CNC LATHE MACHINING

CNC Lathe Machining Services


CNC Lathes cut workpieces while they are rotated. Our CNC lathes are able to make fast, precision cuts, using indexable tools and drills. They are particularly useful for making parts that would be more difficult to make on manual lathes. We usually can do anything that our manual lathe can but are fully programmable and can be left to automatically complete projects for 24/7 Production projects.

Our CNC Lathe Machines are also able to be manually programmed or adjusted, allowing a skilled user to manipulate a design until it is perfect. Once set, we can quickly create a large run that are highly accurate and identical.

CNC LATHE MACHING APPLICATIONS

A CNC lathe can be used in many different applications. While lathes were originally designed to cut metal, today’s modern CNC lathes can make use of many different materials, including soft plastics, aluminum, titanium, and even exotic metals. Lathes generally have a large workspace and can be used to create large single-piece parts that other machines may have to create out of two pieces. This is very useful in the Automobile, Aerospace/Defense, Energy and Commercial Industries.

WHY CHOOSE CNC LATHE MACHINING

There are a number of reasons why CNC Lathe Machining is the best option for certain projects.

24-Hour Work

24-Hour Work

Once programed with a design, it can operate until the run is complete.

Cut a Variety of Materials

Cut a Variety of Materials

Our CNC lathes can cut many different materials. This includes metals, plastics, and untraditional materials.

icon

Little Damage or Defects

CNC lathes can reproduce the same part over and over with very little variation between the pieces.

icon

A Variety of Sizes

The size of our CNC lathes means we can handle different sizes of materials. In fact, many projects can be done on one machine because of the size and features available.

Manufacture Things Manual Machines Can’t

Manufacture Things Manual Machines Can’t

The computers used on CNC lathe machines can be programmed to do many advanced tasks. Some of these tasks would take humans hours to do, if they could even do them.

Surface finish achievable with EDM

Nov 16, 2017

Surface finish is often called out on part prints. Sometimes it’s because it influences appearance, more often because it affects how surfaces slide over one another. Bearing surfaces and those used for sealing are examples of where finish is important. An EDM surface finish is different to that produced by conventional machining. Cutting processes produce…

Let EDM be your secret weapon

Oct 26, 2017

Thin walls, tight internal radii, tapers, deep blind pockets in hard materials. Sometimes it seems designers are just trying to find the limits of what manufacturing can do. It’s as if they’re hoping manufacturing will say, “Can’t be done.” The thing is, if manufacturing only has access to conventional machining processes they’re probably right. Some…

How accurate is wire EDM?

Oct 4, 2017

It’s only natural that designers and toolmakers should ask about the precision of EDM. Knowing the capabilities of the process informs design decisions and influences costs. Whether the parts being made are surgical instruments, extrusion dies, or aerospace components, it’s important to know what tolerances are achievable. Unfortunately, there’s no simple answer. While accuracies of…

Wire EDM is Not Just for Tooling

You can think of wire EDM as the non-contact, 21st Century version of the fretsaw. A fretsaw is used to cut complex shapes from blocks of wood. The key to its versatility is the blade, which is essentially just an abrasive wire. Being thin and able to cut on all sides, the woodworker can turn it easily to follow…
