CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Seattle, WA – 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, tubular, or round in shape
  • You have a large volume of parts
  • You have strict time limits
  • You require 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 turning; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—in which precision is extremely important— may benefit the most. The products created for these industries can range from simple gears to complex curved components and more. Examples include bars, tubes, knobs, pulleys, bellows, flanges, shafts, bushings, etc.

CNC turning can be used in many different ways — contact us to see what CNC turning in Seattle, WA, 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 competitive advantage to manufacture most parts you need; however, there are key differences between these CNC machining products:

Lathe machines have one spindle, two axes (X and Z-axis), 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) as well as multiple turrets and sub-spindles. They are usually slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures that 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 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 horizontal and vertical structures, with horizontal being commonly used 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.
