Different from a mill in that it produces a round diameter on a part by rotating a workpiece against a non-rotating single-point tool, as Figure 1. shows.The lathe, operated manually, changes the size, shape, and finish of a workpiece with a variety of cutting tools. Turret Lathe & CNC Machining Centers. The turret holds multiple cutting tools that rotate into position when needed. Each time the turret lever is activated, the turret spins or indexes and positions the next tool in the sequence. It is then ready to carry out different machining operations. Because the turret holds multiple tools, the machinist does not have to change tools each and every time a different tool is needed. There are automated versions of these lathes that are computer controlled and are called CNC Machining Centers. Basic Lathe Terminology The bed is the base and backbone of the lathe. The bed is a heavy, rigid frame made of cast iron on which all other components of the lathe are mounted and/or move. Using the Digital Readout (DRO), Work Holding Devices.
