CNC lathes are versatile machines used in the metalworking industry for turning and shaping materials. They come in a variety of sizes and configurations to suit different applications. Buying a used CNC lathe can be a cost-effective way of acquiring the machine you need for your business, but it's important to ensure you're getting a machine that's in good condition and meets your requirements.

Before acquiring one, there are several key points you should check to ensure the machine is fit for purpose. These include:

Machine condition: Check the overall condition of the machine, paying particular attention to any signs of wear and tear or damage. Look for signs of rust, cracks, or other visible defects that could affect the performance of the machine.

Age of the machine: Check the age of the machine and whether it's been well-maintained over the years. Older machines may have outdated technology and could be less reliable than newer models.

Control system: Check the type of control system the machine uses and whether it's compatible with your existing software and equipment. CNC lathes typically use either Fanuc or Siemens control systems, but there are other options available.

Spindle speed: Check the spindle speed of the machine and whether it's suitable for the materials you'll be working with. Different materials require different spindle speeds, so it's important to choose a machine with the right specifications.

Workpiece size: Check the maximum workpiece size the machine can accommodate and whether it meets your requirements. CNC lathes come in a range of sizes, so it's important to choose a machine that's suitable for the size of the parts you'll be working with.

By checking these key points before acquiring a CNC lathe, you can ensure that you're getting a machine that's fit for purpose and will meet your business needs. Exapro's metal category offers a range of used machines from trusted sellers, so you can be confident that you're getting a quality machine at a competitive price.

What are the main tools and options

CNC turning lathes come in a variety of options to suit different applications and industries. Here are some of the most common options you may encounter:

Bed length and swing diameter: come in different bed lengths and swing diameters to accommodate different workpiece sizes. Longer bed lengths are ideal for machining longer parts, while larger swing diameters can accommodate larger diameter parts.

Number of axes: can have different numbers of axes, ranging from 2-axis to 9-axis machines. The more axes a machine has, the more complex parts it can produce.

Control system: use different types of control systems, such as Fanuc or Siemens, to operate the machine. Each system has its own set of programming options and capabilities.

Tooling system: can use different types of tooling systems, such as turret or gang tooling, to hold and position the cutting tools. Turret tooling allows for quick and precise tool changes, while gang tooling is more suitable for simple parts with fewer tool changes.

Spindle speed and power: The spindle speed and power determine how quickly and efficiently it can cut materials. Higher spindle speeds and power are suitable for cutting harder materials.

Chuck type: can use different types of chucks, such as three-jaw or four-jaw chucks, to hold and rotate the workpiece. Three-jaw chucks are ideal for holding symmetrical parts, while four-jaw chucks are more versatile and can hold asymmetrical parts.

By understanding the different options available you can choose a machine that meets your specific needs and requirements.

How does lathes work

Lathes work by rotating a workpiece while a cutting tool removes material from the surface of the workpiece to create the desired shape. The cutting tool is typically controlled by a computer program, which is loaded onto the machine and guides the movement of the tool along the surface of the workpiece.

The workpiece is held in place by a chuck, which can be adjusted to accommodate different sizes and shapes of workpieces. As the chuck rotates, the cutting tool moves along the surface of the workpiece, removing material to create the desired shape. The cutting tool can be guided by a number of different mechanisms, such as a turret or a tool post.

They can produce a wide range of pieces, from small precision parts to large, heavy-duty components. Some common examples of pieces that can be produced include:

  • Shafts and pins: can be used to produce long, thin parts with high precision, such as shafts and pins.
  • Valves and fittings: can produce complex shapes with tight tolerances, making them ideal for producing valves, fittings, and other components for the plumbing and HVAC industries.
  • Aerospace components: can be used to produce components for the aerospace industry, such as turbine blades and engine parts.
  • Automotive components: are often used to produce components for the automotive industry, such as engine blocks, crankshafts, and camshafts.
  • Medical implants: can produce small, intricate parts with high precision, making them ideal for producing medical implants such as hip replacements and dental implants.

 

What is the price of a CNC lathe

The price can vary widely depending on a number of factors, such as the size and capacity of the machine, the level of automation and complexity of the control system, and the manufacturer and supplier of the machine.

Generally speaking, a small, entry-level CNC lathe with basic features and a smaller work area can cost anywhere from 12 000€ to 48 000€. Mid-range CNC lathes with larger work areas and more advanced features can cost between 48 000€ and 120 000€. High-end CNC lathes with the largest work areas, advanced automation capabilities, and the most advanced control systems can cost upwards of €240,000 or more.

For a used machine, the prices ranges between 22 000€ and 75 000€.

It's important to note that these prices are just general guidelines, and the actual price will depend on many factors specific to the machine and the supplier. Additionally, there may be additional costs, such as installation, training, and ongoing maintenance and support. It's important to work closely with a trusted supplier and carefully evaluate all costs and features before making a purchase.
