Turning is one of the most common of metal cutting operations. In turning, a work piece is rotated about its axis as single point cutting tools are fed into it, machining away unwanted material and creating the desired part. Turning can be carried out on both external and internal surfaces to produce an axially-symmetrical contoured part. Vertical turning is carried out in a machine which has its spindle aligned perpendicular to the ground.
Working of a Vertical Turning Machine
In a vertical turning machine, the main spindle with the work piece carries out all the necessary movements in the machine axes. The traverse from collection point to machining point of the work piece and the removal of the finished component, are carried out at higher speeds. The tool is firmly fixed below the work piece and it is constrained in such a way that it is not capable of any kind of movement during the vertical turning operation.
Advantages and Applications of Vertical Turning Machines
Dry machining without the usage of a coolant is always considered to be a complicated process until the advent of vertical turning machines. In a vertical turning machine as the tool is securely positioned below the work piece, dry machining can be easily carried out. This arrangement of tool below the work piece also aids the easy removal of metal chips offering ideal chip flow conditions. One more major advantage offered by a vertical turning machine is its stability. The machine is also comparatively more capable of resistance against vibrations than similar turning machines. Some of the other advantages of vertical turning machines are its high rigidity, high traverse speeds, shorter strokes, low idle times, etc.
Vertical turning machines are the machines with very high productivity when it comes to machining of work pieces with circular cross section. Usually vertical turning machines are used for processing large batches of high quality metal components. Some of the parts produced by a vertical turning machine are: gearwheels, sprockets, sliding sleeves, pump rings, link pins, connecting rods, rockers, bearing ringsand piston rings etc.
