What is the difference between a horizontal lathe machine and a vertical lathe machine? 

These two machines are very similar. The main difference is that a vertical lathe is stood on its end so the production is completed in an up and down motion. Whilst a horizontal lathe machine works in a side to side movement. 

Vertical lathes are ideal for projects that focus on a single side, such as large metal plates. They are superior to horizontal lathe machines in situations where workpiece sagging could be a factor.

Horizontal turret lathes are capable of a wider range of shapes and sizes, and workpieces are kept clean during machining – something you don’t benefit from with a vertical lathe. In addition, many horizontal lathe machines incorporate automatic bar-stock feeders to increase productivity.

The type of lathe you pick is down to preference however, the horizontal turret lathe is the popular option. If you’re working in a restricted space, the vertical lathe may be the better choice.
