One of the products that are needed continuously and in many production areas is Wood Lathes. Turning is the system in which the cutting edge remains constant and the workpiece rotates following the chip removal method. For the first time in the 18th century, the connotations of modern products were designed in today’s sense. It is known that other production machine tools are inspired by the lathe.
What are the main types of lathes?
Main Lathes and other lathes used in maintenance and production workshops are as follows. According to this;
Parallel (universal) lathe,
Revolver lathes, having a rotatable carrier, are the most important differences from parallel lathes. In the carrier having six corners, each different corner has a separate function. In such machines, it is possible to make any kind of small or large, simple or mixed form in mass production.
The parallel lathe maintains the actual movement of the insert in a position parallel to the workpiece axis. The part to be cut between two different tailstock is transformed into the desired shape.
Copy lathe is a frequently preferred type of lathe in molding operations.
Automatic lathe is the most preferred lathe for mass production.
What are the benefits of a wood lathe?
The products that we use most in daily life take their current form with the help of Wood Lathe. In the decoration and production processes of products such as chairs and armchairs, lathe stands out.
