23.3 Lathes and Lathe Operations
Lathes generally are considered to be the oldest
machine tools.
The maximum spindle speed of lathes typically is
around 4000 rpm but only may be about 200 rpm
for large lathes.
Although simple and versatile, an engine lathe
requires a skilled machinist, because all controls
are manipulated by hand.
Consequently, it is inefficient for repetitive
operations and for large production runs.
The rest of this section will describe the various
types of automation that usually are added to
improve efficiency.

23.3.1 Lathes components
Bed
The bed supports all major components of the
lathe.
Beds have a large mass and are built rigidly,
usually from gray or nodular cast iron.
The top portion of the bed has two ways with
various cross-sections that are hardened and
machined for wear resistance and dimensional
accuracy during turning.
23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making

23.3.1 Lathes components
Carriage
The carriage or carriage assembly slides along
the ways and consists of an assembly of the
cross-slide, tool post, and apron.

The headstock is fixed to the bed and is equipped
with motors, pulleys, and V-belts that supply
power to a spindle at various rotational speeds.

23.3.1 Lathes components
Tailstock
The tailstock, which can slide along the ways and
be clamped at any position, supports the other
end of the workpiece.
It is equipped with a center that may be fixed
(dead center), or it may be free to rotate with the
workpiece (live center).
Drills and reamers can be mounted on the
tailstock quill (a hollow cylindrical part with a
tapered hole) to drill axial holes in the workpiece.

23.3.2 Workholding devices and accessories
Workholding devices are important, particularly in
machine tools and machining operations, as they
must hold the workpiece securely.
A chuck usually is equipped with three or four
jaws.
Three-jaw chucks generally have a geared-scroll
design that makes the jaws self-centering.
The jaws in some types of chucks can be
reversed to permit clamping of the workpieces
either on the outside surfaces or on the inside
surfaces of hollow workpieces, such as pipes and
tubing.
23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making
2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
23.3.2 Workholding devices and accessories
A and b are draw-in type collet. The workpiece is placed in the collet hole, and the conical surfaces
of the collet are forced inward by pulling it with a draw bar into the sleeve
23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making
2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
23.3.2 Workholding devices and accessories
Chucks are available in various designs and
sizes.
Their selection depends on the type and speed of
operation, workpiece size, production and
dimensional accuracy requirements, and the jaw
forces required.
By controlling the magnitude of jaw forces, an
operator can ensure that the part does not slip in
the chuck during machining.

23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making
2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
23.3.2 Workholding devices and accessories
Power chucks, actuated pneumatically or
hydraulically, are used in automated equipment
parts using industrial robots.

Face plates are used for clamping irregularly
shaped workpieces. The plates are round and
have several slots and holes through which the
workpiece is bolted or clamped.

23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making
2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
23.3.2 Workholding devices and accessories
Mandrels are placed inside hollow or tubular
workpieces and are used to hold workpieces that
require machining on both ends or on their
cylindrical surfaces.

23.3.2 Workholding devices and accessories
Accessories
Several devices are available as accessories and
attachments for lathes. Among these devices are
the following:
1. Carriage and cross-slide stops, with various
designs to stop the carriage at a predetermined
distance along the bed.
2. Devices for turning parts with various tapers.
3. Milling, sawing, gear-cutting, and grinding
attachments.
4. Various attachments for boring, drilling, and
23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making
2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
23.3.3 Lathe operations
The cutting tool is attached to the tool post,
which is driven by the lead screw, and removes
material by traveling along the bed.
Form tools are used to produce various shapes
on solid, round work-pieces by moving the tool
radially inward while the part is rotating.
As a rule
The formed length of the part should not be greater
than about 2.5 times the minimum diameter of the part,
the cutting speed should be set properly.
cutting fluids should be used.
23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making
2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
Boring on a lathe is similar to turning. It is
performed inside hollow workpieces or in a hole
made previously by drilling or other means.
Drilling can be performed on a lathe by mounting
the drill bit in a chuck in the tailstock quill.
The tools for parting, grooving, thread cutting, and
various other operations are specially shaped for
their particular purpose or are available as
inserts.

