CNC lathe is composed of CNC device, lathe bed, headstock, tool rest feeding system, tailstock, hydraulic system, cooling system, lubrication system, chip conveyor, etc.
CNC lathes are divided into vertical CNC lathes and horizontal CNC lathes.
Vertical CNC lathe is used for turning disc parts with large rotary diameter.
Horizontal CNC lathe is used for turning long axial size or small disk parts.
Horizontal CNC lathes can be further divided into economic CNC lathes, ordinary CNC lathes and turning centers according to their functions.
Economical CNC lathe: It is a simple CNC lathe formed by reforming the turning feed system of an ordinary lathe with a stepping motor and a single chip computer. The cost is low, the degree of automation and function are relatively poor, and the turning accuracy is not high, which is suitable for turning rotary parts with low requirements.
Ordinary CNC lathe: a CNC lathe specially designed in structure according to the requirements of turning and equipped with a universal CNC system. The NC system has strong functions, high degree of automation and processing accuracy, and is suitable for turning general rotary parts. This kind of CNC lathe can control two coordinate axes at the same time, namely, x-axis and z-axis.
