Bench Lathe

Although lathe machine is mostly not bench supported, some of them are still place on the bench due to some specific issues of consideration. In the lathe machine inventory, bench lathe machine is usually portable for users to carry on place by place. This means that the critical functionality of bench lathe is its convenient mobility. Bench lathe can be either manual or CNC controlled, or even NC programmed. Identical to the conventional lathe, bench lathe can rotates a work piece on an axis of rotation to perform various machining operations on a supportive bench. Those turning or machining tasks include cutting, knurling, sanding, and turning on its own and is easy to be moved to other location for industrial tasks. Two categories of bench lathe: Normally speaking, in ordinary circumstances, bench turning machines are categorized into two main types according to the way that clamp the work pieces. That is, the vertical bench lathe and the horizontal bench lathe machines.

Types of Bench Lathe

In the lathe machine inventory, bench lathe machine is usually portable for users to carry on place by place. This means that the critical functionality of bench lathe is its convenient mobility. Bench lathe can be either manual or CNC controlled, or even NC programmed. Identical to the conventional lathe, bench lathe can rotates a work piece on an axis of rotation to perform various machining operations on a supportive bench. Those turning or machining tasks include cutting, knurling, sanding, and turning on its own and is easy to be moved to other location for industrial tasks.

Two categories of bench lathe

Normally speaking, in ordinary circumstances, bench turning machines are categorized into two main types according to the way that clamp the work pieces. That is, the vertical bench lathe and the horizontal bench lathe machines.

For the former one, the work piece is clamped vertically and the cutting tool is thus installed on the same direction, therefore the machining process is conducted vertically. By this arrangement, the clamping is much more stern and fixed due to the gravity effect compared to the horizontal methodology and manufacturers of vertical turning machines usually made their vertical turning machines into great manufacturing facilities for users in a variety of industrial sectors that pursue for high precision, such as automotive industry, aerospace sector, sport equipment application, and other fields with larger size work pieces. Furthermore, with the vertical clamping mechanism, the spindles of vertical turning lathes are also located behind the chuck, while some may be belt-driven, and some may be other types of driving mechanisms. Like other milling machines and machine centers, turning lathes can also be equipped with power tools as well as too magazines to boost its functionality and versatility, granting wider processing possibility to users.

Accessories

Power turret is a modern and standard accessory of many CNC (computer numerical control) turning machines, and as one of the most important accessories to the users of CNC bench lathes, Taiwanese suppliers aim at this business and have developed many well known power turret and power tool companies that supports the demands form lathe users all over the world market. Many of these power turrets are driven by single or double motor(s) with servo features, which ensure the best machining quality and save the optimal energy consumption. Besides the power turret, tool magazine and the automatic too changer (ATC) are also the best sellers of Taiwanese machine tool accessory manufacturers. Taiwan’s tool magazine and ATC system offers the optimal T to T time to customers based on their production cycle time engineering, and can help manufacturers keep up with various kinds of order demands from all over the world.

Taiwan’s advantages

Compared with the worldwide competitors, Taiwanese know how to provide comprehensive services to global customers with the best blueprint planning according to the local circumstances, hence the productions that are equipped with the machine tools or accessories are hence face-lifted to the latest version that is capable of dealing with the order demands. Spindles and chuck and the corresponding hydraulic cylinders are also well developed in Taiwan. Together with the CNC turning machine market, there are a bunch of lathe products and accessories that are widely spread in the world across different industrial sectors and applications. Meanwhile, horizontal bench lathes belong to conventional design that has been developed and massively applied for over two centuries are still the most commonly accepted machine tools that are suitable for most turning tasks.

The horizontal nature makes the turning machine easy to be used and maintained, and are used even wider in a lot of industries due to their convenience and structure, be it flat bed or slant bed lathe. Therefore, there is no standard answer to either horizontal or vertical is better for users, but only about the customers’ working circumstances and their production plans.

Bench lathe development 

For the trend of the bench lathe, automation is also an important thing in the industry, because industry nowadays is changing rapidly and in both automation and 3C consumable electric sectors by which the bench lathe machines are widely utilized to process tiny work pieces, manufacturers that need to proceed machining tasks in the 21st century tend to purchase machining centers with robotic arm accessories for a wider application.

Even if the machine tools are the most fundamental capital goods for manufacturers and play the critical role that determines the final output of the end products, components such as bearing, robotic arm or other automation equipment still play an important but independent role in the accessories market and the relevant industrial sectors. The innovative designs and new applications will keep motivating the industry as well as industrial insiders to make the best use of those components that help to accelerate the machining and manufacturing. As a result, the issue on how to make the bench lathe be linked to the automatic production line becomes very crucial to manufacturers if they are considering about the cost effective issues.
