Lathe Machine is a machine tool that is used to remove metals from a workpiece to give a desired shape and size. This Lathe Machines are used in metalworking and parts reclamation. The various other operations that you can perform with the help of Lathe Machine can include sanding, cutting, knurling, drilling, and deformation of tools that are employed in creating objects which have symmetry about the axis of rotation.
WORKING PRINCIPLE :
Lathe is a machine tool which holds the worpiece between two rigid and strong supports called center or in a chuck or face plate which revolves. The cutting tool is rigidly held and supported in a tool post which is fed against the revolving work. The normal cutting operations are performed with the cutting tool fed either parallel or at right angles to the axis of the work. The cutting tool may also be fed at an angle relative to the axis of work for machining tapers and angles.
