Dependance on the required power of the electric motor on the CNC Spinner EL-510 lathe according to the depth of cut for turning and facing with CNMG 120408-PM 4325 tool insert
A lathe is a machine that removes metal from a workpiece to the required shape and size. A lathe operates on the principle of a rotating workpiece and a fixed cutting tool. The cutting tool is fed into the workpiece, which rotates about its own axis, causing the workpiece to be formed into the desired shape. The operation by which the excess material is removed from the workpiece to produce a cone or cylindrical shape is called turning, and the operation used to cut a flat surface perpendicular to the workpiece’s rotational axis is called facing. Speed, feed, and depth of cut are important factors that have to be determined according to the power of the CNC Spinner EL-510 lathe using a PCLNR 2525M 12 shank tool and a CNMG 120408-PM 4325 tool insert.
