Machine shop Toronto CNC Lathes came great distance , Traditionally Lathes or 2 axis lathes accompany X-Axis and Z-Axis only, these CNC lathes are ready to do to turning, grooving, threading, drilling and broaching. Before 1990 most of those lathe machines came with tailstock to support the longer parts, and Hydraulic steady rests were very rare on these lathes. Most lathes came with conversational and macro programming options to make the CNC programs on the machine without CAM software. These lathes were made with boxway slides and were ready to do bigger depth of cuts. Most of those lathes were with one spindle and one turret only.
Modern 4 Axis lathes can do all the features what 2 axis lathes are ready to do, also modern lathes are offered with multiple spindles, turrets, and hydraulic steady rests. These lathes can do tons more including Milling, polygon cutting, Keyways, gear or spline cutting, and parts are often synchronized with sub spindle to stay the orientation of keyways or milling features. Parts can transfer between spindles to machine the various features. These technological advancements made these multi-axis lathe machines very versatile. These machines with proper hardware and software options are ready to deliver tons of labor at shorter cycle times. Cam software is required to use these machines to full potential. These machines are often bought or added with CMM probe to live the parts while running production.
