The basic engine lathe is used for most lathes, with smaller bench or portable machines, or larger vertical tables standing on the floor.
This kind of machine tool is usually used in the on-site repair workshop, which can adapt to a variety of operations to complete the lathe processing work. Turret lathes or special lathes are often used for mass production or special purpose production workshops.
How do you divide the size of the engine lathe? The size of the lathe is determined by the largest work piece that can be machined. The maximum size that can be machined also takes into account the diameter of the work piece during its rotational movement and the length of the distance from the center of the lathe machine.
Therefore, light weight bench engine lathes, precision tool room lathes, and gap lathes (also known as extended lathes) are classified according to size.
The light bench lathe machine, which is a small lathe mounted on a table, has a small swing angle and can perform most of the machining, but the processing capability is limited by the size of the work piece.
Precision lathe machines are common standard lathes that can handle all lathes machining, including turning, boring, drilling, reaming, thread screw production, taper turning, knurling, etc., and can also be used for special cutting operations. High-precision lathe machining is possible, and the work pieces that can be processed are 25 inches in diameter and 200 inches in length.
Gap lathe machine or extended lathe machine can process longer work items, similar to a wood lathe, but with the difference that the machine table can be adjusted to allow for larger diameter or longer lathe machining.
