The general purpose single spin le automatic lathes are wi ely use for quantity or mass
pro uction (by machining) of high quality fasteners; bolts, screws, stu s etc., bushings, pins,
shafts, rollers, han les an similar small metallic parts from long bars or tubes of regular section
an also often from separate small blanks. Unlike the semiautomatic lathes, single spin le
automats are :

OY preferably an essentially use for larger volume of pro uction i.e., large lot pro uction
an mass pro uction
OY use always for pro ucing jobs of ro , tubular or ring type an of relatively smaller size.
OY run fully automatically, inclu ing bar fee ing an tool in exing, an continuously over a
long uration repeating the same machining cycle for each pro uct

OY provi e with upto five ra ial tool sli es which are move by cams mounte on a cam
OY of relatively smaller size an power but have higher spin le spee s

mutomatic lathe ± classification of single spin le automatic lathe ± principle of automatic lathes
± automatic screw cutting machines ± multi spin le automatic lathes ± use of cams in automats.


m lathe in which the work piece is automatically fe an remove without use of an

operator. Cutting operations are automatically controlle by a sequencer of some form.

These lathes are mo ifie from the single spin le automatic lathes. They have 2 to 8 spin les.
Operations are one simultaneously in all the spin les. Hence the rate of pro uction is increase .
