Types of Lathe Machines We Sell

Lathes are used in industrial manufacturing to perform actions and operations like cutting, sanding, knurling, drilling, deformation, facing, and turning. 

Monarch 18" CBB 20-1/2" x 72" Engine Lathe

Engine lathes

Engine lathes are a type of horizontal machinery primarily used to cut metal. Lathes are used to create specific forms and spin sheet metal. Typically, cut pieces are used in automobile engines, machine engines, and other engines used in motorized vehicles.

Vertical Turret Lathes of VTLs

VTLs also referred to as VBMs, are large ram-type machines used for heavy-duty and high-powered cutting of medium and large parts. While they are not generally considered to be high-production machines, vertical turning centers can improve cycle times because they allow for more aggressive cuts.

Automatic Screw Machines

Automatic screw machines are a specific type of lathe that is generally used to machine small and medium-sized parts from varying sizes of bar stock. Our automatic screw machines offer several slides and spindles that hold various types of tools, offering the ability to machine high levels of volumes turned components with high precision and low supervision.

Turret Lathes

Turret lathes are metalworking lathe used in interchangeable cutting processes for the repetitive production of duplicate parts. The turret allows for easy, rapid succession and eliminates the need for an operator to perform set-up tasks in between. We carry manual and automated small, medium, and large-sized turret lathes.

Facing Lathes

Facing is a process smoothly that machines the ends and shoulders of a piece of stock that is smooth, flat, and perpendicular to the axis of the lathe. Facing is an excellent way to cut work to the desired length, and produce a surface on which measurements are able to be taken.

Gap Lathes

Gap lathes, also known as extension-type lathes are similar to toolroom lathes. The key difference between them is that gap lathes can be adjusted larger diameter and longer workplaces and can be used to turn very long workplaces between centers.

New CNC lathe

CNC Lathes & CNC Turning Centers

With continued technological advancements in the manufacturing industry, CNC controlled lathes are rapidly replacing older and more traditional production lathes like the multispindle. CNC lathes offer a number of newer benefits and are generally easier to set up and operate which provides significant repeatability and highly-accurate production.

Uses of CNC Lathe Machines

Generally, CNC lathes are designed to utilize modern versions of carbide tooling and processes. Parts can be designed for customization and the tool paths are typically programmed using CAD or CAM. Despite the computer-controlled designs, programmers can manually design a path or tool part as well and the uploaded coded-computer-file will direct the machine to produce the desired parts.

Because CNC machines are so versatile they are used as cutting tools in industries all over the world including, automotive, electronics, aerospace, firearm, manufacturing, and sporting. Finished examples of finished items created by advanced CNC lathe machines include: 

  • Baseball bats
  • Bowls
  • Camshafts
  • Crankshafts
  • Cue Sticks
  • Dining Room Tables and Chair Legs
  • Gun Barrels
