General lathe

Processing objects wide, spindle speed and feed adjustment range of large, can be processed workpiece internal and external surface, end surface and internal and external threads.

This lathe is mainly operated by manual workers, low production efficiency, suitable for single, small batch production and repair workshop.

Turret and Turning lathe

With a turret or back wheel holder capable of loading more than one tool, the workers can complete various processes by using different cutters in a single clamping of workpiece, which is suitable for mass production.

Automatic lathe

According to a certain program to automate the processing of small and medium-sized parts of the process, can automatically up and down the material, repetitive processing of a batch of the same workpiece, suitable for a large number of production.

Multi-blade semi-automatic lathe

 There are single axis, multi-axis, horizontal and vertical points.

The single axis horizontal layout form is similar to the ordinary lathe, but the two groups of knives are installed in the front and rear of the spindle, and are used for processing disk, ring and shaft workpiece, and its production rate is 3~5 times higher than that of ordinary lathe.

Imitation lathe

Can imitate the shape of the sample or sample size, automatic completion of the workpiece processing cycle (see profiling machine), suitable for the shape of more complex workpiece small batch and mass production, productivity than the ordinary lathe 10~15 times higher.

There are multiple turret, multi-axis, chuck type, vertical and other types.

Vertical lathe

The spindle is perpendicular to the horizontal plane, the workpiece is clamped on the horizontal revolving worktable, and the tool holder moves on the crossbeam or the upright post. 

Suitable for processing larger, heavier, difficult to install on the ordinary lathe workpiece, divided into single column and two types of columns.

Shovel Gear lathe

At the same time of turning, the turret is used as the radial reciprocating movement for the forming gear surface of the forklift cutter and Hob.

It is usually provided with a shovel-grinding accessory and a small grinding wheel driven by a separate motor to grind the tooth surface.

Specialization lathe

A lathe, such as a crankshaft lathe, camshaft lathe, wheel lathe, axle lathe, roll lathe, and ingot lathe, for processing a particular surface of a type of workpiece.

Combined lathe

Mainly used for turning processing, but attach some special parts and accessories can also be boring, milling, drilling, inserting, grinding and other processing, with the "one machine many can" characteristics, applicable to the engineering vehicles, ships or mobile repair stations on the repair work.

Saddle lathe

The left end bed of the saddle lathe in the trunk is a sinking shape that can accommodate a large diameter part. The lathe's shape is two high, the middle is low, resembles the saddle, therefore is called the saddle lathe. The saddle lathe is suitable for machining radial size, small axial size parts, suitable for turning workpiece outer circle, inner hole, end face, cutting groove and metric, inch, modulus, through the node thread, but also drilling, boring, reaming and other processes, especially suitable for single pieces, mass production enterprises use. The saddle lathe can process larger diameter workpiece in the saddle groove. The guide rail of the machine tool is hardened and polished, and the operation is convenient and reliable. The lathe has the characteristics of large power, high rotational speed, strong rigidity, high precision and low noise.
