CNC Turning Machined Parts


CNC Lathe Machined Parts Nashville – Benefits & Applications

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 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 require free range of motion to make everything from straightforward to complex designs
  • You need each piece to conform to the same exacting specifications

All industries including automotive, commercial, and oil and energy can benefit from CNC turning; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—where 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 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 Nashville, TN, can do for you!


Lathe Machine vs. Turning Center

At Roberson Machine Company, we utilize both lathes and turning centers on our factory floor, which gives us the capability to manufacture most of the components you need; however, there are distinct differences between these types of machines:

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) 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. 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. In these types of applications, the spindle is horizontally-oriented and tools are mounted out of the side of the tool holder. Gravity causes the metal chips to fall to the bed below, which keeps the piece clean during cutting.
