What Is CNC Turning?
CNC turning is manufacturing progress that involves using turning machines to remove unnecessary material to form the desired shape. This process is ideal for cutting any parts with a rotationally symmetrical shape.
What Are The Typical CNC Lathes?
CNC lathe machine is part of CNC machines, it is ideal for producing any symmetrical cylindrical or round parts.
There are many types of lathes, but 2-axis CNC lathes and Multi-axis CNC turning center are the two most common types.
The 2-axis CNC lathe is a simpler and cheaper machine, it is designed for turning operation only and be ideal to cut round features with precise depths and diameters.
THE Multi-axis CNC turning center, on the other hand, refers to a new CNC turning machine by adding a live-tool. Simply speaking, the live-tool helps to add milling operation. As a result, it can produce more complex parts in an extremely cost-effective way.
At RapidDone, we have both 2-axis and multi-axis turning machines. So we can provide you with different process options for our customers, we are more flexible to work out a better solution, offering better lathe manufacturing services.
How Do You Run A CNC Turning Process?
To explore this material-removing progress clearly, we cut it into four steps below.
First, we have a 3D design prepared. Run the 3D into the G-code design software to create the G-code which can be recognized by the CNC lathe machine.
Secondly, select the proper block material and use the chuck to hold it in place firmly.
Thirdly, turn the spindle and driver the cutter to start the material removing progress. After this step, the workpiece can be cut to the required geometry by following your 3D design shape.
Finally, the lathe automatically gets ready and start to repeat the material removal progress.
What Materials Can Be Cut With CNC Turning process?
Same as CNC milling, CNC turning can work on a variety of materials, including most and plastic materials and metal materials. Those stock materials are available in different shapes such as cylindrical bars and tubes at our factory.
The plastic materials mainly refer to ABS, polycarbonate, acrylic, nylon, peek, and more. The common Metal materials, on the other hand, are aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, and more.
However, two types of materials are not suitable for the turning process.
The first one is hardened steel materials. This one asks for a much smaller feeding during machining, this leads to a longer machining time and a higher cost. The second one is the soft materials such as elastomer material. This type of material is so soft that is not easy to be fixed during machining, this can lead to a shaking problem easily during the turning process.
What Are The Finishes For CNC Turned Parts?
Similar to the milled parts, there are a lot of finishing options for a turned component. The mainly several types include as as-milled, painting, anodized, powder coat.
Among them, the as-milled finishing comes out right after the cutting progress, so this finishing is the easiest and cheapest one. However, this brings the visible tool marks on the part surface, you might need to have another finishing step if you have a higher requirement.
RapidDone can offer various surface finishing options, you can talk to us to get the answer for any of the finishing queries.
What Are The Typical Applications?
The CNC turning part can be applied to a lot of applications. Usually, they can be made into different industrial products such as shafts, pins, spacers, fasteners, spindles, car wheels, and more.
What Are The Common CNC Turning Operations?
During one completed turning process cycle, it takes a variety of operations that are used to cut the workpiece to the desired part shape.
As for each operation, it is defined by the type of cutter used as well as the moving path of that cutter when cutting the workpiece. Here are the most common types.
What Are The Recommended Tips During A CNC Turning Process?
Like any other manufacturing process, we need to follow some machining guidelines with the CNC turning process.
By following these recommendations, we can not avoid some defects, benefit the production efficiency, and reduce cost.
1. Secure The Workpiece Firmly
If the workpiece is not fixed firmly in the chucks during the turning process, it can lead to a big deviation from the required dimension. Worse case, it can lead to an accident, damage to the machine, or injury to the operator. Therefore, it is important to have parts clamped well.
2. Run The Coolant
It can generate a lot of heat during lathe cutting operation for both tool and workpiece, coolant can bring the heat away dramatically.
There are two benefits to this recommendation. First, it can greatly extend tool life. Secondly, the cutting speeds with sufficient coolant can run faster than the insufficient one, this leads to higher productivity.
3. Keep The Lathe Cutting Tool As Sharp As Possible
A sharp tool is good for cutting operations and quality surfaces. The dull tool, on the other hand, is the reason for big roughness and burn mark problem. Therefore, it is important to choose a sharp lather cutting tool. Meanwhile, it is suggested to monitor the whole turning cut progress to avoid the dull edge issue.
4. Set Cutting Parameters Correctly
The lathe cutting parameters include spindle speed, feed rate, and cutting depth. If we run it correctly, it can produce a quality part with more smooth surfaces.
