The live center is fitted on the headstock spindle and rotates with the work. The
center fitted on the tail stock spindle is called dead center. It is useful in supporting the other
end of the work. Centers are made of high carbon steel and hardened and then tempered.
So the tip of the centers are wear resistant. Different types of centers are available according
to the shape of the work and the operation to be performed. They are Ordinary center, Tipped center, Revolving center. Lathe Machine Manufacturer Preet Lathe Udyog offers Dead Center/Ordinary Center as standard accessories along with the Lathe Machine and other centers as optional.
