What is CNC Turning and Milling?

With the increasing number of types of CNC lathes, the names of many lathes gradually become difficult to understand. Next, let's understand what is CNC turning-milling compound. Before we understand CNC turning-milling center compounding, we must first understand CNC lathe and CNC milling machine to see what kind of difference they have.

What is a precision CNC lathe?

Precision CNC lathe refers to a machine tool that mainly uses CNC lathe tools to turn rotating workpieces. Generally, it means that the tool of the lathe is fixed at a specific position on the machine tool, and the workpiece rotates along the axis under the clamping of the fixture, and is cut when it approaches the knife edge. Therefore, it is mainly suitable for machining shafts, discs, sleeves and other workpieces with reversed surfaces. It is the most widely used type of machine tool in machinery manufacturing and repair factories. Common CNC milling machines and drilling machines and other rotary processing machines are derived from precision CNC lathes. Its processing principle is that the workpiece is rotating and the tool is fixed.

What is a precision CNC milling machine?

Precision CNC milling machine refers to a machine tool that mainly uses milling cutters to process various surfaces on the workpiece. The performance of the precision CNC milling machine is that the rotary motion of the milling cutter is the main motion, and the workpiece and the milling cutter can move as the feed motion. That is to say, its object is fixed at a certain position of the machine tool, and the milling cutter rotates at a high speed under the clamping of the fixture. When touching the workpiece, it can process planes and grooves on its surface, and can also process various curved surfaces, gears and other CNC milling machines. It is a machine that uses a milling cutter to mill a workpiece. It can process planes, grooves, toothed parts, helical surfaces and various curved surfaces on a CNC milling machine. In addition, it can also be used to process the surface of the inverting body, the inner hole and the blocking operation. Due to the multi-tool intermittent cutting, the productivity of the CNC milling machine is high. The processing principle of the CNC milling machine is that the workpiece is fixed and the tool is rotating.

The composite performance of CNC turning and milling center

CNC turning and milling center compound, as the name suggests, is a compound machine tool that includes all the functional characteristics of CNC lathes and CNC milling machines. Its functions include turning milling compounding, turning milling compounding, milling and milling compounding. The machine tool has multiple functions. It can complete multiple tasks in one clamping, improve processing efficiency and processing accuracy, because it combines the characteristics of several CNC lathes into one machine, which greatly reduces the floor space and rent. and other capital costs. Although the unit price of CNC turning and milling is relatively high, because it can shorten the manufacturing process chain and the number of fixtures, workshop area and reduce equipment maintenance costs, it can also effectively reduce the overall investment in fixed assets from the perspective of enterprise investment, greatly reducing the cost of production operation and management of personnel and equipment.
