Essential Features to Expect From a CNC Desktop Lathe

Essential Features to Expect from a CNC Desktop LatheThe CNC desktop lathe is the natural extension of larger, freestanding CNC machines. Despite its size, a desktop lathe can still perform many of the same functions that larger units can, albeit at a smaller scale. These machines are also usually designed with powerful control technology built in, and they typically feature the same components used in bigger machines.

Although desktop lathes are smaller, they must be as durable as a full-scale machine.

All of the components of a desktop lathe must be heavy-duty, and its machine construction—from the wax instruments to the steel parts—must be very hard-wearing. Like its larger counterparts, a desktop lathe must support and display CAM files and converted DXF files.

With a CNC desktop lathe, you can learn and apply the same CNC commands that are used in big industrial CNC machines. These smaller machines are often easier to operate and install, however, due to the fact that they are designed specifically for desktop manufacturing approaches.

Plus, the desktop machines from CNC Masters come with complete technical support services as well.

If you’ve thought about investing in a CNC lathe in the past, but lack the room or resources for a large freestanding unit, a desktop model is a great option to consider. At CNC Masters, we can work with you to help you find a machine that suits your unique needs. We offer a diverse selection of CNC lathes that can be used for a variety of applications.
