Cnc lathes and mills are used for what exactly? any indiscriminate this type of craftsmanship person replaced by tech?
these machines are used to grind or cut steel, alum, plastic, etc. a lot of them have already gone to cnc and some other numerical controls, machinist be paid good money running them, programmers make more, but the top of the smudge for money is the electronic tech who repairs them, check it out MM
cnc lathes are used for making minitature chess peices/bowling pins/cakes/catipilers.
cam cnc is a tool used for making a wooden board (engrave) your first name or anything you would like on the wooden board. Source(s): im in middle academy and my elective is tech.
(it is the best elective ever)
I am a CNC machinist. CNC lathes can be used to produce anything a manual lathe can. This is also true of CNC lathes.
CNC machines are much more economical to use than their manual counterparts (at lowest possible for high-volume production) due to their repeatability, their lower per-piece cost, their ability to be left unattended, and their effortlessness of control. Once programmed and debugged, a CNC lathe or mill can theoretically produce millions of exact pieces, provided the cutting tools (Titanium-carbide inserts on tool steel cutting tools) are maintain.
By the way, the lathe is the only tool that can be used to reproduce itself.
