The turning center is based on the lathe, and further adds the functions of power milling, drilling, boring, and sub-spindle, so that the two and cnc brass parts machining processes of the turning center can be completed in one go.
Turning centers can be divided into two types of turning centers according to the turret type: comb type and turret type. Let us take a look together!
The comb type is to arrange multiple power tools or fixed tools on three surfaces in different directions. The tools are changed by moving the coordinates of the workbench to complete the machining actions of end face, radial and eccentric turning, milling, drilling and boring. The limitation is that there is a conflict between the size of the processing work and the number of tools. When the workpiece is large, the number of tools needs to be reduced, which is not conducive to the processing of complex processes of large workpieces. The advantage is that the tool change speed is fast and the processing time is short, making it an efficient choice for processing small workpieces.
The turret turning center is equipped with a power turret on the workbench, which can support various heavy machining companies and machining actions on the end face and radial direction. Through the lifting and lowering of the power turret (Y-axis function), the end face and radial eccentricity and various eccentricities of the turned parts can be completed. A kind of processing action. After processing a process, the turret rotates and replaces other tools for processing to complete complex processing steps. The number of power knives can be more or less. Depending on the size of the machine tool, the turret will occupy a relatively large area. space, and a sub-spindle can be installed at the tailstock position to simplify processing.
In short, the turning center is a composite turning machine that can greatly reduce the processing time and does not require re-clamping to meet the requirements of improving processing accuracy.
