Shape with a lathe is a very common machining process in industry. It allows a material to be machined to the desired shape by chip removal. Numerically controlled industrial lathes make it possible to machine a workpiece by rotating it on itself while a cutting tool forms the desired shape.
Today's CNC lathes can carry out multiple operations such as grooving, threading, drilling, etc. on many materials such as aluminium, brass, thermoplastics....
Lathe requires less energy and force than other processes, the tools wear less and therefore have a longer service life. CNC lathes allow easy chip recovery, which can be very useful for toxic or abrasive chips for example.
With its technology designed for performance, the CHARLY4T mini CNC lathe brings simplicity for prototypes and small series.
