Design and Fabrication on Mini Lathe Machine
Design and Fabrication on Mini Lathe Machine report
Abstract: Miniaturization of machine tools to size compatible to target products without compromising machining tolerance leads to enormous saving in energy, space, and resources. Recently model techniques are findings an increasingly wider application in the design of small structures and models of actual machines that are made from appropriate materials. tabletop lathes are preferred over lathes by some professionals like lock smith, jewelers, and designers, engineers for prototyping and fabrication work. This chapter describes the design and development of tabletop mini lathe through 3D modeling and actual fabrication made by design calculations based on machine tool Design procedure that utilize a variable speed electric motor for getting various cutting velocities. It is specially designed to turn metals like steel, copper, aluminum, silver, and gold for carrying operations of external turning, facing, and step tuning. This model is analyzed by study behavior of actual behavior predicted from the knowledge of models. It is the first step to fabricate the mini lathe (150 mm length) for turning of small components with degree of accuracy.
