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 all over the world market.

What is CNC mill turn?

CNC mill turn can be recognized as an advanced version of conventional CNC lathe machines. A CNC lathe 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, knurling, sanding, 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.

The further advancement

The classification of the CNC turning machines varies, and 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. CNC mill turn machines could be either vertical or horizontal, and the arrangement is based on the machining demands.

CNC turning center

Accordingly, in the metalworking sector, a turn and mill machine is also known as a CNC turning center; this is a machine tool capable of both turning and milling functions and rotates a work piece on an axis of rotation to perform various, machining operations such as cutting and turning assisted by the existence of turret. These kind of machining tasks are processed with turret 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 and assisted by live tools.

As all the tools are prepared for the work pieces, so the clamping mechanism of the work piece is another critical point for the mill turn. 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 work pieces.

Vertical clamping

In addition, 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 users.

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 all over the world market. In conventional custom, mill turn machines with turret are categorized into two main types according to the way that clamp the work pieces. Those are vertical lathe and the horizontal counterparts. For the vertical version, the work piece is clamped vertically and the cutting tool is thus installed the same direction so that the machining is conducted vertically.

Fixed clamping for vertical design

This way the clamping is much more stern 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 work pieces.

Accessories for turn mill

In the sector of modern metal working machining, power turret is 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.

Meanwhile, they can also provide great rigidity onto the work pieces, rendering 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 order demands. Besides these accessories, there are still many other parts, components, and accessories for the better exploitation purpose of a CNC turn mill machine such as tile mechanism, rotary table, hydraulic table, etc.

The trend of the turning machines

Ever since the machine tools are the most fundamental capital goods for manufacturers and play the critical role that determines the final output of the end products, the quality of the machine tool becomes the key point of the quality of the manufacturers’ final end products. The inventory of machine tools varies from time to time. Now after the invention of the turning centers and the programmed controlling system (CNC, computer numerical control), the standards of machining become more and more rigid compared with the standards before. Besides the CNC turning centers, there are also CNC milling centers, CNC milling machines, CNC tapping and milling centers, CNC drilling and milling centers, and many other models that is based on agile processing.
