Q: What's the production capacity of the fully automatic wood lathe?

A: The production capacity of our fully automatic wood lathe varies depending on several factors. This includes the product length, the size of the wood blank (taking into account the number of step-downs required), and the characteristics of the raw material (influencing the feed speed). Let’s break it down with an example: If your product is 600mm long, made from beechwood, and a single step-down suffices for the turning process, you can run the lathe at a speed of 1,200mm/min. In such a scenario, the actual turning process takes about 30 seconds. Additionally, you should allocate approximately 30 seconds for auto loading and motor startup actions. Therefore, from start to finish, it takes 1 minute to complete one piece. This means that in one hour, you can produce up to 60 pieces. It’s important to note that this speed is optimized for achieving a high-quality finish.

Subject

The Automatic Wood Lathe not only has an automatic loading device, also can add configurations according to the different processing functions. for example, if the workpiece needs to be grooved or engraved, an engraving spindle can be added; if the workpiece needs to be polished, a polishing brush can be added, drilling functions is same. In a word, all the functions that can be done on the cnc wood turning machine and cnc wood turning slotting lathe can be added to this machine.

ATC CNC Wood Lathe have many different models, below are some regular styles. We can also develop new models according to your actual working requirements.

Controller

Automatic CNC Wood Lathe is generally available with two control systems, summarised as a professional high accessory desktop operating system called NEW990TDca/TDcb/16iT in the high speed atc wood cnc lathe and a stand-alone handle control system called DSP A136. Both systems provide easy access to all functions of the machine. The interface languages are both English and Chinese, and the language of the control system will be changed to English before the machine is shipped. The machine is supplied with an operator’s manual and a video, which can be learned in 30 minutes.

Machine Structure Frame

Automatic CNC Wood Lathe is a one-piece cast iron bed with no welded seams on the whole body, never deformed. The overall weight is about 1800kgs. It is the best bed in the CNC industry. There is no obvious vibration of the machine body during machining, which can maximise the stability and precision of machining.

Distribution Box

Independent and compact control cabinet, some important electronic parts of the machine, such as motor drive, spindle inverter, control card, transformer, switching power supply, etc. are installed in this cabinet and connected to the machine through the electric wire. This design can minimise the impact of vibration on the electronic components when the machine is working, making the overall performance of the machine more efficient and stable.

Automatic pneumatic clamping system

The automatic pneumatic clamping system, work together with the auto-loading system mentioned above, automates material loading, chucking, and unloading, eliminating the need for manual intervention and significantly enhancing overall processing speed.

Follow-rest

Equipped with the steady rest ,it is designed to secure slender billets with the utmost stability. By default, its diameter measures 66mm, is suitable to process the 67mm diameter materials,but we can customize it to different sizes based on your specific requirements
