CNC lathes are similar to conventional lathe techniques, but make full use of Computerized Numerical Control methods. CNC lathes have found a significant niche in the manufacturing sphere over the last several years and, in some cases, are taking over many of the traditional tools and machines. Manufacturers, such as Cadorath, employ them for their many customers.
ADVANTAGES OF CONVENTIONAL LATHE
- Cutting can be controlled more precisely through data.
- Easy set-up and operation.
- Perfect for lower production requirements.
ORIGINS AND DEVELOPMENT
As numerical control technology advanced into the 60s and 70s, the more familiar CNC machine form known today began to take shape. When computer technology fully entered the marketplace, CNC lathes and the companies who run them took full advantage of the interface between machine operator and computer.
Many advancements in the basic lathe machine have occurred over the last few decades—CNC technologies among them. Future advancements undoubtedly include artificial intelligence and virtual reality applications.
