Lathe machining

Lathe machines used for turning workpieces of metal and other materials similar in shape to the figure of revolution. Such operations as turning and boring of cylindrical, conical and form surfaces, cutting of thread, facing, hole drilling, enlarging and reaming performed on lathes.

The workpiece receives rotation from spindle, cutter – the cutting tool – moves with rest sledge from traverse shaft or lead screw which receive rotation from feed gearing.

SprutCAM allows to design NC-programs for lathe machines with CNC.
