CNC lathes (Computer Numerical Controlled) are rapidly replacing the older production lathes due to their ease of setting and operation. They are designed to use modern carbide tooling and fully utilize modern processes. The part may be designed and the tool paths programmed by the CAD/CAM process, and the resulting file uploaded to the machine. Once this is set and trialled the machine will continue to turn out parts requiring only the occasional supervision of an operator.
A CNC lathe is controlled electronically via a computer menu style interface from here, the program may be modified and then displayed at the machine, along with a simulated view of the process. Operators of CNC lathes needs a high level of skill to perform the process, however the knowledge base which is required is a lot more general in comparison to the older production machines where intimate knowledge of each individual machine was considered essential. These machines are often all set and operated by the same person, where the operator will supervise a small number of machines.
The design of a CNC lathe has evolved yet again more recently although the basic principles and parts are still recognizable, the turret holds the tools and indexes them as needed. The machines are often totally enclosed, due in large part to occupational heal and safety issues.
With the advent of cheap computers and free operating systems and CNC software, the entry price of CNC machines has plummeted and is now even affordable for hobbyists.
