Geminis CNC Horizontal Lathe Machines

Under the trademark of the prestigious market leader GEMINIS, we develop horizontal and multiprocess CNC and Axle Turning Lathes of the highest technology. Lathe machines are machine tools that rotate a workpiece around an axis to perform turning, drilling, among other actions. Lathes are used across industries to produce a wide variety of parts, including but not limited to the automotive industry, railway industry, oil & gas industry, power generation industry, and the naval industry.

Features of Horizontal Lathes

In a horizontal lathe, the workpiece is mounted onto a horizontal axis and rotated against a cutting tool to shape the part. Horizontal CNC Lathe Machines offer high rigidity and shock resistance, easy adjustments, rotation precision, and precision retention. CNC lathes are computer-controlled lathes that help automate the process of working from programmed designs.

Lathe Machine FAQs

What is the Difference Between a Horizontal and a Vertical Lathe?

Horizontal lathes have a main spindle that is oriented horizontally in which the machinist works the material in a side-to-side motion. Conversely, vertical lathes have main spindles that are oriented vertically and must be operated up and down.

What can you Machine with a Lathe?

Standard materials such as wood, metal, and plastics can be used in a lathe. Some objects you can produce using a lathe include:

  • Cue Sticks
  • Musical Instruments
  • Crankshafts
  • Candlesticks

How do I Choose the Right Lathe?

To choose the correct lathe, you must identify the purpose of the CNC machine. Consider the type of material you will be machining, the output required, and the jobs you will perform; this will help you determine the spindle bore, centre height, and motor power required.
