CNC lathes form metal into components with rotational symmetry has a more overarching function than the production of particularly aesthetic chair and table legs, or stair railings. The importance of round axles and shafts were first realised with the development of the first transport carriages. Thereby, the turning lathes were very important for technical development. Browse through wide selection of used CNC lathes from the second hand market which are available to bid or buy. Find CNC lathes from manufacturers like DMG Mori Seiki, Heinemann, Doosan, Index, Gildemeister, Hitachi, Lux and many more from the below list.
Metal CNC Lathe
During the industrialisation turning (especially that of metal) was very important for e.g. the production of the steam engine and its associated components. Since that time, mechanical engineers are the most important employees for machine construction companies. CNC lathe machines are currently the most developed technology, originating from the turning lathes.
A CNC lathe differs from the conventional, manually operated lathe, mainly because of its cover and its programmable controls. At its core, all the CNC lathe parts are available and a frame holds together the whole structure. It has to be stable enough to be able to carry the heavy weight of the components - as well as the CNC lathe accessories - and control the vibrations. The materials used are either cast metal or welded pieces. Depending on the size of the lathe, an additional cement foundation could be necessary. The lathe’s bed is what hosts all of the moveable components of the lathe. It is either made out of cast metal or a metal block. The feed is electrically, mechanically or hydraulically operated and it moves the workpiece carriage, which is secured by clamps. A bezel is used to ensure that very long workpieces are stable. The headstock and tailstock are used to clamp in the workpiece. The structure of a CNC lathe machine is more advanced, with a tool carriage and automatic steering. This means that the turning process is controlled through a programme. CNC lathe programming can either be determined by the machine itself, or written externally and transferred to the lathe through an interface.

Materials Processed with CNC Lathe
Almost all materials can be processed on a lathe CNC. Even though most CNC lathes are designed to process metals, they can also be used for wood and plastic workpieces. Even stone, like marble, can be processed using a special CNC lathe. It is always necessary to have undertaken special training to be able to programme and monitor the turning process.
CNC Lathe Manufacturers
There are numerous manufacturers of CNC lathes, including small CNC lathe, CNC mini lathe and vertical CNC lathe. These machines are designed to process highly precise workpieces. Thereby, it is recommended to check the quality of the brand. Recommended suppliers of CNC lathe machines include TRAUB, DECKEL MAHO, GILDEMEISTER, MAZAK, OKUMA, EMCO, INDEX and SMS.
