A precision Tool Room lathe is for super precise work. The most popular Precision lathe is a Hardinge, known as the Ferrari of Lathe machines, out of the factory they hold up to 50 Millionths tolerance. Precision Toolroom Lathes offer high production of precision parts requiring consistent accuracy, and ease of operation. These lathes can also thread with great accuracy in inch or metric.
Also known as Turret, is an indexable toolholder that allows multiple cutting operations to be performed, each with a different cutting tool, in easy, rapid succession with no need for the operator to perform setup tasks in between (such as installing or uninstalling tools) nor to control the toolpath. (The latter is due to the toolpath\'s being controlled by the machine, either in jig-like fashion [via the mechanical limits placed on it by the turret\'s slide and stops] or via IT-directed servomechanisms [on CNC lathes].)
Lathes are used in woodturning, metalworking, metal spinning, and glassworking. Most suitably equipped metalworking lathes can also be used to produce most solids of revolution, plane surfaces and screw threads or helices. Ornamental lathes can produce three-dimensional solids of incredible complexity. The material is held in place by either one or two centers, at least one of which can be moved horizontally to accommodate varying material lengths. Examples of objects that can be produced on a lathe include candlestick holders, cue sticks, table legs, bowls, baseball bats, musical instruments, crankshafts and camshafts.
