How many kinds of lathes are there?

1, ordinary lathe

The processing object is wide, the spindle speed and feed adjustment range is large, and the inner and outer surfaces, end faces and internal and external threads of the workpiece can be processed. This lathe is mainly manually operated by workers, the production efficiency is low, suitable for single piece, small batch production and repair workshop.


2, turret lathe and rotary lathe

The turret tool holder or back wheel tool holder that can install multiple tools can be used to complete a variety of processes by workers in turn using different tools in one clamping of the workpiece, and is suitable for batch production.


3, automatic lathe

It can automatically complete the multi-process processing of small and medium-sized workpieces according to certain procedures, can automatically load and unload, and repeatedly process a batch of the same workpieces, which is suitable for large quantities and mass production.


4, multi-tool semi-automatic lathe

There are single-axis, multi-axis, horizontal and vertical points. The layout of the single-axis horizontal lathe is similar to that of the ordinary lathe, but the two sets of tool holders are installed before and after the spindle or above and below, which are used for processing disks, rings and shaft workpieces, and the production efficiency is 3 to 5 times higher than that of the ordinary lathe.


5 , Copying lathe

It can imitate the shape and size of the template or sample, and automatically complete the processing cycle of the workpiece, which is suitable for small batch and batch production of the workpiece with more complex shape.

The productivity is 10 to 15 times higher than that of ordinary lathes. There are multi-tool holder, multi-axis, chuck type, vertical and other types.


6, Vertical lathe

The main shaft is perpendicular to the horizontal plane, the workpiece is clamped on the horizontal rotating workbench, and the tool holder moves on the beam or the column. Suitable for processing large, heavy, difficult to install on the ordinary lathe workpiece, generally divided into single column and double column two categories.


7, shovel lathe

At the same time of turning, the tool holder makes radial reciprocating movement periodically, which is used for the forming tooth surface of the milling cutter and hob. A small grinding wheel, usually with a grinding attachment, driven by a separate motor, scoops and grinds the tooth surface.


8, special lathe

Lathes used for machining a particular surface of a type of workpiece, such as crankshaft lathes, camshaft lathes, wheel lathes, axle lathes, roll lathes and ingot lathes.


9、Combined lathe

It is used for turning processing, but after attaching some special parts and accessories, it can also be boring, milling, drilling, inserting, grinding and other processing, with the characteristics of “one machine with multiple capabilities”, which is suitable for repair workers on engineering vehicles, ships or mobile repair stations
