CNC Lathe Service and CNC Lathe Machining Services

IMS offers CNC lathe services and precision CNC machining of polyurethane wheels, rollers, and parts. Utilizing multiple IMS CNC lathes, IMS advanced CNC turning, boring and milling centers can accommodate almost any size wheel, roller or part.

IMS in-house precision machining capabilities allow for a 100% production of polyurethane parts from start to finish, including the machining of custom steel or aluminum:

  • Hubs
  • Inserts
  • Cores
  • Bearings
  • Bushings

IMS CNC lathes are also proficient of turning and milling cast polyurethanes for use as prototypes or in limited production. Because urethanes have a lower thermal conductivity than metal, they are prone to softening, melting and distortion during machining. 

Cost optimizations for turning include:

  • Reducing complexity
  • Minimizing the amount of material removed
  • Avoiding difficult shapes such as very long thin structures.

Design Deliberations 

  • The turning process applies pressure to the material, weak shapes that may flex can be hard to machine, such as long thin structures. 
  • Turning generates a cut surface with fine helical feed marks resulting from the rotation of the part and movement of the cutter – consider specifying the desired surface roughness.
  • Bored holes become difficult when the ratio of the depth to diameter is high.

With IMS CNC lathe machining services, you can rest assured that your polyurethane wheels, rollers, and parts will be machined to your exact specifications efficiently and accurately.

We can quote your job using conventional CAD files or you can use our unique free CAD software where you can: design your part quickly and easily, get instant pricing, and order online.

CAD drawings will first be rendered of your part and checked for quality. Your part will then be constructed by our machine using the high-speed and accuracy offered by IMS CNC lathes.

The Primary Objective of CNC Lathe Machinist

The primary objective of CNC lathe machinist is to ensure the machine tools, instruments, tools and accessories in good working condition. It is also necessary to ensure safety to both the machine tools and the operator. The accuracy and efficiency of the machine tools and the instruments are also to be maintained properly. By performing maintenance, we can avoid accidents inside the workshop and increase the production capacity.

All the machine tools are driven by electrical motors. It is necessary that the switches, fuse, the connections, and other controls should be in order. Professional machinist attention should also be taken to keep in good conditions the parts used for transmitting power from the motor – gears, chain drive, belt drive etc.,

Available CNC Lathe shop for Industrial uses

There are many CNC lathe shops that have broad ranges of horizontal lathes and offer a variety of bore sizes, bed lengths, and optional features. This variety allows us to create custom lathe solutions capable of meeting any production need. In fact, many parts can be completed on a single machine.

The IMS’ friendly design features enable the ability to hold tight tolerances and eliminates the need for separate finishing or grinding operations.

The most common industrial CNC machines in order of units made are the following:

  • Router
  • Plasma Cutter
  • Milling Machine
  • Lathe
  • CNC Laser Cutter
  • 3D Printer (industrial, sintered metal)
  • Mill-turn multi-axis machines
  • Surface grinder
  • Tool & cutter grinder
  • Multi-axis machines and specialty machines

IMS has a variety of CNC lathe machine shop, including used CNC lathes manufactured by a selection of manufacturers. This CNC machine shop is great tools for increasing your efficiency while guaranteeing a balanced object. We are proud to be one of the leading industries in used of CNC lathe and we look forward to helping you find the machine that best suits your needs.

If you need a CNC lathe services IMS are one of the most capable and affordable sources and we can get the job done right. We have a wide variety of materials, a state-of-the-art machine and industriously follow all design specifications.

We continually strive to improve and optimize our processes and maximize customer convenience. Our customers range from inventors to businesses to government agencies. We are attentive on the quality of our products and customer services.

CNC Lathe

The ever-increasing use of CNC in the industry has created a need for personnel who are knowledgeable about and capable of preparing the programs which guide the machine tools to produce parts to the required shape and accuracy. The term numerical control is a widely accepted and commonly used term in the machine tool industry. Numerical control (NC) enables an operator to communicate with machine tools through a series of numbers and symbols. NC which quickly became Computer Numerical Control (CNC) has brought tremendous changes to the metalworking industry

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) is one in which the functions and motions of a machine tool are controlled by means of a prepared program containing coded alphanumeric data. CNC lathe can control the motions of the workpiece or tool, the input parameters such as feed, depth of cut, speed, and the functions such as turning the spindle on/off, turning coolant on/off.

The primary task of a CNC lathe is to generate cylindrical workpieces. The process of machining a workpiece to the required shape and size by moving the cutting tool either parallel or perpendicular to the axis of rotation of the workpiece is known as turning. In this process, excess unwanted metal is removed. The machine tool useful in performing plain turning, taper turning, thread cutting, chamfering and knurling by adopting the above method is known as a lathe.

The application of CNC lathe machine

The applications of CNC lathe include both for a machine tool as well as non-machine tool areas. In the machine tool category, CNC is widely used for lathe, drill press, milling machine, grinding unit, laser, sheet-metal press working machine, tube bending machine etc.

Highly automated machine tools such as turning center and machining center which change the cutting tools automatically under CNC control have been developed. In the non-machine tool category, CNC applications include welding machines (arc and resistance), coordinate measuring machine, electronic assembly, tape laying and filament winding machines for composites etc.
