Advantages of lathe processing
CNC lathe by stepping motor drive ball screw transmission, because the ball screw can have interference, transmission without clearance, precision mainly depends on the machine tool itself and the program to ensure. In the process of processing can be automatically measured, and can automatically compensate tool wear and other reasons for the error. So the processing quality is good, the accuracy is stable.
Characteristics of lathe processing
It can be programmed to turn out parts of complex shapes that are difficult to be machined on an ordinary lathe. Suitable for high precision, large batch, complex shape parts. But it also works well in small batches. It costs more to maintain than a common lathe.
An ordinary lathe is driven by gears and ordinary lead screw nuts. Because there is a gap between the motion pair, coupled with manual operation is not accurate, so the repetition accuracy is low. The measurement of the general lathe needs to stop after manual measurement, measurement error is large, and low efficiency. Suitable for batch small, precision requirements are not high, spare parts. The investment of CNC lathe is lower than that of CNC lathe, but it requires higher operating skills of workers, so the wage level is high. The scrap rate and productivity of a low level worker can give you a headache.
