CNC Turning Machined Parts


CNC Lathe Machined Parts St. Petersburg – 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 round, tubular, or cylindrical 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—in which precision is highly critical— may benefit the most. The pieces created 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.

A CNC turning machine can certainly be used in a variety of ways to meet your needs — contact us to see what CNC turning in St. Petersburg, FL, can do for you!


Lathe Machine vs. Turning Center

At Roberson Machine Company, we utilize both turning centers and lathes 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 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) in addition to multiple turrets and sub-spindles. They are usually slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures to keep coolant splashes and chips inside the machine. There are many versatile applications these types of machines offer, including turning, tapping, drilling, and milling. Also, because they are completely controlled by a computer, a turning center can move on all axes simultaneously and with great precision.

A turning center may 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.
