Lathe Machine India Manufacturer and Exporter

Esskay Machines are one of the chief manufacturers and exporters of Lathe Machines which are used to perform turning operations in which unwanted material is removed from a work piece rotated against a cutting tool. The Lathe Machines are used in variety of industrial applications such as metal working, metal spinning, wood turning, metal working, thermal spraying, parts reclamation, and glass working. We use best quality of raw materials in fabricating lathe machines which makes them long lasting and more efficient. Lathe Machines manufacturer truly play an important role in the industrial revolution in India as well as in the rest of the world. Moreover, the growth in the industrial sector in India has also given rise to Lathe Machines India.

Parts of lathe machine:

Lathe was literally the first machine tool which came into existence as a useful machine for metal cutting. The following are some of the important parts of the lathe machine:
Bed: The bed is the back bone of the machine. The bed of Lathe acts as the base on which the different fixed and operations parts of the Lathe are mounted. It carries the headstock and tail stock for supporting the work piece and provides a base for the movement of carriage assembly which carries the tool. It is heavily ribbed and robust constructed in Banka 35, 36, 43 and 60 models. The bed ways align the components of the lathe.
Legs: The legs carry the entire load of machine and in elevating the lathe bed to a working height.
The headstock contains the high precision bearings which hold the horizontal axle, more commonly known as the spindle. Attached to one end of the bed is the headstock. It serves as housing for the driving pulleys, back gears, headstock spindle, live centre and the feed reverse gear.
The quick-change gear-box is placed below the headstock and contains a number of different sized gears. These intermediate gears allow the correct ratio and direction to be set for cutting threads or worm gears.
The apron is fastened to the saddle and it houses the gears, clutches and levers required to move the carriage or cross slide.
Tailstock: The tailstock is a movable casting located opposite the headstock on the ways of the bed. The tailstock is also used for tool-holding for machining operations, such as drilling, reaming, and tapping.
Spindle: This is a hollow horizontal axle with interior and exterior threads on the inboard by which the wood working pieces can be mounted on.
Carriage: This is composed of a saddle and an apron and is used as a mount to the cross-slide.
Cross-slide: This is a flat piece that sits crosswise on the bed which can be cranked at right angles with the bed.
Tool Post: Sits on top of the cross-slide and holds the cutting tool in place.
Tool Rest: A horizontal area in line with the spindle and the tail stock from which hand tools are braced against and levered into the work pieces.
Saddle: The Saddle, an H-shaped casting mounted on the top of the lathe ways, provides a means of mounting the cross-slide and the apron.
