Universal lathes

The universal lathe is a machine-tool that performs turning pieces of metal, wood and plastic.

Apart from turning, this machine can be used to make grooves in pieces (what is called slotted), also can perform other functions such as grinding, sanding and cutting pieces mecanizar.El universal lathe has 3 basic movements: the movement of rotation, the feed and penetration. It is highly desirable that the technician who handles around deftly mastered these three movements to shape the piece without making mistakes.

The universal lathe or conventional lathe, as it is not equipped with numerical control, requires that the operator who is working with it possess knowledge on the process of turning and technical skills to achieve optimal results.

The growing demand for CNC lathes has pushed the universal lathes into the background, but still they have their supporters in the metallurgical market of industrial machinery.
