CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Phoenix, AZ – 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 works best in these applications:
- Your part has diameters or is round, tubular, or cylindrical in shape
- You have a large volume of parts
- You have strict time limits
- You want 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 commercial, automotive, and oil and energy can benefit from CNC turning; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—in which precision is extremely critical— may benefit the most. The products manufactured for these industries can range from simple rings to complex curved components and beyond. Examples include pulleys, knobs, bars, tubes, bellows, flanges, bushings, shafts,etc.
CNC turning can be used in many different ways — contact us to see what CNC turning in Phoenix, AZ, can do for you!
Lathe Machine vs. Turning Center
At Roberson Machine Company, we have both lathes and turning centers in our facility, which gives us the capability to create most parts you need; however, there are key differences between these CNC machining products:
Lathe machines have two axes (X and Z-axis), one spindle, 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) as well as sub-spindles and multiple turrets. 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, drilling, tapping, 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 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.
