Lathe is one of the most common and basic workshop machines in a workshop. Lathe as it is known today was created since the Egyptian Civilization and was popularized by the UK as one of the industrial machines that produces components or parts.
Lathe is a machine / tool that uses the principle of rotation as a basis. The workpiece will be gripped by the Chuck / Vise and rotated against the Cutting Tools / Chisel / Cutting Knife thus giving us the desired contour / shape / shape. The function of the Lathe is diverse and can include materials such as: iron, stainless steel, brass, silver, wood and plastic. In working on a workpiece, there are several basic functions, namely:
The five processes above are general processes that can be carried out by lathes and each process requires different chisels / lathe blades, different spindle speed and feeding parameters and different results on the workpiece.
Roughing is a repeated process of cutting basic materials quickly, thickly and roughly. The purpose of roughing is to make the basic shape / shaping roughly so that the remaining material that must be peeled / turned by the finishing / cutting knife is not much.
Cutting / Finishing is the process of cutting the final material so that it becomes a final product with an accurate size and according to tolerance. Usually the cutting / finishing work does not last long and is not repeated and uses high speed so that the results can look smooth and shiny.
Grooving is the process of cutting material to produce a groove or bag. The width of a gutter or coke depends on the blade used.
Threading is the process of cutting material so that the material can have the desired thread. Parameters of Threading / Thread / Thread can be seen in the column listed on the lathe and adjusted to the blade.
Chamfering / Tapering is the process of finishing a material so that the edges of the material are not sharp. This is useful to ensure that the product is safe for humans and facilitate the use of the product. On the other hand, Chamfering / Tapering can add to the aesthetics and quality of a final product.
Main Components of a Lathe Machine
Lathe Head (Headstock)
The head of the lathe is located on the part that has a spindle / place for rotating goods. On the headstock there are also levers that are useful for adjusting the spindle rotation speed. The Lathe Head / Vise Lathe can be changed to a vise 3 clamps or 4 grippers.
Tail Lathe (Tailstock)
The tail of the lathe is opposite the lathe head. Tail Lathe functions on a lathe with two centers, to avoid bending the workpiece during the turning process, for example in turning a long axle, so that the long axle is not flexible and does not sway when turning. The tail of the lathe also serves so that the object being turned can get a good center / tolerance.
Carriage is a support table and tool station carrier / where the lathe blade rests. Without this table, the lathe will not function because there is no knife to carve objects. This table is also mostly equipped with automatic feeding and travel to make it easier for the operator to control it & has a coolant hose to spray drum oil for cooling down friction of the workpiece.
Lathe Table (Lathe Bed)
The Lathe Table is the basic framework of the lathe and is the strength / core of the lathe that cannot be fooled. Lathe table and its width is the foundation of the head, tail of the lathe and also the sled. The width of the lathe is very influential for the stability of the workpiece cutting and the feeding strength of the lathe. The wider the bed, the more sturdy the machine and more tread so that the work can be eaten thickly without even shaking.
Hi all, Good Day to you
We haven't updated our blog since last April because of our shortage in time.
While we have the time needed to update our blog. Today i would like to thank Mr. G From GT in Jember, Indonesia for investing on SUPREME FIBER LASER Machine from Maju Jaya Machinery.
The training began and lasted for 5 days which include the preparation, installation and teaching the operator to fully operate & maintain the machine. For these 5 days we do our best to tune the machine into the best condition for optimum performance. Below are our photo with our customer.
Today, it's been 2 months since we last installed and train GT and i just have the time to update the blog.
GT has been our loyal customer since early 2000's and also had purchase two Press Brake / Bending machine.
Here are some example for the product sample (Stainless Steel 2 mm) that we cut at our customer site and we also have uploaded video of our SUPREME FIBER LASER CUTTING machine.
That is all. Thanks folk for reading this blog. :)
Hi, this is MJM and we would like to greet you with our best products: CNC Machines! We want to give you some insights on CNC machine and invite you to come to our workshop located at Surabaya, East Java. We have various CNC machine imported from Japan and China ready in our workshop. Please feel free to visit us!
But before that, some of you might wonder on why you should choose or buy CNC machine?
MJM provides industrial machines for metal cutting and finishing, and our main products are CNC machines. CNC stands for Computer Numerically Controlled, it means that the machine will be controlled by some instructions such as position coordination generated by computer. CNC machine uses a rotating cutting tool to cut out or carve material parts. CNC is very versatile and able to cut variety of different materials. There are many types of CNC machine, but we provide two types of the most popular CNC machines; CNC lathe and CNC Wire Cut machines.
Hi all, Starting from Today, we've got a brand new product that will be on the market. These are the fiber lasers machine, fiber lasers machine are capable to cut through Stainless-Steel, Mild steel and Carbon Steel in an efficient and extremely productive method. Its speed of cutting is up top 20cm/second an its product is very refine. This is possible because the transmission that we tend to use is neither ballscrew nor Standard Rack and Pinion Gear. The precision is also supported by it's slant type design.
Now our website is Bilingual, one in English and the other one is Indonesian. Feel free to visit both of the website depend on your language selection.
Secondly, the reason why this website needs Indonesian version is because of the eligibility and to help the SEO(Search Engine Optimization) of Google to place this web in the first page/ top rating. To maximize your SEO, this weebly article could help you greatly in starting your own website.
Another Tips and Trick to get your website on the top of Google search list, you can:
That's all for today post folks! Thank you for your attention!
Its been a while since the last update of our blog. For awhile have focused my shift in learning Edgecam and MasterCam for Vertical Machining Center Purposes. Today we have machine from JiangHai famous brand that have been on the Maju Jaya Machinery Market for the last 7-8 years, come to our Warehouse.
Industrial machinery is capable of realise AutoCAD drawing into reality. Each of the parts of the design will be done by 1 or multiple machines. Here below is example of AutoCAD drawing design that is a project of a SGU student Thesis, Jesse Naftali.
