You have 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 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 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 Madison, WI, can do for you!
Lathe Machine vs. Turning Center
At Roberson Machine Company, we have both turning centers and lathes on our factory floor, which gives us the unique advantage to create most of the components you need; however, there are key differences between these types of machines:
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 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 turning, tapping, drilling, and milling. 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 commonly used 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.
