The CNC machining industry has seen amazing developments and innovations since the incorporation of computer programming into machining operations. CNC machining is a highly competitive industry, and among the multitude of companies striving to excel in this field, Chevalier Machinery Inc. has grown to be a leading manufacturer of CNC high-precision surface and form grinders, machining centers, turret milling machines, and multi-function lathes.
The turning process is to make the material reach the desired shape by removing the material, and its machining accuracy is high and there is no mold restriction. But the production cost is high and the processing speed is slow.
Computer numerical control (CNC) turning is a subtractive machining process where a cutting tool is placed against a spinning piece to take material off. This is usually done with a CNC lathe or turning center which cuts the material including wood, metal, and plastic. This article will cover the different types of CNC lathes, their components, and which type you could use for your next project.
CNC turning centers and lathe machinery look are the same, but they usually refer to slightly different machine tools. Lathes can usually only turn, while turning centers can be more advanced. These machines can perform end face, thread, knurling, drilling, boring, reaming, and taper turning. Horizontal CNC lathes are more common, while vertical machine tools use gravity. CNC turning centers can benefit from predictive maintenance.
