In a Heavy DutyLathe Machine, metal is removed from the workpiece using a hardenedcutting tool, which is usually fixed to a solid moveable mounting, either a tool-post or a turret, which is then moved against the workpiece using handwheels and/or computer-controlled motors. These cutting tools come in a wide range of sizes and shapes, depending upon their application. Some common styles are diamond, round, square and triangular.
The tool-post is operated by lead-screws that can accurately position the tool in a variety of planes. The tool-post may be driven manually or automatically to produce the roughing and finishing cuts required toturnthe workpiece to the desired shape and dimensions, or for cuttingall types of threads,worm gears, etc.Cutting oilmay also be pumped to the cutting site to provide cooling, lubrication and clearing ofswarffrom the workpiece.
Manually controlled metalworking lathes are commonly provided with a variable-ratio gear-train to drive the main lead-screw. This enables differentthread pitchesto be cut. On some older lathes or more affordable new lathes, the gear trains are changed by swapping gears with various numbers of teeth onto or off of the shafts, while more modern or expensive manually controlled lathes have aquick-change boxto provide commonly used ratios by the operation of a lever. CNC lathes use computers and servomechanisms to regulate the rates of movemen
