CNC Lathe Machined Parts New York City – 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. 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 cylindrical, tubular, or round 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 precise specifications
All industries including commercial, automotive, 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 pieces created for these industries can range from simple rings to complex curved components and more. 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 New York City, NY, can do for you!
Lathe Machine vs. Turning Center
At Roberson Machine Company, we utilize both lathes and turning centers in our facility, which gives us the competitive advantage to build most of the components you need; however, there are distinct differences between these types of machines:
Lathe machines have two axes (X and Z-axis), one spindle, 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 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. For example, 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.
