2 & 4 AXIS MACHINED LATHE PARTS
2-axis and 4-axis machined lathe parts are produced using computer numerical control (CNC) machines that are designed for turning and milling operations. Here are some services that can be offered for each:
2-axis machined lathe parts:
- Turning: the process of removing material from a rotating workpiece to create a cylindrical shape. This is the primary operation performed on a lathe.
- Facing: the process of cutting a flat surface on the end of a workpiece.
- Drilling: the process of creating a hole in a workpiece.
4-axis machined lathe parts:
- Turning: as with 2-axis lathes, 4-axis machines can perform turning operations.
- Milling: the process of removing material with a rotating cutter while the workpiece is held in a fixed position. 4-axis machines can perform milling operations by rotating the workpiece around two additional axes.
- Tapping: the process of creating internal threads in a workpiece.
In addition to these services, lathe parts can be produced in a variety of materials, such as steel, aluminum, brass, and plastics, depending on the application. Custom designs and finishes, including anodizing and powder coating, can also be provided.
Benefits of our lathe cnc service
Here are some potential benefits of 2-axis and 4-axis machined lathe parts:
Benefits of 2-axis machined lathe parts:
- High precision: CNC lathes can produce very precise parts with tight tolerances, which can be essential for many applications.
- Fast production: CNC lathes can be programmed to produce parts quickly and accurately, which can help reduce production times and costs.
- Versatility: 2-axis lathes can perform a wide range of operations, including turning, facing, and drilling, which can make them suitable for a variety of applications.
- Cost-effective: CNC lathes can be cost-effective for both large and small production runs, especially when compared to manual lathes or other manufacturing methods.
Benefits of 4-axis machined lathe parts:
- Greater flexibility: 4-axis lathes can perform turning and milling operations on the same machine, which can eliminate the need to transfer parts between machines or perform additional operations manually.
- More complex parts: 4-axis lathes can produce more complex parts with more intricate geometries and shapes, which can be essential for certain applications.
- Reduced setup times: 4-axis lathes can be set up quickly and easily, which can help reduce overall production times and costs.
- Enhanced efficiency: The ability to perform multiple operations in one setup can improve overall efficiency and throughput.
