A bar automatic lathe is a machine tool, which is used to mass produce long materials. A bar automatic lathe follows the basic principle of a lathe.
The structure of a bar automatic lathe
A bar automatic lathe is made out of a massive base frame, upon which a machine bed is built. The spindle is hollow on this machine, and the raw material is guided through it during processing. An automatic clamping and release system allows for this machine to be used for series components. Just like universal lathes, the work is done by a tool that is guided towards the workpiece via a tool carriage. With a tool magazine, complex processes on long pieces of material can be undertaken. Particularly efficient machines are the multi-spindle bar automatic lathes. They can process several bars in one go, and they are very well suited for processing large numbers of workpieces.
Where is a bar automatic lathe used?
A bar automatic lathe is used in production facilities, that want to produce a series of complex machines. They are a type of lathe. This means, that the products that they produce are always of the highest quality and dimensions. These products are usually used in machine construction. Typical products that are used on these machines include crankshafts, camshafts, push rods and other components for engines. Bar automatic lathes are cutting machines, which can be operated without the need for continual monitoring and control. They require a lot of cleaning and need to have an integrated quality monitoring system. The tools used on a bar automatic lathe can wear out due to this machine's high output at high speeds. Regular quality control with professional protocol is important within the area where a bar automatic lathe is used.
What types of bar automatic lathes are there?
Bar automatic lathes are available in a variety of sizes, from table machines up to those that are several metres long. The most commonly used are the mid-sized bar automatic lathes, which can economically produce a large range and amount of high-quality bar material.
