CNC Lathe Machined Parts in Tucson, AZ – Benefits & Applications

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. 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 cylindrical, tubular, or round in shape
  • You have a large volume of parts
  • You have strict time restraints
  • You want free range of motion to make everything from straightforward to complex designs
  • You want each piece to conform to the same exacting 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 manufactured for these industries can range from simple gears to complex curved components and more. 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 Tucson, AZ, 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 manufacture most of the components you need; however, there are distinct differences between these types of machines:

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 sub-spindles and multiple turrets. They are commonly slant-bed type and have full-machine enclosures to keep coolant splashes and chips inside the machine. These types of machines may be able to provide more versatile capabilities and applications, such as 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. 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.
