Manual Lathe machine is a manually operated cutting tool that rotates work piece to desired shapes. It includes an Engine, Special, and Turret Lathes. The metal lathe is used for screw threads, tapered work, drilled holes. It is one of the most versatile and widely used machine tools in the metal working industry. The conventional lathes are easy to operate, efficient, and productive for Multi tasks.

What is the working principle of Manual Lathe Machine?

Manual lathe machines are controlled by hand, They perform various operations to give the desired shape and size. the conventional lathe includes a headstock, bed, tailstock, carriage Toolpost, and spindle. The Industrial metal lathe uses a cutting tool to remove excess material to form the shape. Lathe machine operation process includes turning, boring, drilling, threading, and taper turning. All the methods are basic turning operations. A manual lathe operator requires skill and experience to operate effectively. Various tools and orientation of the tool are for a wide desired shape.


Precision Lathes for Any Application

We offer complete lines of economy, precision, and heavy duty big bore manual lathes. we adopt a full solid cast iron machine base for max rigidity & a front pull out chip tray for easy maintenance. These headstock gears made of alloy steel, hardened precision ground for smooth running. The spindle is 3 points supported by precision bearings. It can assure long-lasting cutting stability. The headstock is an enclosed design with oil lubrication. The gearbox provides inch and metric threading capacity.

    FAQ- Frequently asked questions

    A manual lathe is a type of machine tool used in machining operations to cut various materials, such as metal, wood, or plastic, into desired shapes or sizes. Manual lathes have been a fundamental tool in the field of machining and manufacturing for centuries.

    The manual Lathe works on the principle of rotating the workpiece and a fixed cutting tool

    It operates by rotating the workpiece against a cutting tool that is controlled by the machinist. The workpiece is held between two rigid and strong supports called a center in a chuck or in a faceplate that revolves. Lathe removes the undesired material from a rotating workpiece in the form of chips with the help of a tool that is transverse across the work and can be fed deep in the work.

    The main function of the lathe is to remove the metal from a job to give it the required shape and size.

    A conventional lathe machine is used for the following operations:

    • Turning
    • Facing
    • Grooving
    • key-way cutting
    • Grinding
    • Thread cutting
    • Taper turning
    • Drilling
    • Knurling
    • polishing
    • Milling

    The main difference between a manual lathe and CNC machining is accuracy and time consumption.

    CNC Lathe advantage:

    The accuracy is very high in the case of CNC lathes compared to Normal Machining lathes.

    • The machining in the lathe and CNC lathe was very fast.
    • Fewer machine operators
    • It reduces errors from the manufacturing process and eliminates unnecessary waste.

    Manual lathe Machine advantages:

    • Relatively Affordable Cost-effectiveness
    • Versatile and can perform a wide range of machining operations
    • Flexibility and Adjustability. can easily adjust the speed, feed rate, depth of cut, and tool position according to the specific requirements of the workpiece.
    • Easy to maintain and repair
