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

3. Limited tooling options: Conventional lathes have limited tooling options, which can be a limitation when machining certain materials.
4. Limited accuracy: Conventional lathes have limited accuracy, which can be a limitation when machining certain materials.
5. Limited automation: Conventional lathes have limited automation, which can be a limitation when machining certain materials.
6. Limited spindle speed: Conventional lathes have limited spindle speed, which can be a limitation when machining certain materials.
2.What are the steps involved in setting up a workpiece on a lathe machine?
1. Select the correct tooling for the job.
2. Secure the workpiece in the lathe chuck or collet.
3. Set the cutting speed and feed rate.
4. Set the cutting depth and tool height.
5. Set the tool offset.
6. Set the spindle speed.
7. Set the coolant flow.
8. Start the machine and check for proper operation.
9. Make a test cut to check the setup.
10. Make the necessary adjustments and begin machining.
3.How is a lathe machine used in turning operations?
A lathe machine is used in turning operations to shape a workpiece by rotating it against a cutting tool. The cutting tool is held in a tool post and is fed into the rotating workpiece to remove material and create the desired shape. The lathe can also be used to create threads, grooves, and other features on the workpiece.
4.What are the advantages of using a CNC lathe machine?
1. Increased Accuracy: CNC lathes are capable of producing parts with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability. This is due to the fact that the machine is programmed with precise instructions and is able to repeat the same process over and over again.
2. Increased Productivity: CNC lathes are able to produce parts faster than manual lathes, allowing for increased production and shorter lead times.
3. Reduced Labor Costs: CNC lathes require fewer operators than manual lathes, resulting in lower labor costs.
4. Reduced Waste: CNC lathes are able to produce parts with minimal waste, resulting in cost savings.
5. Increased Safety: CNC lathes are equipped with safety features that reduce the risk of injury to operators.
5.What are the common materials that can be machined using a lathe?
Common materials that can be machined using a lathe include: aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, steel, stainless steel, titanium, plastic, wood, and composites.
6.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.
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 is the purpose of a tailstock on a lathe machine?
The tailstock on a lathe machine is used to support the end of a workpiece that is too long to fit between the headstock and the tool post. It can also be used to hold cutting tools, such as drills and reamers, for operations such as drilling and reaming.
