Milling Capacity of Turn–mill Center

Horizontal arrangement of turning process Regarding the horizontal processing of turning, this type of turning model is the oldest one and has been applied the widest in the industrial field. 

What is a turning center?

In the sector of turning machine manufacturing, a turning center is also called a CNC turning machine, that is a machine tool that rotates a work piece on an axis (usually as the X axis) of rotation to perform various machining operations such as cutting, drilling, deformation, facing, and turning. Such machining procedures are 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.

How to tell what kind of lathe machine is?

Regarding the classification of the CNC turning machines, there are mainly two primary types in this category. That is, the vertical lathe, and the horizontal counterparts. For the former, the work piece is fixed (as by clamping force) vertically and the cutting tool is thus installed the same direction so that the machining is conducted vertically. In this way, the clamping mechanism is much more rigid and fixed due to the gravity effect compared to the horizontal methodology and manufacturers of vertical turning machines usually made their vertical turning machines into great manufacturing facilities for users in a variety of industrial sectors that pursue for high precision, such as automotive industry, aerospace sector, sport equipment application, and other fields with larger size materials.

Vertical clamping

Furthermore, vertical clamping mechanism may be achieved with the belt-driven way, and some may be other types of driving mechanisms, while either way works well to the gravity effects. Like other milling machines and machine centers, turning lathes can also be equipped with power tools as well as too magazines to boost its functionality and versatility, granting wider processing possibility to onsite operators as well as business owners.

Power turret is a modern and standard accessory of many CNC turning machines, and as one of the most important accessories to the users of CNC lathes, Taiwanese suppliers aim at this business and have developed many well known power turret and power tool companies that supports the demands form lathe users.

Important components

After the late era of the 20th century, power turret becomes one of the most important key to turning machine. Many of these power turrets are driven by single motor with servo features, which can assure the best machining 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. Besides, tool magazine and the automatic too changer (ATC) are also the best sellers of Taiwanese machine tool accessory suppliers. Taiwan’s tool magazine and ATC system offers the optimal tool to tool time to customers based on their cycle time engineering, and can help manufacturers keep up with the customers’ demands.

What are the advantages of Taiwan’s suppliers

Taiwanese suppliers know how to provide comprehensive services to global customers with the best planning according to the local circumstances, hence the productions that are equipped with the machine tools or accessories are actually face lifted to the latest version that is modern to the order demands. Speaking of the heart of the machine, the Spindles, which works with the chuck and the corresponding hydraulic cylinders are also well developed in Taiwan. Together with the CNC turning machine market, there are a bunch of lathe products and accessories that are widely spread in the world across different industrial sectors and applications. At the same time, the CNC horizontal lathes belong to conventional design that has been developed and massively applied for over a century or even longer.

Horizontal arrangement of turning process

Regarding the horizontal processing of turning, this type of turning model is the oldest one and has been applied the widest in the industrial field. The horizontal nature makes the turning machine easy to be used and maintained, and are used even wider in a lot of industries due to their convenience and structure. Therefore, there is no standard answer to either horizontal or vertical is better for users, but only about the application sectors.

Faster mill turn

What’s ore, high speed RPM turning center is a highly developed machine tool that can deal with many precision machining tasks all at once. At first, machine center is developed from milling machines at the mid of the last century and since then, the development of this specific type of machine tools goes well in the industry, and after that, machine centers are widely applied in all kinds of industries, contributing a wide range of industrial efforts.

In regard to milling process, it is the process of machining that utilizes spinning tools to remove work piece materials by advancing a tool into one or several work pieces. This machining method could be done on different directions. Besides turning, milling covers a wide variety of various operations and ranges a wide scale from single tiny parts to heavy and large milling operation tasks.
