Review on Inverted Vertical Turning Machine

For every precision CNC machined part developed, there goes an immense amount of time and effort in getting the turning step right. A slight deviation in the speeds or feeds and your end product wont match your initial idea and laid out plan. Turning process is nothing new, though. Its history goes back to the early 19th century. In fact, every machinist started with a horizontal lathe and eventually mastered the art of machining!

Turning process isnt limited to only horizontal settings. Vertical turning is just as common as the horizontal one. But, there is another process that has not been here for long, and is still underrated- Inverted Vertical Turning! Lets learn more about it and see how it could enhance your machining process.

The Difference Between Vertical Turning and Inverted Vertical Turning

As the name suggests, the inverted vertical turning process is the exact opposite of the vertical turning one. In the regular vertical lathe, the cutting tool clamps down from its position at the top of the machine. It cuts through the parts that are attached to the chuck at the bottom. In this case, gravity helps the cutting tool to glide smoothly through the part giving us a smoother finish.

On the other hand, inverted vertical lathe has the chuck positioned at the top of the machine and the parts attached to it point towards the bottom. Here, we move the part towards the cutting tool located at the bottom of the machine, exactly opposite of what we do in the case of a vertical lathe.

In easier words, the basic concept involving the inverted vertical turning process is to simply flip the conventional vertical design to 180 degrees for an improved spindle work in both x and z-axes. Nowadays, precision CNC machine shops are adopting inverted vertical turning machines seeing their ability to handle every production range- small, medium, or large- with ultimate precision.
