Twin-Spindle Turning Centers

a twin-spindle turning center is also called a twin-spindle turning machine, which is a machine tool that rotates a work piece on an axis of rotation to perform various machining operations such as cutting, knurling, sanding, drilling, deformation, facing, and turning while there is another spindle that can do the similar things but with different purposes; such machining is conducted with 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.

in regard to the usual circumstances, turning machines are categorized into two main types according to the way that clamp the work pieces. those are vertical lathe and horizontal counterparts. for the former, the work piece is clamped vertically and the cutting tool is thus installed in 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 high precision, and further, with the twin spindle design, the working efficiency and productivity can be doubled as much as it can.

in the subsidiary of turning center, a twin-spindle turning center is also called a twin-spindle turning machine, which is a machine tool that rotates a work piece on an axis of rotation to perform various machining operations such as cutting, knurling, sanding, drilling, deformation, facing, and turning while there is another spindle that can do the similar things but with different purposes; such machining is conducted with 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. in regard to the usual circumstances, turning machines are categorized into two main types according to the way that clamp the work pieces. those are vertical lathe and horizontal counterparts.

for the former, the work piece is clamped vertically and the cutting tool is thus installed in the same direction so that the machining is conducted vertically. by this way the clamping of the mechanism 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 high precision, and moreover, with the twin spindle design, the working efficiency and productivity can be doubled as much as it can because of the additional machining capacity.

assistance support

moreover, in addition to the power turret, tool magazine and the automatic too changer (atc) is also the best sellers of many machine tool accessory suppliers for the twin spindle models. many 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. compared with the worldwide competitors, taiwanese know-how to provide comprehensive services to global customers with the best planning according to the local circumstances, hence the productions that are equipped with the machine tools or accessories are actually face lifted to the latest version that is modern to the order demands.

chuck and cylinder

spindles and chuck and the corresponding hydraulic cylinders are also well developed in taiwan. together with the cnc turning machine market, there are a bunch of lathe products and accessories that are widely spread in the world across different industrial sectors and applications. at the same time, the cnc horizontal lathes belong to conventional design that has been developed and massively applied for over a century. the horizontal nature makes the turning machine easy to be used and maintained, and are used even wider in a lot of industries due to their convenience and structure. therefore, there is no standard answer to either horizontal or vertical is better for users, but only about the application sectors.

conventionally, in ordinary circumstances, turning machines with twin spindles are not so common but if here we only consider turning machines with turrets then the classification could be specific and clear. they are categorized into two main types according to the way that clamp the work pieces. those are vertical lathe and horizontal counterparts. the clamping system and power turret are two related accessories. 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.

similarly, 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 possibilities to users. 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. as a result, with the double spindle, or say, twin spindle, the working area, and productivity are thus enhanced on a very significant scale which would bring significant productivity to the business owners.

together with the automation, twin spindle turning center is a very efficient tools/ facilities for the production lines. automation is the future trend for almost all the factories of the manufacturing industry in the world due to many practical issues such as the lack of manpower, lack of talents, increasing wage levels, environment issues, occupational standard requirements, etc. today, plant owners have to cope with the standard that is getting stricter than before and keep up with the latest manufacturing trends, so that many of them choose to rely on automation rather than human operators. however, this technology requires much other technical advancement and is still not mature enough to be fully automatic.

as a matter of fact, human workers are still very important and their competitiveness is not replaced by the components no matter how those components and parts are exquisite. it is a good prospect that people can sue those technologies and work with automation techniques to boost their precision accuracy while keeps their own competitiveness at their professional and brands.
