CNC Turning Machined Parts


CNC Lathe Machined Parts Raleigh – 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. 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 works best in these 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 restraints
  • You need 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 turned machine parts; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—in which precision is highly critical— may benefit the most. The products created for these industries can range from simple gears to complex curved components and more. 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 Raleigh, NC, can do for you!


Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine

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 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 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. 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 horizontal and vertical 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.
