Title: CNC Lathes over Conventional Lathes (1)

CNC Lathes Vs Conventional Lathes
Machining and manufacturing industry has gone
through various technological advancements in the
last couple of centuries - starting from the
Industrial Revolution of the 1820s, who gave away
the manual labor for machines, to the
introduction of the assembly line in 1913.
CNC Lathe Machine
A lathe machine is typically used for shaping the
material into the desired form by removing the
excess material from a given workpiece. A lathe
is also used to perform complex operations such
as knurling, deformation, metal spinning,
woodturning, thermal spraying, metalworking and
Advantages of CNC Lathes Over Conventional Lathes
1. Doesnt need highly skilled operators Back in
the day, working with lathes required two highly
skilled operators - one handling the lathe and
the other controlling the material. It was a
tough job. Now, with the introduction of
computers, the task seems less daunting. You just
need one operator, skilled enough to enter the
dimensions onto the machine, and let the computer
do the rest of the job.
2. Full automation makes working with CNC lathes
easier and quicker
Producing hundreds, even millions, of similar
dimensions is easier than ever, thanks to modern
CNC Lathes. Unlike before, there is a
machine-controlled system that enables CNC lathes
to produce perfect pieces easier, quicker.
3. Highly versatile - can be used to make all
kinds of products and CNC machines parts
Unlike manual lathes, CNC lathes are versatile
enough to produce everything you desire - from
sturdy furniture pieces and car parts to delicate
lamps, crockery and beyond. Shaping cylinder or
sphere is easier with CNC lathes. They can be
used to produce replacements parts for fellow
machines as well.
4. 99.99 accuracy
As less manual labor is involved, the chances of
cent percent accuracy are pretty high with CNC
lathes. This makes this machine type a top choice
in industries where precision is everything,
namely aerospace, healthcare, hospitality and
beyond. Plus, CNC lathes work with almost every
5. Costs
  • While CNC lathes are a lot costlier than manual
    lathes, there are a lot of financial factors that
    makes CNC lathes a favorable choice over the
    latter. To name some
  • Set up costs
  • Machining cost
  • Labor costs
  • Material waste
