Lathe machine part 2

Posted on at

In part 1 I told you about its definition, formal parts names….so, in this blog I will tell you about its functionality working …proper maintenance and all stuff about this important machine in any industry….

We can do maximum operations ever on this machine that’s why this machine is basically very important….now we are starting with remaining parts name…


we can locate our job in chuck which has different sizes and patterns. Formally 3 jaws chuck using in industries because of his universal functions but on the other hand 4 jaws chuck also uses for different operations on their needy basis..

In 3 jaws chuck we can locate or hold cylindrical or round job/work piece. These 3 jaws move up and down with chuck key s for holding work piece. Where’s 4 four jaws chuck uses for rectangular or irregular shapes work piece.

The only difference between in these two chucks is that, in 3 jaws chuck we can locate or dislocate our work piece without moving ever jaws slot. We can put chuck key in any jaws slot and we can easily hold/un hold our work piece… where in 4 jaws chuck we put keys in every jaw and tight or lose the job.

If any jaw of 3 jaws chuck is destroys we should replace whole chuck instead of one jaw where’s ion 4 jaws chuck we do change only destroyed jaw.
