CNC Lathe Machined Parts Sacramento – 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 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 are under strict time restraints
- You require free range of motion to make everything from complex to straightforward 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—where precision is highly critical— may benefit the most. The pieces manufactured for these industries can range from simple gears 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 Sacramento, CA, can do for you!
Lathe Machine vs. Turning Center
At Roberson Machine Company, we have both lathes and turning centers on our factory floor, which gives us the competitive advantage to create most parts 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) in addition to multiple turrets and sub-spindles. They are usually slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures to keep the chips and any coolant splashing inside the machine. There are many versatile applications these types of machines offer, including turning, tapping, drilling, 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 can come in both horizontal and vertical 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.
