Similarly, a CNC lathe rotates the workpiece at high speed, making precision cuts. The lathe removes excess material from a carefully calculated final designated shape. Lathes produce small batches of cylindrical and rounded machined parts. By meticulously reducing the diameter of the piece, the lathe reaches the exact dimensions for each project. A CNC lathe is a multi-use cutting machine used for everything from facing, parting, threading, drilling, grooving, reaming, and tapping. Specialized tool heads create almost any cutting and grooving effects.
CNC machining material comes in a wide range of various working thicknesses. The CNC lathe provides high torque, speed, and accuracy. Lathes are more conducive to cylindrical and rounded parts often seen in the automotive, aerospace, construction, and military industries.
