• SYIL CNC Lathe Machine: a great turning center for every shop

    Starting from $14,500, SYIL is your choice for an affordable CNC lathe!

    What is a CNC lathe?

    In short:

    • The workpiece is held on the spindle while rotating at high speed.
    • A cutting tool or center drill traces the outer or inner perimeter of the part, forming the geometry.
    • The tool does not rotate and moves along polar directions (radially and lengthwise).

    CNC lathes are extensively used because they can produce parts at a much higher rate and at a lower cost per unit than CNC mills. This is especially relevant for larger volumes. Lathes are ideal for parts that have symmetry around some axis that could be chucked up in the spindle.


    The act of cutting a workpiece on a lathe is called "Turning". Turning is a machining process used to make cylindrical parts in which the cutting tool moves in a linear fashion while the workpiece rotates. Commonly performed with a lathe, turning reduces the diameter of a workpiece to a specified dimension and produces a smooth part finish. A turning center is a lathe with a computer numerical control (CNC). Sophisticated turning centers can also perform a variety of milling and drilling operations.

    Uses of CNC lathe machines

    In CNC turning, the part is mounted on a rotating chuck and material is removed using stationary cutting tools. This way parts with symmetry along their center axis can be manufactured. Turned parts are typically produced faster (and at a lower cost) than milled parts.


    Typically, CNC turning systems (also known as lathes) are used to create parts with cylindrical profiles. Non-cylindrical parts can be manufactured using modern multi-axis CNC turning centers, which are also equipped with CNC milling tools. These systems combine the high productivity of CNC turning with the capabilities of CNC milling and can manufacture a very large range of geometries with (looser) rotational symmetry, such as camshafts and radial compressor impellers.


    With CNC lathe machines, the material being worked is slowly sheared away. The result is a beautifully finished product or an intricate part. Because these machines are so versatile, they are used by many industries to include automotive, electronics, aerospace, firearm manufacturing, sporting, and much more.


    A CNC lathe can be used to produce plane surfaces and screw threads or in the case of ornamental lathes, three-dimensional products that are quite complex. In any case, the workpiece is held firmly in place by one or two centers, with at minimum one being moved horizontally. However, the material can also be secured with clamps or collets.
