CNC Lathes & Turning Centres

Doosan CNC lathes and turning centres continually raise the bar for productivity, performance and reliability… all of which helps to explain their enduring popularity. From Doosan horizontal single turret CNC lathes to Doosan sliding head CNC lathes, there is a machine available to meet your requirements. 

Why choose CNC lathes and turning centres?

CNC lathes and turning centres revolutionise the production process. These automated machines can create intricate parts with greater precision and speed than humans – increasing the efficiency of your operations. As human error is removed, you can be confident that your parts are made with high accuracy and quality, allowing you to reduce waste and increase your profits.

CNC lathes are highly versatile, meaning you can create any type of part you wish. It’s easy to set up the system and adjust the program to produce a variety of components. 

CNC lathes and turning centres are cost-effective due to their low setup costs and high productivity. A CNC lathe machine can run 24/7, not only does this boost output, but staff can be allocated to more valuable tasks as they’re no longer tied down to the machine.

Difference between CNC lathe and CNC turning centre

It can be hard to spot the difference between a CNC lathe and a CNC turning centre at first glance as they perform the same type of task. Both machines can spin material whilst cutting it to create the desired shape – and both offer an automated solution. However, the CNC turning centre goes one step further than a CNC lathe because it can offer automated tool changing, live rotating tools and more.

Put simply, the CNC turning centre is an upgrade of the CNC lathe.

Do I need a CNC lathe or a CNC turning centre?

The ideal tool for you depends on the type of production you run. A CNC lathe is suited to short production runs for simple parts such as pins and bushings. This machine is a great choice if you’re looking to carry out quick repairs as it’s easy to set up and run from a CNC program or manually.

A CNC turning centre is preferred for production and material removal. A CNC turning centre is slightly harder to set up compared to the CNC lathe and you can only operate it via a controller. Yet this choice can perform many more automated tasks at a higher rate than a CNC lathe.

What type of industry are CNC lathes suitable for?

CNC lathes are typically used to manufacture parts for the automotive, aerospace and engineering industries. Some wider applications include the electronics, defence and healthcare sectors.
