What is a Lathe?

A lathe is a machine tool that produces cylinder-shaped parts. A lathe holds a cylindrical, or a tube-like, workpiece (wood, metal, or other materials) at one or both ends and rotates it while cutting tools shave off layers of material. This operation is known as turning. Lathes are capable of producing a wide variety of parts, including complex parts with close tolerances, or specifications. Lathes may be operated manually by using one or more handwheels, or automatically using a Computer Numerical Control, or CNC. CNC lathes are electrically powered with a computer to control the components and systems.
