A CNC lathe is a type of lathe, as the basic term refers to any machine that is designed to precisely cut or machine hard metal materials. Because of modern technology, lathes can now be used to cut a variety of materials and be used in many applications. A CNC lathe is specifically a lathe that is controlled electronically via a computer system. A CNC lathe also has a menu-style interface simulated view of the process for easier use. These types of lathes are quickly replacing older production lathes that operated via manual control. Machines that use Computer Numeric Control are able to cut more precisely, more quickly and more safely than a human being working on his own. While these machines were once expensive, thanks to cheaper computers and free operating software, prices have dropped significantly in recent years.
