Over 20 years experience to make the lathe machine in south of china

Mastering Thread Cutting A Guide to Lathe Machine Operations

Guangzhou South CNC Machine Tools created in 1984, firstly to machine the casting base and metal accessories and so on in early during beginning business. And later we did assemble the manual lathe machine and test it and sell it. After we did more and more manual lathe machine, we have strong design team and enough experience, then we made the assembly for CNC flat bed heavy duty lathe machine. Nowadays, the slanting bed is more popular and more popular, so we also develop this kind of lathe machine and CNC machining center in order to meet customer requirement.

The lathe is a very important metal cutting machine tool, occupy 30%-50% of the total number of machine tools. It is a machine tool used for turning processing. According to their different application and structures, they can be divided into various types of lathes, horizontal lathe, floor lathe, vertical lathe, copied lathe, turret lathe, automatic lathe, multi-tool semi-automatic lathe.

The lathe main machining performance will be as below:
a) Straight head cylindrical for the outer circle turning;
b) The outer circle turning for the elbow tool;
c) The end face turning for the elbow tool;
d) The outer circle turning for the left offset tool;
e) The end face turning for the right offset tool;
f) Cutting the groove for cutting for the cutting tool;
g) Boring tool boring;
h) Thread tool turning thread;
i)customized tool turning for special surface;

Characteristics of lathe processing:
1) Lathe processing range is very wide, but it is mainly used for various internal and external rotating surfaces and the processing of its end face;
2) The main movement of lathe processing is the rotational movement of the workpiece, and the feed movement is the longitudinal and transverse movement of the tool

1.How does a lathe machine work?

A lathe machine is a machine tool that rotates a workpiece about an axis of rotation to perform various operations such as cutting, sanding, knurling, drilling, deformation, facing, and turning, with tools that are applied to the workpiece to create an object with symmetry about that axis. The workpiece is held in place by either a chuck, a faceplate, or a tailstock, which is a device that holds the end of the workpiece in place. The cutting tool is then applied to the workpiece, which is rotated at a predetermined speed. As the cutting tool moves along the workpiece, it removes material to create the desired shape. The speed of the cutting tool is adjusted to achieve the desired finish.

2.What role does the lead screw play in a lathe machine?

The lead screw in a lathe machine is used to move the carriage and cross slide along the bed of the lathe. It is driven by the spindle motor and is used to accurately position the cutting tool for machining operations. The lead screw is also used to move the tailstock along the bed of the lathe.

What role does the lead screw play in a lathe machine?

3.How does a lathe machine contribute to precision machining?

A lathe machine is a precision machining tool that is used to shape and form metal and other materials. It is capable of producing highly accurate and precise parts with a high degree of repeatability. The lathe is capable of cutting, drilling, and turning materials to create complex shapes and features. It is also capable of performing a variety of operations such as threading, knurling, and facing. The lathe is an essential tool for precision machining and is used in a variety of industries including automotive, aerospace, and medical.

4.How is the cutting depth adjusted in a lathe machine?

The cutting depth is adjusted in a lathe machine by adjusting the tool post height. The tool post height is adjusted by turning the tool post handwheel, which moves the tool post up or down. The cutting depth is then adjusted by moving the tool post to the desired height.

How is the cutting depth adjusted in a lathe machine?

5.How does a lathe machine contribute to mass production in manufacturing?

A lathe machine is a versatile tool used in manufacturing for mass production. It is used to shape and form metal and other materials into a variety of shapes and sizes. It can be used to create components for a variety of products, including automotive parts, medical devices, and consumer electronics. The lathe machine is capable of producing parts with high accuracy and repeatability, making it an ideal tool for mass production. It can also be used to create complex shapes and intricate details, making it a valuable tool for creating custom parts.

6.How is the feed rate controlled in a lathe machine?

The feed rate in a lathe machine is typically controlled by a feed rate dial or lever. This allows the operator to adjust the speed at which the cutting tool moves along the workpiece. The feed rate can also be adjusted by changing the spindle speed.

How is the feed rate controlled in a lathe machine?

7.What are the common accessories used with a lathe machine?

1. Lathe Chuck: Used to hold the workpiece in place while it is being machined.
2. Lathe Dog: Used to hold the workpiece in place while it is being machined.
3. Lathe Centers: Used to support the workpiece while it is being machined.
4. Lathe Cutters: Used to shape the workpiece.
5. Lathe Faceplate: Used to mount the workpiece to the lathe.
6. Lathe Steady Rest: Used to support the workpiece while it is being machined.
7. Lathe Follow Rest: Used to support the workpiece while it is being machined.
8. Lathe Tool Post: Used to hold the cutting tools in place.
9. Lathe Carriage: Used to move the cutting tool across the workpiece.
10. Lathe Tailstock: Used to support the workpiece while it is being machined.

8.What safety precautions should be followed when operating a lathe machine?

1. Wear appropriate safety gear, such as safety glasses, hearing protection, and a face shield.

2. Make sure the lathe is properly secured to the floor or workbench.

3. Ensure that the workpiece is properly secured in the chuck or other holding device.

4. Make sure the cutting tool is sharp and properly adjusted.

5. Keep hands and clothing away from the cutting area.

6. Make sure the lathe is turned off when not in use.

7. Make sure the lathe is properly lubricated and maintained.

8. Make sure the work area is well-lit and free of debris.

9. Make sure the lathe is not overloaded.

10. Make sure the lathe is not operated in an area with combustible materials.
