We offer a wide range of used CNC lathes, CNC lathe milling centers and cycle lathes. Rotating bodies can be produced on a CNC lathe. More complex shapes are conical or spherical surfaces or free shapes, which can deviate from the rotational symmetry by means of additional equipment.

With an NC machine (Numerical Control), the control information is read blockwise from a punched tape or other external information carrier with each machining operation. The CNC machine, on the other hand, offers the ability to read machining information into the memory of the controller. Furthermore, it is possible to import and program CAD drawings directly. This information can be used again and again for processing and stored without further information input.All target specifications of the control system are communicated in numeric form and are continuously compared with each other by means of control devices in the working process - resulting in the designation "numeric". These control devices include the position of the tool, the speed of its clamping movements and the rotational speed.
CNC lathes: technology
When working with CNC machines, it is necessary to set up the corresponding CNC program before machining. There are several ways to do this. On the one hand, the program can be created directly on the machine, which is called workshop programming. On the other hand, it is possible to program the CNC machine using data carriers such as USB sticks, CDs, or floppy disks or via the use of laptops. The third way to program a CNC machine is through a special network (DNC).In general, CNC machines are programmed according to the DIN 66025 scheme, taking into account the manufacturer's specifications. In the program, a so-called technology line must be created in which details on the tool number, spindle speed and direction of rotation of the spindle can be called up. To simplify the programs, manufacturer-dependent auxiliary parameters are integrated into the CNC programs in the form of length, angle and other additional functions. For an uncomplicated and economical process, the programs of CNC machines should be kept as clear as possible.
