CNC Lathes & Turning Centers

While Turning Machines and CNC Lathes may appear similar, they denote distinct machines. Lathes typically execute turning operations, whereas turning centers excel with advanced capabilities. These sophisticated machines manage tasks such as facing, threading, knurling, drilling, boring, reaming, and taper turning.

The CNC lathe features a chuck that secures the raw material, usually a rod or cylinder, and a cutting tool that shapes it as it rotates. Both the chuck and cutting tool are mounted on a carriage that moves along the length of the material. This setup differs from Swiss-type lathes or turning centers.

The turning machine programs instructions that guide the chuck and cutting tool to create the desired shape. Operators enter these instructions using a computer interface, enabling the machine to execute them automatically.The CNC Lathe – Turning Machine is highly accurate, capable of producing complex shapes and features with precision. These machines are fast and efficient, enabling manufacturers to produce large quantities of parts quickly and with minimal waste compared to manual lathes.
