CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Toledo, OH – 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 lot of parts that need to be produced
- You have strict time limits
- You want 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 turned machine parts; however, the aeronautical and medical sectors—in which attention to detail is highly important— may benefit the most. The pieces created for these industries can range from simple gears 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 Toledo, OH, 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 manufacture most parts you need; however, there are distinct differences between these CNC machining products:
Lathe machines have one spindle, two axes (X and Z-axis), 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 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 can come in both horizontal and vertical structures, with horizontal being the most common 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.
