Industrial Lathe Machines for Metal Shaping and Woodworking

Considered the “mother of all machine tools,” the lathe is one of the most common machines in almost any machine shop or manufacturing facility. It works by spinning a part at a high rate of speed and using cutting tools to remove material from the object.

So many everyday items are made with them that you have to wonder: where we would be if these incredible machines were not invented? Almost everything that is made of metal has been designed, in some small way, on one of these machines.

Furthermore, the catalog of diverse products that can be made with them is endless. Aside from shaping a part, they can assist with drilling, milling, and grinding.

Throughout the country, they can be found in schools, machine shops, factories, or anywhere parts are being made. Their exceptional functionality makes them a necessity for anyone who’s serious about manufacturing.
