CNC Turning Machining Knowledge Creatingway
CNC Turning has three different machine types: horizontal turning, vertical turning, and inverted vertical turning. Different types have different advantages. It is the standard according to which we can judge what kind we should use and how to use it.
Anyway, all those three machine types have the same point, since their mother is the same word – turning. This same point is they are consist of the same basic components, such as headstock, carriage.
So when we receive a new project from customers, how we decide which kind of turning we should use? It depends on many factors. First, we have to check the drawing and read customer’s requirement carefully,
Below Is Several Types of CNC Turning Machining Knowledge
As we know, during turning, there are many chips coming out and it is a difficult task to clean them. But for horizontal turning, it can pull the chip away from the part by gravity. Under the action of gravity, all the chips fall down into the chip conveyor or bin. Also, it is more flexible by longer bed lengths relative to spindle size. So it is easier to automate since the spindles and tailstock are at opposite machine sides. What’s more, the turret can be positioned in such a way as to present minimal clearance issues.
Opposite to the horizontal turning, chips will be an issue. If the part is concave, it can trap the chips internally. And if the chips fall down into the spindle itself, the guarding has to be extremely efficient. But it has a big advantage that horizontal turning could not meet. It can help seat the part into workholding by gravity. When we do some small part size, it is obviously to use the vertical turning, since gravity can work for us. When we put the part in the chuck, it seats itself
Inverted Vertical Turning
For the inverted vertical turning, it reserves the position of the spindle and chuck.
Now it should be much clearer about those three turning machine types. It is not a difficult question when we choose which one we should use. Because of professional, the fine distinction can be found out.
