Traditional CNC turning machines can only process simple turning parts, but with the development of science and technology, accessories of many industries need more complex structures, which requires the use of turning, milling, boring, drilling, tapping and other processes. However, more processes require more fixture tools to complete, and the processing efficiency is very low, and the accuracy is also reduced a lot. A problem in a certain part of the mass production process will result in the obsolescence of the product.
To solve the problem of accuracy and processing efficiency, a machine for processing multiple processes at one time has appeared, that is, a turn-milling complex machine.This is what we usually call turn-milling composite machining ( Mill-Turn Maching for short).
CNC Mill Turn machining, or multi–axis turning, is a computer numerically controlled machining process used to produce complex parts from a wide range of materials. CNC mill/turn centers combine the capabilities of a machining center (CNC milling) with the machining of a CNC lathe (CNC turning) and provide multiple axes of movement and full synchronisation between the machine’s axes.The CNC mill/turn process offers cutting edge technology with extensive capabilities, which can accommodate complex shapes, drill, tap, cut and thread all in one operation.
Features and Benefits of CNC Mill Turn Machining
CNC Mill Turn machining is a process that has many benefits for manufacturers. Being able to produce complex parts from a range of materials in a single CNC machine, the timeline for production can be significantly reduced from that of a machines setup for individual processes. CNC Mill Turn machining C will also provide efficiency in the amount of labour needed to produce the part with less setups and less time programming and preparing tools.
The centre of the CNC Mill Turn machine is the main axis, or spindle. This is flanked by two axial sections, controlled by servo motors. The CNC Mill Turn capabilities expand further, with the many additional features and tooling options.
Vertical CNC Mill Turn Machine
Vertical CNC Mill Turn machines offer additional flexibility with the option to work with both large and small stock. The structure of the vertical CNC Mill Turn Machines have a vertical spindle, allowing for the workpiece to be positioned underneath the spindle for continuous machining. This offers advantages to certain components which are difficult to produce in traditional/horizontal Lathes.
Advantages of CNC Mill Turn Machining
CNC Mill Turn machining offers a number of advantages over traditional or manual machining. It offers high speed, exceptional accuracy and repeatability. The parts can be completed in one operation from start to finish, resulting in lower production costs and less downtime due to reduced setup time and less preparation. This also allows for machining of complex shapes which cannot be produced with traditional methods. Furthermore CNC Mill Turn machines are capable of high speed cutting, while producing a good surface finish.
Materials For Turn Mill Machining
CNC Mill Turn machining can be used to produce precision machining parts from a variety of materials, including metals such as aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium, and non–metallic materials such as plastics, composites and ceramics. This allows for a wide range of components to be produced with the one process.
CNC Mill Turn machines are used to produce highly accurate and complex parts for a wide range of industries. Examples of products include transmission shafts, engine shafts, drive shafts, motor and pump shafts, pistons, spindles, and aerospace components.
