CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Norman, OK – 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. 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 cylindrical, round, or tubular in shape
  • You have a large volume of parts
  • You are under strict time limits
  • You want 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—where attention to detail is extremely critical— may benefit the most. The pieces manufactured for these industries can range from simple rings to complex curved components and more. Examples include pulleys, knobs, bars, tubes, bellows, flanges, bushings, shafts,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 Norman, OK, 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 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 simpler machines to use in general.

CNC turning centers can have 3, 4, or 5-axes (including a Y-axis) in addition to sub-spindles and multiple turrets. They are commonly slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures that keep the chips and any coolant splashing inside the machine. There are many versatile applications these types of machines offer, including milling, drilling, and tapping. 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 vertical and horizontal structures, with horizontal being the most common 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.
