CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Memphis, TN – 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, round, or tubular in shape
  • You have a large volume of parts
  • You have strict time limits
  • You require free range of motion to make everything from complex to straightforward 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 turning; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—in which precision 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 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 Memphis, TN, can do for you!


Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine

At Roberson Machine Company, we utilize both lathes and turning centers on our factory floor, which gives us the unique advantage to build most of the components 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 to keep coolant splashes and chips inside the machine. There are many versatile applications these types of machines offer, including 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 can come in both horizontal and vertical structures, with horizontal being the most common for a number of reasons. In these types of applications, 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.
