CNC Lathe
« on: February 02, 2007, 10:11:18 PM »
I really do not know much about CNC lathes.

I am interested in this lathe because it can do complex threading.  http://www.microkinetics.com/btlathe.htm Threads that have multiple leadings, tapered threads, and almost any pitch.   There is a special indexer that you use to control the lathe spindle.

My question is do most CNC lathes have this capability?  When I look up other CNC desk top lathes they say they can do threading but they do not call out the functions like on this web page.

On a CNC lathe with spindle control and an index pulse you can do as many starts on a thread as you like.  Taper threads are also possible single and multi start.

If you want some examples just ask.
