What is a "centre lathe"?

The centre lathe is the simplest and most basic form of the lathe. This machine has a lot of useful features and components, such as the thread cutting device. These industrial machines are commonly deployed for the production of single pieces, or a small-scale series, of simple turned parts. It is also the standard machine used for training purposes.

Machine parts of a centre lathe

The machine parts of a centre lathe include a headstock, tool slide, tailstock, workpiece mount, feed and a steady rest. The headstock is found to the left of the lathe, which is where the motor, gearbox and work spindle are also found. The workpiece is fixed to the workpiece mount, which alternates constantly. The tailstock, which is where workpieces are stored before they are processed, is put into action using a crank or an automatic feed. Tools such as the drill, miller and cutter are also operated using a crank handle. Nowadays, the machines are fitted with a quick-action tool holder, so that one can quickly switch between the different necessary tools. This increases the operating efficiency of the machine.

The tailstock is used to centre and fix the workpiece, which is pushed and clamped in to ensure a secure working position. A bezel is used to prevent the workpiece from vibrating during high speeds and for example, when using long workpieces. The most common usage of a bezel spares the use of a motor and storage of the lathe, and is a part that should be used as much as possible.

Working with a center lathe

Center lathes are mainly used for maintenance work. They are essential for the quick manufacturing of urgently needed spare parts for maintenance work within the company. With the availability of a center lathe, necessary parts can be quickly produced, without having to block a machine that is being used for mass production. These machines are too inefficient to be used for batch fabrication. They are very popular machines to use for training and hobby purposes. The operation of a center lathe is permissible by anyone as long as they have taken the safety regulations into account and are being supervised by a professional.
