Turret is very common in modern lathe machines, while vertical turning lathes are widely used in various industrial fields. The advantages of vertical turret lathes make this very popular in the market. As one of the most classic and useful machine tool models, turning lathes with vertical turret are popular in many industrial fields. In the categorization of automatic lathes, there are many specifications while one of the common features is the vertical/ horizontal arrangement. Both arrangements can rely on vertical turret sets.
CNC vertical turret lathe machine is also called CNC vertical turret turning machine. It is a machine tool that rotates a work piece on a rotating axis to perform various machining operations, such as cutting, knurling, sanding, drilling, deformation, end machining, and turning with vertical turrets. These machining tasks are performed by tools on turrets applied to the work piece to create objects that are symmetrical to the axis driven by the spindle. According to the mechanism of clamping the work piece in the lathe, the turning turret lathes can be divided into two main types.
The two types are vertical turret lathes and horizontal lathes. In a vertical turret lathe, the work piece is clamped vertically, and the cutting tools are installed in the same direction to perform vertical machining. Compared with horizontal lathes, this way of clamping is stronger due to the gravity effect. Manufacturers of vertical turning machines usually turn their vertical turning machines into high precision production equipment for the automotive industry, aerospace industry, sports equipment manufacturing and other industrial fields with large work pieces that can be dealt with by vertical turrets. In the vertical clamping mechanism of the lathe, the lathe spindle is also located behind the chuck. The spindle may be driven by belt, or it may be equipped with other types of driving mechanisms. The design is related to the vertical turrets as well.
Similar to other milling machines and machining centers, turning lathes can also be equipped with power tools and tool magazines to improve their functionality and versatility, thereby providing machine operators with greater processing possibilities. Advanced vertical turret is a modern standard accessory for many CNC turning machines and one of the most important accessories for users of CNC lathes. Taiwanese suppliers aimed at this business and developed many well known power turrets and power tools to support the needs of global lathe users. A single motor with servo function is used to drive a high power turret to ensure the best processing results and save the best energy consumption. At the same time, they can also provide great rigidity for the work piece, so as to achieve the ideal cutting process.
In addition to power vertical turrets, tool magazines and automatic tool changers are also the best selling products of Taiwan's machine tool accessory suppliers. Taiwan's tool magazine and automatic tool change system can provide the best tool change time according to the customer's cycle time engineering, and can help customers keep up with the latest market trends. Compared with competitors worldwide, Taiwanese manufacturers know how to provide customers with comprehensive services based on local conditions, and upgrade their machine tools and accessories to the latest modern version to meet customer order requirements.
Spindles, chucks and hydraulic cylinders have also developed well in the market. Many lathes and accessories made in Taiwan are widely used in different industrial fields around the world. The CNC horizontal lathe is a traditional design and has been developed and applied for more than a century. Its horizontal feature makes the machine tool easy to use and maintain, and it has been widely used in many industries due to its convenience and structural advantages.
For users, there are no absolute pros and cons between horizontal lathes and vertical turret lathes, but only need to make a choice according to actual conditions and uses. Today's industrial automation trends are changing rapidly. In the fields of automation and 3C consumables and electrical appliances, manufacturers are more inclined to buy machining centers with robotic arm accessories to prepare for a wider range of uses in the future.
The machine tool is the most fundamental capital of the manufacturer and plays a key role in determining the final quality and output. However, components such as bearings, robots or automation equipment also play an important and independent role in the accessories market and the relevant industrial sectors.
Innovative designs and new applications will continue to motivate the industry to make full use of components that help speed up the process of vertical turret lathes. All in all, as people's manufacturing methods change, the way we use machine tools will also change to keep up with the latest manufacturing trends. Now, people in the industry are working hard to develop the most efficient and productive work model.
