Before the invention of computer numerical controlled lathes such as the CNC Masters 1440 Lathe, machinists needed a lot of skill and patience because everything was done by hand. The process was tedious and required great stamina. Because the operation was entirely manual, it was also much more prone to errors.
Coupling lathes with computers eliminated these issues that put tremendous stress on early machinists. The current generation of lathe operators can rely on sophisticated computer control systems to accomplish complex tasks quickly and reliably.
But the 1440 CNC Lathe’s ease of use is not its only notable feature.
For machinists who want to do short runs without writing a CNC program, the 1440 Lathe can quickly swap between CNC and manual mode at the flip of a switch. This allows machinists to maintain complete control over their turning projects and make subtle design changes on the fly. With a 3 horsepower main spindle motor, the 1440 is also powerful enough to accomplish a variety of turning tasks.
The 1440 CNC Lathe also comes equipped with our own CNC Master MX Software.
This software offers an intuitive interface and a host of features that make it easy to design and execute turning projects of all shapes and sizes. You can even try our Master MX demo to get a feel for the software before you put it to work with your CNC lathe.
