Slant bed CNC lathe is a kind of machine tool with a 30-degree slant direction. High accuracy, high speed, and high-velocity spindle. Most appropriate for the manufacture of medium-sized components such as aircraft, automobiles, glasses although lighters. The slant bed CNC lathe adopts rough direction, gear shifting, and hydraulic tightening.
Flat Bed Lathe:
It can treat products that are both lightweight and heavy-duty with precise precision. Flat bed lathes have a high machining range, stability, and productivity. This type of lathe can only be handled by skilled professionals because it is a heavily equipped machine. It may cause injury if it is not operated properly.
Slant Bed Lathe:
It’s suggested to use only with light materials. Thanks to their machining power, the slant bed lathe has a lower range of efficiency. It is an easy-to-use lathe where machining is much easier.
Differentiation between the flat bed and slant bed CNC lathe
Flatbed CNC lathes are parallel to aircraft and field floor with two lines. Slant bed CNC lathes, two walls, and the ground plane intersecting through a bevel angle are 30 °, 45 °, 60 °, 75 °.
The bed level CNC lathe bed was a rectangular, slant bed CNC lathe bed triangle right arched from the machine side. Clearly, at the very same rail width, Further CNC machine may be positioned by the inclined bed of the X carriage than the bed stage higher, in functional context lathe.
· Cutting rigidity comparison
The bed cross-section area of CNCcentersis of the same width as bed level which implies bending resistance and torsional strength.
Machine CNC turning core is cut diagonally above the workpiece, aligned with the path of cutting effects of gravity and workpiece, the spindle working fairly smoothly, very easy to trigger vibration cutting, flatbed CNC lathe cutting device and workpiece cutting force produced by gravity to the workpiece 90 °, simple to trigger a vibration.
· Machining accuracy comparison
CNC lathe screw drive is a high-precision ball screw, a lead screw and a nut drive gap between the small ones, but it is not because there is no gap, but as long as there is a gap, whenever the screw is in one path and then in the reverse gear when the backlash inevitably occurs, the repeatability of the CNC lathes affects the accuracy of the machine.
Gap slanting bed CNC lathe will directly influence the shape of the X-direction ball screw, with gravity working directly on the axial screw, so that the backlash becomes almost negligible. The X-direction of the flatbed CNC lathe without the axial screw is the influence of gravity, the gap could not be eliminated directly. This is designed to provide slanting bed precision CNC lathes with inherent advantages.
Although taking into consideration all styles, a flatbed is more desirable when it comes to the need for further building. And placing capital in a flatbed lathe is relatively safer for a major company.
