Basics of the CNC Swiss-Type Lathe

"Basics of the CNC Swiss-Type Latheā€ describes the basic functions and components of the CNC Swiss-type lathe, which are a complex type of lathe with a sliding headstock that feeds bar stock through a guide bushing and toward the cutting tools. The guide bushing is the defining characteristic of the Swiss-type lathe. It provides support at the point of contact between the workpiece and the cutting tool, improving rigidity while reducing workpiece deflection and tool chatter. Additionally, CNC Swiss-type lathes are capable of holding a wide variety of cutting tools. CNC Swiss-type lathes are important pieces of equipment in modern machining due to their ability to machine complex, finished parts with minimal human intervention. After taking this class, users will understand how a CNC Swiss-type lathe differs from a conventional lathe as well as be able to describe the basic functions and general machine components of a CNC Swiss-type lathe.
