CNC Lathe – Mass Production Turning by Glacern Machine Tools

CNC machine Machine

A turning of an aeronautical component in mass production. Alloy steel with a diameter of 1″. The equipment is a Mori Seiki NL2500SY-700 CNC Turning Center with a subspindle, live tooling, and Y and C axes on both spindles. The Uɴɪqᴜᴇ quality that makes this lathe so beloved by people other than just Mori fans is that it is one of the lucky NL series of Jᴀᴘᴀɴese-made machines. The Mori Seiki NL 2500 lathe is the benchmark among all lathes in its category due to the fact that its entire construction is built of cast iron, which highlights its stability and precision.

CNC Lathes are machine tools where the material or part is clamped and turned by the main spindle, while the cutting tool that works on the material, is mounted and moved in multiple axes. The cutting tool is stationary mounted for OD and ID operations, such as those performed on shafts and pipes, while the material or part is clamped and turned in CNC lathes. They are best suited for components with ɪᴅᴇɴᴛɪᴄᴀʟ symmetry around an axis that could be thrown up in the spindle.

A basic CNC lathe has two axes of motion and an 8–24 station turret where the tool is fixed in place. Certain varieties of CNC lathes are referred to as CNC turning machines because the rotating motion of the component is referred to as “turning.”

The drive system for the milling, boring, and tapping tools is typically located inside the turret. The life tools are installed for axial or radial operative directions depending on the application. Both 3-axis CNC lathes and CNC turning machines may contain these.

Turning centers are the usual name for lathes that have additional features like Y-axis, sub-spindles, or specifically chosen options for automation. These sophisticated machine tools may accomplish complex part fabrication in one configuration by incorporating milling, drilling, and tapping operations in addition to normal OD and ID turning operations. Such all-in-one machine tools greatly increase production by transforming an item from a raw component to a finished product.
