CNC Wood Turning Lathe



The cnc wood turning lathe is an efficient wood turning lathe developed according to the needs of the staircase, furniture, crafts and other woodworking industries, also called wood turning lathe machine, wood turning lathe, etc.

This wood turning lathe is available in three different styles: single axis, double axis and triple axis, can machining single, two and three identical workpieces at the same time. Each axis is equipped with two chisels, one for roughing and one for finishing, which can make the finished product at one time without secondary processing of the workpiece.

This machine can turn the workpiece, process the standard cylindrical, conical, curved, ball star and other shapes of complex wooden products or wooden semi-finished products, widely used in the production of Staircase column, curved round, vases, tables and chairs back, European furniture Roman columns, wooden coat racks, washbasin, baseball bats, billiard cues and so on. it is very suitable for replacing the inefficient traditional wood turning lathe with CNC equipment, especially suitable for the mass production of small and medium-sized woodworking products enterprises.

Compared with cnc wood turning carving lathe, this wood lathe is not equipped with electric spindle, so it can’t groove and carve the material, is a wood cnc lathe machine that can only do turning process.

Installation& Debugging

Ⅰ. CNC Wood Turning Carving Lathe Machine Installation

1、Place the equipment horizontally and fix the ground bolt, put the electric control box in a suitable position, connect the electric control line on the body with the electric control box, and pay attention to the aviation plug to be tightened in place.

2, Access to three-phase power supply according to the electricity safety regulations, power introduction in the lower left corner of the electrical box terminal, wiring order as shown in the figure: from left to right, “A, B, C” for the three fire-wire phase, “zero” for the zero phase. Note: the voltage should be 380V ± 10V, the introduction of a single power line cross-sectional area shall not be less than 2 square millimeters. If there is a transformer in the distribution box, only “A, B, C” for the three wires.

3, check the fuselage and the power box are no problem,then, can be powered on, when on machine first time, do not leave the power switch, found that the anomaly immediately shut down.

Ⅱ LT CNC Wood Turning Carving Lathe Machine Debugging

1、After the power on, put the function in 〖Manual〗position, check the equipment without obstacles before operation:

① Check the spindle motor work, press 〖Start〗button spindle motor should rotate, use the adjustment knob to adjust the spindle speed. Note: When there is ‘forward and reverse’, it should be put in the position of 〖Forward〗.

② Press 〖Left〗〖Right〗〖Up〗〖Down〗Key to check whether the knife table works normally, check whether the position detector works normally (Note: when moving to the right with the metal close to the right position detector should be lit and stop the right shift, the knife table back with the metal close to the back position detector should be lit and stop the backward).

2, set the system parameters, put the function in 〖setting〗position, press 〖setting〗key, press ②>system parameter setting〗, set the system data such as ‘travel speed, 1st speed, 2nd speed, 3rd speed, start offset, diameter scaling, electric tool table’ and so on.

3, adjust Chisels Knife, according to 〖① > tool change against the knife set〗 for the knife: ① will be mounted on the knife frame, the knife is generally out of 3 to 4 cm, firmly fixed. ② Select the appropriate wood clamped on the lathe. ③ In accordance with the relevant tips to complete the operation of the knife adjust.

4、Input sample data for trial run processing, check the processing sample, and make corresponding adjustments.

Packing and shipping

Packing is an important link to protect the machine in the transport process not be damaged, After a long time accumulation of investigation, LT divide the packing link into the following aspects, try to do best in every detail.

  1. Checkingall the necessary accessories have been installed and the nameplate or the customer’s logo has been affixed .
  2. Fix some important parts of the machine.
  3. Use the winding film to pack the machine.
  4. Fix the machine on the pallet
  5. Use the wooden box to pack the machine.
  6. Pack wooden box by metal line for reinforcement
  7. Sprayed with attention to the relevant warning labels
  8. Stickmark
  9. the machine will be loaded into the container and reinforced (if not load intocontainer in factory,no need this step)

   10, seal the box, transport to the designated port

Packing and shipping

Maybe  you will have some point need to confirm before purchasing the CNC wood lathe, here are some FAQ for review, hope could help you more understand the related information clearly.

**Tutorials for Wood Lathe:**

Rest assured, comprehensive tutorials encompassing both hardware and software aspects will be included with your lathe. These tutorials are provided in English for your convenience.

**CAD Services and Files for Baseball Bats:**

Worried about your lack of CAD experience? We’ve got you covered. Alongside your lathe, we offer extensive tutorials. Furthermore, we have a selection of pre-existing baseball bat CAD files at your disposal, which we can send to you alongside your lathe.

**Single Phase Power Option:**

If you don’t have access to three-phase power, fret not. We can configure the machine to operate on a 240-volt single-phase power supply.

**Air Requirement for Clamping:**

The air requirement is indeed for the sole purpose of clamping and releasing parts. Even the 0.55kw smallest compressor will suffice for this task, so you won’t need an extensive compressor or tank.

**Maximum Machining Length:**

You can reasonably machine a finished product measuring 35″ or 36″ from 37″ stock or billets using our LT lathe.

**Blade Specifications for Powered Saw Head:**

The powered saw head employs a typical woodworking blade with a 200mm diameter, 60 teeth, and a 30mm arbor hole. When it comes to replacements, it’s not essential for the tooth count to match precisely, but the blade should be designed for wood-cutting purposes. Additionally, you have the option to order 3 or 5 spare saw blades when purchasing the lathe. In case you face difficulties sourcing replacement blades locally, we can provide them for purchase.

**Maintenance Requirements:**

Maintenance is straightforward; please ensure regular cleaning and lubrication of the guide rails and racks.

**Lubrication of Bearings:**

There’s no need to lubricate the bearings at the head or tail end of the machine or at the saw head; they come pre-greased and are maintenance-free.

**Warranty Information:**

Rest assured, all LT CNC wood lathes come with a 12-month warranty from the departure date. During this period, we offer free replacement for broken parts (excluding vulnerable and consumable components).

**Payment Options:**

When it comes to payment, we have two scenarios:

  1. If the lathe is in stock, we’ll provide you with photos and videos for your inspection. Upon your approval, full payment is required via T/T (telegraphic transfer) before delivery.
  2. If the lathe is not in stock, we require a 30% T/T deposit to initiate production. Once the machine is ready, we’ll share photos and videos with you, and the remaining balance should be settled before delivery.

**Replacement Parts after Warranty:**

For any future needs, whether it’s spare parts or support, our dedicated team is always at your service. Simply get in touch with us, and we’ll assist you promptly.
