wood lathe cuts surfaces of various shapes, such as: rotary solids, rollers, cones, balls, external and internal threads, etc. It works mainly with wood, as well as some wood-based materials. We also distinguish metal lathes. The tools used in this type of machine are chisels, drills or turning tools.

Principle of lathe operation

stuff umieszcza się w kłach lub uchwycie tokarskim, dzięki czemu narzędzie może precyzyjnie obrabiać powierzchnię. W zależności od modelu maszyn, zasada działania jest różna. Starsze modele tokarko – kopiarek posiadają kopiały ( szablony ), które zamocowane są za materiałem obrabianym. Szablony te służą za wzór, który odzwierciedlony jest na skrawanej powierzchni. Nowe typy tokarek posiadają specjalistyczne oprogramowania. Po wprowadzeniu projektu do programu komputerowego, maszyna wykonuje wzór na materiale.

Thanks to the great development of technology, lathes have been replaced by advanced CNC machining centers. They differ from ordinary turning machines in that they have extensive electronics and numerical controls. As a consequence, the elements are made with greater precision, and above all in a shorter time of production. Operating machinery requires extensive knowledge and knowledge of software.

Advantages of modern lathes - copiers:

  • High precision and quality of workmanship,
  • Very high performance
  • Only one operator is needed to operate the machine,
  • The machine does not require physical effort,
  • Numerical control
  • They will make all possible shapes,
  • The durable construction of the machine allows for multi-shift operation
  • Wide use of machine tools etc.


Wood lathes is used primarily in carpentry and furniture factories in the production of furniture such as tables, chairs, wardrobes, etc. In addition, these machine tools are great in both small workshops and mass production on a global scale.
