Lathe Machine Accuracy-I
Lathe is one of the most versatile and widely used machine tools all over the world. It is commonly known as the mother of all other machine tool. The main function of a lathe is to remove metal from a job to give it the required shape and size. The job is securely and rigidly held in the chuck or in between centers on the lathe machine and then turn it against a single point cutting tool which will remove metal from the job in the form of chips.
Now the most important point to be noticed in the machine is the accuracy of the machine which is observed in Microns(µ) (a unit of length where 1 millimeter is equal to 1000 microns or 0.001mm) and just for the reference a human hair on an average is 50 microns thick i.e. 0.05mm.
Below are the examples of lathe machine accuracy test although this accuracy does depends upon the length of center to center distance. This topic requires a number of articles which we will try to cover most of them.
