What Is A Lathe Machine?


    The lathe is a type of machine tool for wood and metal, which fixes the workpiece on the main shaft and rotates at high speed to process the cutting tool in the feed motion. A lathe is a powerful tool that is driven by an electric motor to rotate the spindle through a belt and gear transmission system, which drives the workpiece on the spindle chuck to rotate, and then uses the turning tool fixed on the tool post to perform turning. The main workpiece is round rods. The cutting work includes turning the end face, inner and outer diameter, arc, taper, drilling, boring, eccentricity, embossing, cutting, grooving, and turning thread.

    Most lathes are equipped with a variety of special tools, which can complete internal and external machining, drilling, threading, cutting grooves, end face machining, turning blanks, turning external circles, drilling center holes, turning holes, reaming, turning tapers, turning forming surfaces, knurling, coiled springs and more processing procedures. There are two common types of lathes: metal lathes and wood lathes.

    A metal lathe is a machine tool that uses turning, cutting, grinding or special machining methods to process various metal workpieces to obtain the required geometric shape, dimensional accuracy, and surface quality. Metal lathes are the most widely used and most numerous machine tool category. There are many classification methods for metal lathes, and the most commonly used classification method is to classify according to the processing nature of the machine and the tools used. In addition, it can be classified according to the degree of versatility, the working accuracy of the machine tool, weight and size, the number of main organs of the machine tool, and the degree of automation. The asset scale of the metal lathe industry ranks first among all sub-sectors of machine tools, which is much higher than that of other sub-sectors.

What Is A Wood Lathe?


     The wood lathe is a type of popular power woodworking tool that rotates the workpiece on its axis to perform various machining operations, including turning, cutting, sanding, broaching, carving, knurling, drilling, deformation or facing with cutters that are applied to the workpiece to create an object with symmetry about an axis of rotation.

    There are two common types of power woodturning lathe machines: fully automatic CNC wood lathe and semi-automatic wood lathe. An automatic wood lathe is refer to a type of power woodworking tool with computer numerical control, all the work is automatic from the beginning to the end. A semi-automatic lathe machine is as same as a fully automatic lathe machine but the feed work is finished manually.

    A woodworking lathe consists of a bed, a tailstock installed at the end of the guide rail of the bed, a tool holder installed at the middle of the guide rail of the bed, a headstock installed at the head of the bed, the main spindle installed on the headstock, and the chuck on it, the motor installed on the headstock, and the variable speed transmission device installed on the motor spindle.

    A wood lathe is also known as a woodturning machine, woodturning lathe, woodturning tool, woodworking lathe machine, woodturning lathe machine, and lathe machine for wood.


What Is A CNC Wood Lathe? 


    CNC wood lathe is a type of automatic woodworking tool with a Computer Numerical Controlled system for rough and fine turning blanks of the outer circle, inner hole, end face, tapered surface, grooving, and cutting to realize fully automated machining operation for one-time finished woodworking projects making.

    A CNC wood lathe will complete the manufacturing process of a piece of wood without human intervention according to the CNC programming. After the program instructions are input into the memory of the CNC control system, they are compiled and calculated by the computer, and the information is transmitted to the driver to drive the motor through the CNC controller to turn wood with the designed files.

    A CNC wood lathe is also known as computer numerical controlled wood lathe, computer-controlled wood lathe, C and C wood lathe, CNC woodworking lathe, CNC woodturning tool, CNC woodturning lathe, CNC wood turning lathe machine, CNC wood lathe machine, CNC lathe machine for wood, CNC turning center.
