Due to the advancement in technology, CNC lathes are replacing older and more traditionally used production lathe machine models, such as the multi-spindle, at a very rapid pace. These lathes come in different sizes as they are based on the amount of production needed. For example, smaller sized lathes would typically be used for low production and can usually be found in maintenance facilities and shops whilst larger lathes are used for mass production.
But what exactly does a CNC lathe do? They slowly shred away whatever material is being used. The final result is a beautifully finished product or even a complex part. Because these machines are so versatile, they are used by a vast amount of industries, some of which include automotive, electronics, aerospace, sporting, and much more.
Because lathe work is so detailed, a qualified professional is needed to run the lathe. Nevertheless manufacturing processes are made easier with automation, which includes intricate commands and speed rates all executed by an internal computer. A few major examples of completed items created by CNC lathes include: Dining room tables, gun barrels, musical instruments, baseball bats and camshafts/crankshafts etc.
