In the machine tool sector, spindle applications are important topics and grinding spindles are also a focused topic for buyers. As one of the critical components of modern machine tools, spindles are designed in a wide variety of forms which is basically based on the driving mechanisms as well as other power systems.Mar 30, 2020
After the invention of turning machines, milling machines could be recognized as the second greatest machining machinery that changes human life style ever since. Inside the milling machine design ideology, the rotational spindles clamping the cutting tools are so convenient to processing because with this design the work pieces can be still and the cutting procedure is thus different from turning methodology.Mar 25, 2020
Machining spindles are spindles used for machining, so the broad definition of this term could be of turning spindle, milling spindle, grinding spindle, and the stuff. While in another sense, there are some other industrial insiders prefer this term for spindles for machining centers. In modern machine tool industry, a spindle is a rotational axis of the machine, which usually designed with a shaft at its center. The shaft itself is named a spindle, but also, in the market slang, the referring term (phrase) is often used metonymically to point at the entire rotating unit, including not only the shaft itself, but also its bearings and anything around to it. In this point of view, a built-in spindle is one of the top-classed one that is self-motorized due to its electric-driven nature and is designed with the power unit close with the spindle case box.Mar 12, 2020
What is complex profile cutting?
In medical, aerospace, automation, and many other industrial applications, precision components become common and the corresponding components are very complicated with many curves and profile shapes. Accordingly, mill turn is a lathe machine that can conduct milling tasks with the additional components such as the fourth axis, power turrets, live tools, swivel bed, ATC, etc., becomes very useful in this application.
A milling lathe?
Yes! Due to the fast development of the live tools technology, now in the metalworking industry, CNC turn mill lathe (also known as turning center) is one of the most advanced turning facilities in the market for the production lines all over the globe. For many processing reasons, with the advanced turning and milling competence, a turn mill centre can normally achieve all kinds of the processing missions and task demands including both turning and milling if the work piece size is within its chuck and the cylinder capacity is enough to cope with the demands.
What is fixed head Swiss-type lathe?
A Swiss-type lath, by definition, is a specific design of turning lathe providing extreme accuracy and precision standard, and there are two categories inside this machinery inventory. A fixed head Swiss-style lathe holds the work piece with both a collet and a guide bushing. The collet locates behind the guide bushing, and the tools sit in front of the guide bushing, normally holding stationary on the Z-axis. In the fixed head module, the fixed head lathe is a fixed headstock. The work piece is held in a chuck and extends into the machine enclosure as a cantilever or can be supported on the end of the tailstock if the work piece is the length for some cases.
