    Turning Centers

    - A Turning center, also known as a lathe, is a type of machine that holds a cylindrical, tube like, workpiece at one or both ends and rotates it while cutting tools shave off layers of material. Lathes produce cylindrical shaped parts, which typically have straight sides and circular ends. Lathes can produce a wide variety of parts, including complex parts with close tolerances or specifications. There are two types of Turning Centers: Vertical Turning Lathes and Horizontal Turning Lathes. While the Horizontal Lathe is more commonly used, sometimes it is necessary to use a Vertical Lathe for larger, heavier work pieces or floorspace constraints. The only difference between the two lathes is the angle at which the material is cut.

     

  • Turn Mill Centers

    - Turn Mill Centers offer the benefits of both milling and turning in one machining center for optimal results. This type of CNC machine tool has many benefits because it merges multiple operations. For example, it reduces setup time, cuts down on operation time, and increases the quality of the part.

    Swiss Style Turning

    s - Swiss Style Turning machines are perfect for fast, high-production components that vary in size, from small complex parts to long parts that are normally too difficult to machine in a standard turning center. Swiss Style Turning machines are extremely accurate because the material is fed through the guide bushing where it is more rigid, providing a stable platform for fast cycle times and producing intricate workpieces. These machines are commonly used in the aerospace and medical industries to produce high-precision parts with tight tolerances.

     

  • Bridge Mills & Gantry Machines

    - These operate in a similar fashion as vertical machining center machines do. The only difference is that they are bigger and produce extremely large parts such as automobile frames and airplane wings.

     

  • Metrology Machines

    - Metrology machines use advanced 3-D software to inspect the accuracy of machined parts in order to achieve strict tolerances. By ensuring that the tolerances have been met, the number of rejected parts is reduced, which contributes to a decrease of unnecessary operating expenditures.

     

  • Doosan VC630 5-axis machine tool

    5-Axis Machines

    - 5-axis machines are able to move in different directions on five axes simultaneously, or with a 4+1 or 3+2 set up. While this capability increases efficiency, it also leads to reduced set-up times of complex parts, fewer errors and quicker production times.
