The woodturning equipment for sale here is a fully automatic wood lathe machine with configuration of auto feed system, one cutter head and one broaching (engraving) head. Autofeed is the biggest advantage of this lathe, with this mechanism, manual loading and unloading is not required any more. Instead of that, it is completely done by itself in auto mode, which increases productivity greatly and saves labor resource for you. In fact, this is the whole point of a truely automatic wood turning machine.

Demo Video: How EagleTec Automatic Wood Lathe Machine Works

You will understand clearly how the auto feed system works from this video. The demo here shows the complete machining process, from wood turn blank feed to the finished job. I hope you enjoy it!

Q: How many pieces can be turned per hour with the fully automatic wood lathe here?

A: It depends. To answer this question, we have to consider the product length, the wood blank dimension (depending on how many times of stepdown are required), and raw material property (depending on feed speed). Let’s illustrate with an example here; assuming the product is 600mm long, the material is beechwood, and one time stepdown is enough to complete the turning, such being the case, we can run the turning at a speed of 1,200mm/min. It is calculated that the pure turning process takes 30 seconds. Except for turning, auto loading and motor starts actions will take approximately 30 seconds. So we can see that it takes 1 minute to complete 1 piece from beginning to end. And one hour gets 60 pieces. The speed here refers to the one that gets a good quality finish.

Advantages of EagleTec Automatic Wood Lathes

• Whole lathe base is cast in one piece from iron, and this structure is obviously superior to the welded one in rigidity and reliability. All foundation planes are finished through a CNC Mill, not hand-made jobs, to get good accuracy. 

• Self-feeder with an air-actuated clamping system improves the wood-turning output greatly. Additionally, this automatic hopper feed mechanism reduces labor resources, in turn, which reduces labor costs for you. Below are pictures of it.

• The controller is a hand-held controller (HHC), which is dedicated to fully automatic wood turning lathes from RichAuto. The model is F1XHAND-H06. It has two language options, English and Chinese. We will set its language to English before delivery. The picture below is a photo of it.

Q: Is the External Computer Needed with The System? 

A: We run the lathe with the individual handheld controller; thus, the machine's operation doesn't require an external computer. However, it would help if you had a computer to draw designs in AutoCAD software in your office.

• As you can see in the above photo, the EagleTec wood lathe comes with English labels for operation buttons and switches. EagleTec is a professional in exporting CNC lathes. 

• Combination of one knife head and one spindle head makes the auto cnc wood lathe can do wood-turning, twist grooving, and wood-carving jobs. The electric spindle is 3.5kw (4.7hp) air-cooled. Please refer to the pictures below.

It is capable of turning square and round (dowel) wood such as beechwood, cedar, pearwood, pinewood, American ash, Maple, and natural wood. For your information, the hopper feed unit also works with dowel (round) pieces. 

Machining Capacity of CNC Automatic Wood Lathe

Wood turning, milling, carving, twist grooving, and carving relief on regular round wood. 

How We Pack It?

The package is safe and robust enough for a long-time sea shipment. The proper shipping way for such lathe machines is by Sea. All the EagleTec CNC lathe machine is packed in this way:

• First, tightly wrapped by PVC films for waterproofing.

• Second, the lathe is fixed on the steel pallet by several plywood stakes to ensure the lathe will not move inside the case.

• Third, the whole set is packed into a strong plywood case.

Features of Automatic Woodworking Lathe with Auto Feed

• Fully automatic design with hopper feed device, output increased, and labor cost decreased.

• Capable of wood-turning, broaching, and relief-carving jobs.

• Adopting RichAuto controller dedicated for auto feed cnc wood lathe machines, which can read DXF files directly, no need to make toolpath (G Code).

• EA-TL1530SF is a 2 axis CNC controlled construction as it has one chisel head only.

• Lathe body is fully cast by iron, so the construction is strong enough for high-speed wood-turning production.

• Advanced servo motor mechanism connecting to rotary with timing belt replaces the old structure of 3-phase asynchronous motor connection to rotary via the clutch mechanism. The positioning accuracy of the lathe is much better and more stable, and the misalignment problem does not happen anymore.  You can check the complete details out here: the first thing you should know before buy a cnc wood lathe

Buyer's Guide

If you need to perform turning and then twist/fluting, please go with a wood lathe equipped with a milling spindle, like the EA-TL1530SF here; if you only need to do turning in your production, then you can buy a lathe without a milling spindle to avoid wasting money on useless configurations. EagleTec CNC will build your lathe exactly to your needs.

How to make an EagleTec CNC Wood Lathe Work?

This mainly covers four major steps.

Step 1. According to the shape and size of the wooden spindle you want to make, we first create a drawing that matches the shape and size of the desired product in AutoCAD and save it as a file in ***.dxf format.

Step 2. We save the completed DXF file on a USB flash drive, then insert it into the USB port of the wood lathe controller.

Step 3. Do the setup work before auto processing, which primely includes setting XY=0, turning speed, cut depth of each pass, etc.

Step 4. Run the file, and the lathe will start working automatically.

Daily Maintenance List

Daily maintenance mainly includes the following three points:

Point 1. Clean the sawdust falling on the machine transmission parts every day to ensure the accuracy of the transmission components and extend their life.

Point 2. Check the wear of turning and fluting tools regularly and replace them in time.

Point 3. Do lubrication for the lathes regularly.
