Industrial Metal Lathe Machines


One of most common machines found in almost any machine shop or manufacturing facility is the lathe. The simplest description of how a metal lathe machine works is to spin a part at a high rate of speed and use cutting tools to remove material from the object. There are so many things that are made with lathes, you have to wonder where we would be if these incredible machines were not invented? Almost everything you know of that is made of metal, has at one point been designed at least in a small way on a lathe. That is why this highly versatile and functional machine is considered the "mother of all machine tools."


The amount of products that can be made with a lathe is endless. Aside from shaping a part, a lathe can assist with drilling, milling, and grinding. Throughout the country, lathes can be found in schools, machine shops, factories, or anywhere parts are being made. It’s such a functional machine that it’s a "must have" for anyone who’s serious about manufacturing.
