CNC Lathe Machined Parts Tampa – Benefits & Applications
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 works best in these 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 need free range of motion to make everything from straightforward to complex designs
- You want each piece to conform to the same precise 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 attention to detail is highly critical— may benefit the most. The products manufactured for these industries can range from simple rings to complex curved components and more. Examples include bellows, bars, tubes, shafts, knobs, pulleys, bushings, flanges, 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 Tampa, FL, 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 unique 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 may be flat-bed type making them generally simpler machines.
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 that keep coolant splashes and chips inside the machine. There are many versatile applications these types of machines offer, including milling, drilling, and tapping. 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 can come in both vertical and horizontal structures, with horizontal being the most common for a number of reasons. In these types of applications, 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.
