CNC Turning Machined Parts


CNC Lathe Machined Parts Sioux Falls – 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. 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 round, tubular, or cylindrical in shape
  • You have a large volume of parts
  • You are under strict time limits
  • You require free range of motion to make everything from complex to straightforward designs
  • You want each piece to conform to the same precise specifications

All industries including commercial, automotive, and oil and energy can benefit from CNC turned machine parts; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—where precision is highly important— may benefit the most. The products manufactured for these industries can range from simple rings 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 Sioux Falls, SD, can do for you!


Turning Center vs. Lathe Machine

At Roberson Machine Company, we have both lathes and turning centers in our facility, which gives us the unique advantage to create most parts 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 multiple turrets and sub-spindles. They are usually slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures that 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 can come in both horizontal and vertical structures, with horizontal being commonly used 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.
