||With the 5800 CNC Wood Lathe, students can create parts using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-assisted manufacturing (CAM), practice computer numerical controlled (CNC) code programming and editing, and apply the machine code language and computer software interface to current lathe technology.
The CNC Wood Lathe also can be used to teach students to operate lathe components, controls and tools; identify axis; set a programmed reference zero; and follow the steps necessary to machine a specified part.
The 5800 CNC wood lathe features an interactive controller, which enables students to create and simulate their own CNC programs either offline or on the machine before actually machining a part. Besides being able to turn wood, the 5800 CNC wood lathe can handle light metals, plastics, and particleboard.
This lathe includes a 36-inch lightweight bed that will machine pieces that measure 36 inches between centers. The lathe is manufactured for durability, classroom use, and safety. All CNC wood lathes can be used with Lab-Volt Automation CNC Level 4 software.
