Lathe Eases Precision Turning, Meets Toolmaker Standard
The 16" × 60" engine lathe from Palmgren removes heavy metal and facilitates precision fine tolerance turning.
The 16" × 60" engine lathe from Palmgren offers high metal removal rates and facilitates precise, fine-tolerance turning. Its features include a digital readout, glass scales, a headstock for rough cuts and quiet power for fine finishing. The #9684524 lathe meets the DIN 86056 toolmakers precision lathe standard. These features contribute to user convenience, accuracy and consistent performance, according to the company.
UNCC researchers introduce modulation into the tool path. Chip breaking was the goal, but higher metal removal rate is an intriguing secondary effect.
Turning hardened materials to grinding-like accuracies takes the right combination of part, machine and process parameters.
Form tools are traditionally associated with non-CNC machines, but in certain applications they make sense on modern machines as well.
