Quality End Products With CNC Lathes
by: Scheygen Smith

A part of wood or metal can be shaped or worked on the lathe with the aid of a cutting machine. CNC lathes can be tried when best cutting tools or equipment are desired.

Cylindrical or symmetrical materials can be generated using metal processing tools called lathes. These tools have gone a long way from just cutting metals. Nowadays, they are also used for wood, plastic, and other materials.

The material is placed in the device of the lathe called chuck, used for holding the materials. Rotating the chuck in three dimensions, does the work exactly as it should be done. The end product is precisely what is desired.

Pieces of wood, metal or other materials of uniform sizes and shapes can be cut more precisely using CNC lathes. Depending upon the type of job to be accomplished and the type of material, lathes are available with horsepower ranging from 15 to 40 hp. There are models that come with more than one mode. These lathes can be rigged to perform totally manual work. They can also be arranged to do all automated job. They can also be in any combination in between. The flexibility of good CNC lathes to be arranged or fixed in place provides wide range of options.

The use of CNC lathes involves considering some important points. The rpm of the chuck is referred to as the rotating speed to which the lathe is set. High precision shapes are made possible by really high speed rotations. The risk comes in making the slightest mistake of setting these speeds resulting in defective pieces. It is most advisable then, to give particular caution by using lower speeds for the machine to rotate.

The life of the cutting tools in lathes is determined by the cutting depth to be achieved in the process. The deeper the cutting depths, the speedier the lathe functions. This speedy deep cutting will most likely wear and tear the tool fast also. Setting the depth to a smaller value is most advisable.

The quality of the end product is also affected by the sending speed of the lathes. The speed of the process is directly proportional to the sending speed of the lathes. The higher the sending speed, the quicker the process.

Producing larger quantities with less effort is the obvious benefit of CNC lathes. Minimal human intervention reduces quality issues of the end-products.
