CNC Mill Turn Machining Centers for Complex Profile Machining

Posted on Mar 2, 2020


What is Complex Profile Cutting?

In medical, aerospace, automation, and many other industrial applications, precision components have become commonplace, and the corresponding components are very complex with many curves and contour shapes. Therefore, mill turn is a lathe that can perform milling tasks with other parts, such as the fourth axis, power turret, movable tool, rotary bed, ATC, etc., which is very useful in this application.

In fact, with the advancement of industry in the world today, agile manufacturing has become a necessary condition for every manufacturer in the production line. It is no longer big news that CNC lathes are required to have some milling talents.

Useful and Reasonable Prices

Compared with multi-task machining centers, the versatile lathe machines are reasonably and affordable priced. Among all the important lathe parts in the modern industry, the power turret is a modern customized part of many CNC milling machine turning centers. As one of the most important parts for CNC lathe users, Taiwan suppliers have targeted this business and developed many well-known power turret and power tool companies support the needs of turning technology users.

In addition, with the power turret driven by the servo motor, the lathe or CNC turning and milling center can not only perform turning, but also perform milling and multi-task machining tasks, which can only be completed in the machining center. It used to be, but now it can be used on a lathe.

An Introduction to Motors

Regarding power turrets and live tool power sources, many of these power turrets are driven by a single motor with a servo function, which can ensure the best processing results and save the best energy consumption. At the same time, they can also provide a high rigidity and ideal cutting capacity. In modern machinery, the direct drive motor can be any rotary or linear motor whose load is directly connected to the motor without the need for any other mechanical transmission elements, ie gearbox, belt and pulley system. The motor directly drives the load in the mechanism. Here, we discuss two main categories: rotary and linear.

The torque motor is a rotating motor. Sometimes, rotary direct-drive motors are also called torque motors because they can emit high torque at low speeds even when they are stalled. In terms of its design, torque motors are usually brushless and permanent magnet synchronous motors. Their designs are usually frameless designs, which means that they do not include housings, bearings or other feedback devices. In addition, the pancake motor is an alternative. In the same category, another type of rotary direct drive motor group is the pancake motor. Unlike the torque motors described above, these motors are brushed DC motors in which the armature windings are printed on a set of insulating and non-magnetic materials and objects.


Regarding its composition, the armature group is located between two stator groups, which contain permanent magnets alternately arranged with north and south poles. At the same time, the magnetic flux runs along the length of the motor, and the current runs along the radial direction.

This arrangement leads to the fact that the torque generated around the motor axis. As a result, pancake motors and torque motors are used in different industrial fields. Although they belong to the category of rotary motors, they are essentially different. Torque motors are widely applied in tape recorders and work with wheel type winding mechanism well to achieve smooth operation.