23.3.4 Types of Lathes
Bench lathes
As the name suggests, these lathes are placed
on a workbench or a table.
They have low power, are usually operated by
hand feed, and are used to machine small
workpieces.
Toolroom lathes have high precision, enabling the
machining of parts to close dimensional
tolerances.

23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making
2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
23.3.4 Types of Lathes
Special-purposes lathes
These lathes are used for applications (such as
railroad wheels, gun barrels, and rolling-mill rolls)
with workpiece sizes as large as 1.7 m in
diameter by 8 m in length and capacities of 450
kW.

23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making
2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
23.3.4 Types of Lathes
Tracer lathes
These lathes have special attachments that are
capable of turning parts with various contours.
Also called duplicating lathes or contouring
lathes, the cutting tool follows a path that
duplicates the contour of the template, similar to a
pencil following the shape of a plastic stencil.
However, operations typically performed on a
tracer lathe have been replaced largely by
numerical-control lathes and turning centers.

23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making
2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
23.3.4 Types of Lathes
Automatic lathes
Lathes have been automated increasingly over
the years; manual machine controls have been
replaced by various mechanisms that enable
machining operations to follow a certain
prescribed sequence.
In a fully automatic lathe, parts are fed and
removed automatically, whereas in
semiautomatic machines, these functions are
performed by the operator.
Automatic lathes may have a horizontal or
vertical spindle and are suitable for medium- to
high-volume production. why not small production
23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making
2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
23.3.4 Types of Lathes
Turret lathes
Turret lathes (either bar type or chucking type)
are versatile, and the operations may be carried
out either by hand, using the turnstile (capstan
wheel), or automatically.
Once set up properly, these machines do not
require highly skilled operators.
Vertical turret lathes also are available; they are
more suitable for short, heavy workpieces with
diameters as large as 1.2 m.

23.5.2 Material-removal rate in drilling
The material-removal rate (MRR) in drilling is the
volume of material removed by per unit time. For
a drill with a diameter D, the cross-sectional area
of the drilled hole is D
2
/4.
The velocity of the drill perpendicular to the
workpiece is the product of the feed, f (the
distance the drill penetrates per unit revolution),
and the rotational speed, N, where N=V/D.
Thus,

23.5.7 Design considerations for drilling
The basic design guidelines for drilling are as
follows:
1. Designs should allow holes to be drilled on flat
surfaces and perpendicular to the drill motion.
2. Interrupted hole surfaces should be avoided or
minimized for improved dimensional accuracy,
drill life, and to avoid vibrations.
3. Hole bottoms should match, if possible, standard
drill-point angles; flat bottoms or odd shapes
should be avoided.

23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making
2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
23.6 Reaming and Reamers
Reaming is an operation used to (a) make an
existing hole dimensionally more accurate than
can be obtained by drilling alone, and (b) improve
its surface finish.
The most accurate holes in workpieces generally
are produced by the following sequence of
operations:
1. Centering
2. Drilling
3. Boring
4. Reaming
23. Machining Processes used to Produce Round Shapes: Turning and Hole Making
2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
23.6 Reaming and Reamers
For even better accuracy and surface finish, holes
may be burnished or internally ground and honed.
A reamer is a multiple-cutting-edge tool with
straight or helically fluted edges that remove very
little material.

23.7 Tapping and Taps
Tapered taps are designed to reduce the torque
required for the tapping of through holes.
Bottoming taps are for tapping blind holes to their
full depth.
Collapsible taps are used in large-diameter holes;
after tapping has been completed, the tap is
collapsed mechanically and is removed from the
hole without rotation.
Chip removal can be a significant problem during
tapping because of the small clearances involved.

2005 Pearson Education South Asia Pte Ltd
23.7 Tapping and Taps
Tapping may be done by hand or with machines
such as (a) drilling machines, (b) lathes, (c)
automatic screw machines, and (d) vertical CNC
milling machines combining the correct relative
rotation and the longitudinal feed.
Tap life can be determined with the same
technique used to measure drill life.
Self-reversing tapping systems also have been
improved significantly and now are in use with
modern computer-controlled machine tools.
