What is mill turn means?
Either mill turn or turn mill refers to the processing procedure utilizing milling and turning. However, to be precise, mill turn is lathe-based machining while turn mill is milling-based machining. This critical distinctive characteristic determines the two models as different machine tool types.

Lathe-based: What is this for

In the metalworking sector, a programmed turning machine is also called a CNC turning machine, which is a computer-controlled machine tool that rotates a work piece on the X-axis of rotation in order to perform various machining operations with the saddle movement, such as cutting, drilling, deformation, and turning. On the lathe machines, these machining procedures are well-conducted with tools that are applied to the work piece and to create an object with symmetry with the axis which is driven by the primary spindle, not secondary spindle which is normally at the end of the work piece for two end processing procedure or other multi-tasking duties.

Lathe components

Due to the fact that CNC turn mill centres are very common processing equipment in the modern industry especially in the multi-tasking process missions, this is normally a CNC mill turn lathe now with the milling functionalities and competence added into the milling machine frame, which is a milling machine that can conduct programmed (CNC) milling as well as programmed turning procedures or even mill-turn complex (multi-tasking). This type of lathe machines is a complicated programmed turning cutter that can deal with a series of sophisticated cutting tasks and achieve shorter cycle time within a relative cost range.

Tool magazines reducing manual operation

For quicker tool change, the power turret normally equipped with the ATC and tool magazine. The automatic tool changers are also the best sellers of Taiwanese machine tool accessory suppliers due to their higher price performance ratios compared with the global competitors. In fact, Taiwan’s tool magazine and ATC system offer the optimal tool to tool time for customers based on their cycle time engineering planned and can help manufacturers keep up with the customers’ demands and make their product delivery much more punctual.

What is a power turret?

The conventional turret is a fixed station clamping tool that allows for only one axis movement. Today, with the power turret, a CNC turn mill centre machine, or say, a CNC turning center, can conduct not only turning, but also milling and multi-tasking machining tasks that were only possible on the machining centers in the old days.

In the assembly plant of turning machinery, it is clear that many of these power turrets are driven by single motor with servo features, which can assure the best cutting effects and save the optimal energy consumption; at the mean time, they can also provide great rigidity onto the work pieces, rendering a perfect cutting performance on the production lines for accurate assembly requirements.

Industrial Chain of lathe accessories in Taiwan

A lathe is composed of many complicated parts. Turning spindles, belts, and fixing chuck and the corresponding hydraulic cylinders are also well developed in Taiwan. Together with the CNC turning center market, there are a bunch of lathe products and accessories that are widely spread in the world across different industrial sectors and applications. In the assembly plant of turning machinery, it is clear that many of these power turrets are driven by single motor with servo features, which can assure the best cutting effects and save the optimal energy consumption; at the mean time, they can also provide great rigidity onto the work pieces, rendering an ideal cutting capabilities.
