Basic Turning


A lathe is a machine that rotates a workpiece

and machines it with a cutting tool.

Cutting tools for external turning are called tool holders, while those for boring are called boring bars.



A CNC lathe can machine curved surfaces and complicated-shaped workpiece using numerical control and automatic tool changing (ATC) function.




A multi-task machining centre is a machine that can perform many kinds of machining operations. The machining operations that can be conducted include turning, milling, drilling an oblique hole, slotting and hobbing.
