CNC Turning Center The difference between CNC lathes and CNC Turning Center turning centers is a matter of concern to everyone, but many people are not able to find the detailed records. This article will take this opportunity to bring people from different aspects more reasonable understanding of the difference between CNC lathe and turning center.
CNC lathe can be divided into horizontal and vertical two major categories. The horizontal lathe has two kinds of horizontal guideway and incline guide rail. High-grade numerical control sleeper is generally used tilt rail. According to the number of turret, and can be divided into single turret CNC lathe and dual-turret CNC car, the former is two-coordinate control, the latter is 4-coordinate control. Most of the two-turret sleeper rails are inclined.
The CNC lathe is also used to process the rotating surface of the parts, just like the ordinary lathe. Generally can automatically complete the outer cylindrical surface, cone surface, spherical and thread processing, but also processing some complex rotary surface, such as double curved surface. CNC Turning Center Lathe and ordinary lathe workpiece installation method is basically the same, in order to improve processing efficiency, CNC lathe use hydraulic, pneumatic and electric Chuck.
The shape of CNC lathe is similar to that of common lathe, which is composed of bed body, spindle box, turret, feed system pressure system, cooling and lubrication system. CNC Lathe Feed system and ordinary lathe has a qualitative distinction, traditional lathe has a feed box and exchange gear rack, and CNC lathe is directly with the servo motor through the ball screw drive through the board and the turret to achieve the feed movement, so the structure of the system is greatly simplified.
(1) Vertical CNC lathe Vertical cnc lathe for short, its lathe spindle perpendicular to the horizontal plane, a large diameter circular worktable, used for clamping workpiece, flexible manufacturing system FMS. This type of machine is mainly used for machining large and complex CNC Turning Center parts with large radial size and relatively small axial dimensions.
(2) Horizontal CNC lathe is divided into horizontal CNC horizontal lathe and CNC tilting Guide horizontal lathe. The tilted guideway structure can make the lathe have more rigidity, and it is easy to eliminate the chip.
