Center Lathe Machine

One of the oldest machine tools is a lathe machine. In 1797, an Englishman, Henry Maudslay, designed the first screw-cutting lathe which is the forerunner of the present-day high speed, heavy-duty production lathe.

The lathe helps remove metal from a piece of work to give it the required shape and size. This is accomplished by holding the work securely and rigidly on the machine and then turning it against a cutting tool that removes metal from the work in the form of chips and shavings.

Tool Grinding Machine

A grinding machine, often shortened to grinder, is one of the power tools or machine tools used for grinding purposes. It uses an abrasive wheel as the cutting tool and each grain of the abrasive on the wheel's surface cuts a small chip from the workpiece via shear deformation. Tool grinding machines are used to produce and re-sharpen tools.

Ram-driven mechanism and feed mechanism.
