Machining Center or Turning Center? Comparison and Introduction

The turning and milling center is one of the most advanced technologies of the 21st century in the production line all over the world. Because of its advanced processing capabilities, if the workpiece size is within the design range of its chuck, the turning center can even complete various processing tasks.

Accessories of Turn Mill Centre

Turn mill centres are very common processing equipment in modern industry. Now, this is usually a CNC mill turn, which adds milling functions to the frame. The lathe can perform programmed milling and programmed turning procedures, and even complex milling and turning. This type of lathe is a complex programmed turning tool that can handle a series of complex cutting tasks and reduce cycle time within a relative cost range.


What is turn mill lathe machine?

A turn mill lathe is also called a turning machine, is a machine tool that rotates a workpiece on the x-axis of rotation to perform various machining operations, such as cutting, knurling, end faces, and turning. This machining process is performed by using a tool that is applied to the workpiece and creates an object symmetrical to the spindle, which is driven by the spindle or spindle assembly.

Additional Parts and Accessories

Moreover, among all the important lathe accessories in modern industry, the power turret is a modern customized part of many CNC mill turn centers. As one of the most important accessories for CNC lathe users, Taiwan suppliers are committed to this business. Many well-known power turret and power tool companies have been developed, and these companies can meet the demands of users in the turning process.

Furthermore, with the power turret, the lathe, CNC turning center, can not only perform turning, but also perform milling and multi-task machining tasks, which previously could only be done on the machining center. In the assembly plant of turning machinery, many power turrets are driven by a single motor with a servo function, which can ensure the best cutting results and save the best energy consumption. At the same time, they can also provide high rigidity for the workpiece and the ideal cutting ability.

What’s More

In addition to power turrets, tool magazines and automatic tool changers are also the best-selling products of Taiwan's machine tool accessory suppliers, because their cost performance is higher than global competitors. In fact, Taiwan's tool magazine and ATC system provide customers with the optimal tool to tool time according to the planned cycle time engineering, and can help manufacturers closely and steadily meet customers’ demands.

Because complex curves and profiles require many machining requirements, one cutting tool cannot satisfy all kinds of the machining demands. The dynamic turret and its automatic tool mechanism installed in the turret body can provide additional machining capacity to the lathe machining during the processing procedure. Since the cutting tools installed on the power turret can also be rotated by the servo motor installed inside, the milling performance of these power tools is not lower than that of traditional machining centers.


The Clamping Force

The clamping mechanism of the vertical lathe is introduced as follows. The spindle of the vertical lathe is also located behind the chuck. Some spindles may be belt-driven, and some spindles may be other types of drive mechanisms. Like other milling machines and CNC machining centers, lathes can also be equipped with power tools and tool magazines to improve their functionality and versatility and provide users with greater processing possibilities.
