CNC Lathe Machined Parts Omaha – Applications & Benefits
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 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 highly critical— may benefit the most. The products created for these industries can range from simple gears to complex curved components and beyond. 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 Omaha, NE, can do for you!
Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine
At Roberson Machine Company, we utilize both turning centers and lathes 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 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 usually 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 milling, drilling, and tapping. 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 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.
