Title: Lathe Machines

Lathe Machines
Types of Lathes
  • Center Lathe
  • Engine Lathe
  • Bench Lathe
  • Capstan Turret Lathes
  • Automatic Lathes
  • Multi Spindle Lathes
  • Vertical Turret Lathes
  • CNC Lathes

The machining operations generally carried out in
centre lathes are Facing Centering
Rough and finish turning Chamfering,
shouldering, grooving, recessing etc Axial
drilling and reaming by holding the cutting tool
in the tailstock barrel Taper turning by
offsetting the tailstock swivelling the
compound slide using form tool with taper over
short length using taper turning attachment if
available combining longitudinal feed and cross
feed, if feasible. Boring (internal turning)
straight and taper Forming external and
internal Cutting helical threads external and
internal Parting off Knurling

  • The capstan lathe, having a relatively short
    stroke of the tool head and automatic indexing,
    results in a rapid presentation of the tools to
    the work.
  • The turret lathe, on the other hand, is suitable
    for long and heavy work, the larger size of
    machines having a capacity for bar work up to 200
    mm diameter X 1500 mm long or for chuck work up
    to 750 mm diameter. Capstan lathes are limited to
    a maximum of 300 mm diameter chuck works.
  • It is clear that turret lathes are larger, in
    size as compared to capstan lathes. Unlike
    capstans, the turret and dead stops on turret
    lathes have to be indexed into position by hand.
  • Capstan and turret lathes give quite effectively
    the normal accuracy required for interchangeable
    mass production. The dimensional accuracy may be
    within 0.002 mm for turning and boring and within
    0.005 mm for reaming.

Multi Spindle Lathe 6 Spindles
Shimada Machinery Co. Ltd,
  • The 6-Spindle Automatic Lathe uses one spindle
    for loading and unloading.
  • The other five spindles are used for turning
  • The Multi-Spindle Automatic Lathe moves work
    pieces between 6 or 8 stations (processing
    locations), with processes such as boring,
    turning, chamfering, screw cutting, grooving, and
    drilling conducted at separate stations.
  • Pos1 loading/unloading requires the most time.
    This longest position time becomes the cycle time
    when using a 6 or 8 spindle automatic lathe
