Turn Mill

Horizontal Arrangement of Turning Process - For horizontal machining of turning, this turning model is the oldest and has been most widely used in the industrial field.

What Is a Turning Center?

In the field of lathe manufacturing, a turning center is also called a CNC turning center. It is a type of machine that rotates a work piece on a rotating axis (usually the X axis) to perform various machining operations, such as cutting, drilling, deforming, facing, and turning.

This type of machining procedure is processed by using a tool which is applied to the work piece and creates an object symmetrical to the axis driven by the spindle.


How To Tell What Kind of Lathe Machine Is?

Regarding the classification of CNC turning machines, there are two main types of this category. These are vertical lathes and horizontal lathes.

For the former, the work piece is fixed vertically, such as by clamping force. The installation direction of the cutting tool is the same, so the processing is performed vertically. Compared with the horizontal method, due to the effect of gravity, the rigidity and fixation of the clamping mechanism is higher.

Manufacturers of vertical lathes usually turn their vertical lathes into first-class manufacturing facilities for users in various industrial fields that pursue for high precision, such as automotive industry, aerospace sector, sport equipment application, and other fields with larger size materials.

Vertical Clamping & Milling Capacity

In addition, the vertical clamping mechanism can be realized by a belt driving method, and some can be other types of driving mechanisms. Either method can play a role of gravity well.

Like other milling machines and machine centers, lathes can also be equipped with power tools and tool magazines to increase their milling functionality and versatility, and provide greater processing possibilities such as milling capacity for field operators and business owners.

The power tool holder is a modern standard accessory for many CNC lathes. As one of the most important accessories for CNC lathe users, Taiwan suppliers have targeted this business and have developed many well-known power tool holders and power tool companies that supports the demands form lathe users.


Important Components

In the late 20th century, the power turret became one of the most important keys for lathes. Many power turrets are driven by a single motor with servo function, which can ensure the best processing effect and save the best energy consumption.

At the same time, they can also provide high rigidity for the workpiece and the ideal cutting ability. In addition, the tool magazine and automatic tool changer (ATC) are also the best-selling products of Taiwan machine tool parts suppliers.

Taiwan's tool magazine and ATC system provide customers with the best tool time based on cycle time engineering design, and can help manufacturers meet customer needs.


What are The Advantages of Taiwan’s Suppliers?

Taiwanese suppliers know how to provide comprehensive services to global customers with the best plans based on local conditions, so products equipped with machine tools or accessories have actually been upgraded to the latest version that meets order requirements.

Speaking of the heart of the machine, the spindle and the corresponding hydraulic cylinder used in conjunction with the chuck are also very developed in Taiwan. Along with the CNC lathe market, there are a bunch of lathe products and accessories that have been widely distributed in different industrial fields and applications around the world.

At the same time, the CNC horizontal lathe is a conventional design, which has been developed and widely used for more than a century or even longer.


Horizontal Arrangement of Turning Process

For horizontal machining of turning, this turning model is the oldest and has been most widely used in the industrial field. The horizontal feature makes the lathe easy to use and maintain.

Because of its convenience and structure, it is used in a wider range of industries. For users, there is no better standard answer in the horizontal or vertical direction, but only the application field.


Faster Mill Turn

What’s more, the high-speed RPM turning center is a highly developed machine tool that can handle many precision machining tasks at once. At first, the machine center was developed from the milling machine in the middle of the last century.

Since then, the development of this specific type of machine tool has developed well in the industry. The machine tool center has been widely used in various industries and made extensive efforts for industry.

Regarding the milling process, it is a machining process that uses a rotating tool to remove work piece material by advancing the tool into one or more work pieces. This processing method can be done in different directions. In addition to turning, milling also involves a variety of operations, ranging from a single tiny part to a heavy and large milling task.
