CNC Turning Machined Parts


CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Midland, TX – Benefits & Applications

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 may work best in these common applications:

  • Your part has diameters or is round, tubular, or cylindrical in shape
  • You have a large volume of parts
  • You have strict time restraints
  • You need free range of motion to make everything from straightforward to complex designs
  • You want 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—where attention to detail is extremely important— may benefit the most. The products manufactured for these industries can range from simple rings to complex curved components and more. 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 Midland, TX, can do for you!


Lathe Machine vs. Turning Center

At Roberson Machine Company, we utilize both turning centers and lathes in our facility, which gives us the competitive advantage to manufacture most parts 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 generally simpler machines.

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 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 turning, drilling, tapping, and milling. 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 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.
