LATHES

Lathes are cold finishing turning machines which shape an object using hardened steel, carbide, ceramic or other types of tooling. Lathes rotate the workpiece while the tool is moved across the work piece to cut out a specific shape or surface. There are a variety of different types of lathes with the most common being the engine lathe. Engine lathes are used to machine the circumference or face of the workpiece. Other lathe types include boring, facing, roll, and right angle. Traditional lathes are equipped with a cross slide or compound which holds the toolholder and turning tool. The cross slide can be traversed the length of the lathe bed, perpendicular to the lathe bed or both motions simultaneously. The lathe compound is driven by an Acme screw at various, operator selected speeds. This ability to traverse at a selected speed provides the lathe operator with the capability to machine a thread into the workpiece in addition to machining specific shapes. Lathes can be equipped with CNC (computer numerical control) for extreme accuracy. Modern CNC lathes are often classified as machining centers because they can perform other machining operations in addition to turning. Lathes are generally sized by their swing and distance between centers. Swing is the overall diameter of the work piece that can be rotated in the machine over the lathe ways. A second critical swing dimension is the maximum diameter that can be rotated over the cross slide. The distance between centers is the maximum length of the opening between the head stock and the movable tail stock. Contact Casey Equipment for a quote on Used Lathes for sale.
