What are Bernardo lathes ? What is a lathe ?

With Bernardo lathes - respectively Bernardo lathe - various rotation bodies are produced, such as cylindrical turned parts, conical or spherical bodies or even free forms. The rotating so-called turning tool, which is clamped on the tool slide, serves as the actual tool. To be precise, lathes are the forerunners of today's lathes: They do not have a mechanical drive - the tool is guided by hand - and, unlike lathes, have a maximum of one tool slide. Due to the colloquial use of the term "lathe", however, the term is still partly used today in the sense of "lathe". Classical lathes, on the other hand, are today only common in the field of turning in woodworking.

Lathes exist in many different designs and with varying degrees of automation. In our shop you will find many different types of lathes or lathes from Bernardo and ELMAG and Holzmann, which are suitable for every kind of user: A small lathe or a Bernardo lathe for model making differs considerably in its dimensions and areas of application from high-performance machines such as cyclic lathes, which are intended for use in industrial mass and heavy processing. In addition to centre width and height, the machines also differ in swing diameter, bed width, spindle bore, speed range, travel, quill and motor power. Apart from center lathes and bar lathes, our page lists table-top, universal and cycle lathes.

The wide range of products is rounded off by the versatile machining centres, which, in addition to turning, can also be used for drilling and milling operations, for example. On request, you can obtain extensive lathe accessories for all machines, with which you can extend the field of application of your machine tool.

To make it easier for you to find the right Bernardo lathe, the individual subtypes of the available lathe types in this category are briefly explained below.

A feed screw lathe is operated manually and is today the most popular and widely used variant of its type. It enables the application of a wide range of turning processes and can be easily extended. Machine tools of this type are usually constructed horizontally with a left-hand main spindle and right-hand tailstock. Apart from its versatility, the reason for the popularity of this type of lathe is its easy compatibility in the field of single-part and small-lot production of workpieces and its relatively low purchase costs.

Universal lathes are characterized by their variable range of application: They can be used to process a wide range of materials of different sizes, such as steel, non-ferrous materials and plastics. This makes the machines suitable not only for training companies, but also for repair shops or variable use in production. They are mainly used in series production. Technically speaking, universal lathes are either automated

Devices such as advanced center lathes and drawbar lathes or numerically controlled universal lathes - CNC lathes.

Cycle lathes enable heavy and varied, automated work on workpieces in cycles, from chip removal, recessing and thread cutting to drilling. They are primarily designed for the economical production of individual units or for precise small-batch production.

Bench lathes are ideal for hobbyists and DIY enthusiasts who need a lathe in their private workshop or garage. Since small dimensions and at the same time bearable costs are required here, the handy table lathes offer a good compromise between quality, size, sufficient performance for home work and acquisition costs.

Machining centers, on the other hand, are machine tools that enable the complete machining of workpieces: they combine the functionalities of lathes with options for milling and drilling. In addition, some models feature automated tool change. Machining centers are not only suitable for professional use among precision mechanics, but also for training companies and training workshops.
