Turret Type Mill Turn Centers

A turn and mill machine is also known as a CNC turning center; this is a machine tool capable of both turning and milling functions and rotates a work piece on an axis of rotation to perform various, machining operations such as cutting and turning assisted by the existence of turret. These kind of machining tasks are processed with turret tools that are applied to the work piece and to create an object with symmetry with the axis which is driven by the primary spindle and assisted by live tools. 

In conventional custom, mill turn machines with turret are categorized into two main types according to the way that clamp the work pieces. Those are vertical lathe and the horizontal counterparts. For the vertical version, the work piece is clamped vertically and the cutting tool is thus installed the same direction so that the machining is conducted vertically. This way the clamping is much more stern and fixed due to the gravity effect compared to the horizontal methodology and manufacturers of vertical turning machines usually made their vertical turning machines into great manufacturing facilities for users in a variety of industrial sectors that pursue for high precision, such as automotive industry, aerospace sector, sport equipment application, and other fields with larger size work pieces.

Servo power turret

Regarding the mill turn machines with turrets to be functional, power turret is a must. Only with the technology of the power turret can a turning center be possible. Many of these power turrets are driven by single motor with servo features, which can assure the best machining effects and save the optimal energy consumption; at the mean time, they can also provide great rigidity onto the work pieces, rendering an ideal cutting capabilities. Besides, tool magazine and the automatic too changer (ATC) are also the best sellers of Taiwanese machine tool accessory suppliers.

Taiwan’s tool magazine and ATC system offers the optimal tool to tool time to customers based on their cycle time engineering, and can help manufacturers keep up with the order demands. With the vertical clamping mechanism, the spindles of vertical turning lathes are also located behind the chuck, while some may be belt-driven, and some may be other types of driving mechanisms. Like other milling machines and machine centers, turning lathes can also be equipped with power tools as well as too magazines to boost its functionality and versatility, granting wider processing possibility to users.

Modernized processing

Power turret is a modern and standard accessory of many CNC turning machines, and as one of the most important accessories to the users of CNC lathes, Taiwanese suppliers aim at this business and have developed many well known power turret and power tool companies that supports the demands form lathe users all over the world market.

Many of these power turrets are driven by single motor with servo features, which can assure the best machining effects and save the optimal energy consumption; at the mean time, they can also provide great rigidity onto the work pieces, rendering an ideal cutting performances. Another type of the versatile machinery that can proceed drilling and tapping (and sometimes even boring) tasks are the machining centers. Machining center is a highly developed machine tool that can deal with many precision machining tasks all at once.

Inception of mill turn functions

Machine center is developed from milling machines at the mid of the last century and since then, the development of this specific type of machine tools goes well in the industry, and after that, machine centers are widely applied in all kinds of industries, contributing a wide range of industrial efforts. In regard to milling process, it is the process of machining that utilizes spinning tools to remove work piece materials by advancing a tool into one or several work pieces.

Special functionality

This machining method could be done on different directions. Besides turning, milling covers a wide variety of various operations and ranges a wide scale from single tiny parts to heavy and large milling operation tasks. Similar to turning, milling is one of the most usually adopted machining methods that render precision tolerances. Due to its practical and productive values, the development of milling method is highly popular in the industrial world as well as the market. Its productive and effective nature for rendering work pieces with complex profiles is comparatively hard to achieve by conventional turning lathes. With this expectation, the following development and the idea of machine centers are thus gradually formed.

Terminology

Why people refer to “machining center” is a topic in machine tool history. This term can be used to describe a wide variety of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) drilling and milling machineries that are accommodated with several critical but sometimes optional accessories equipped together with the machine body itself, such as tool magazine, ATC (automatic tool changer), power tool turret, CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine), multi-axis working tables, and other models.
