CNC Lathe System Training System (Light Duty)



The CNC Lathe System Training System provides training in computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) using a microprocessor-driven, light-duty CNC lathe. The system allows students to practice computer numerical controlled (CNC) code programming and editing, learn to operate lathe components, controls, and tools, set a programmed reference zero, follow the steps necessary to turn a specified part, and apply the machine code language to current lathe technology.

The CNC lathe consists of a horizontal lathe, a head-stock, and a tailstock. It can machine pieces of soft materials such as plastics and waxes, as well as harder materials such as aluminum and brass. Pieces can be turned into a variety of cylindrical bumps, grooves, and hollows. Stock is mounted onto the lathe using a three-jaw chuck that centers the stock and holds it in place.

A computer is used to create part programs with G and M machine codes or their conversation code equivalents. The created programs are uploaded to the lathe's on-board microprocessor, which stores and executes them. Since the CNC lathe connects directly to the serial or Ethernet port of a computer, or directly to a network, no additional interface card is required. The computer is free to be used for any additional applications, since it is not dedicated to the control of the lathe.
