In May of 2021, we built this cnc wood lathe machine for a customer in the USA. It features a small footprint and computer numerical control, which has been favored by users or hobbyists who are making artworks, stair posts, and furniture legs.


Let's take a look at the details of this lathe.

How does the cnc wood lathe work?

Please have a look at the work demonstration below.

Process of build

A 2.2kw 3-phase asynchronous motor serves as the spindle motor of the mini cnc wood lathe. But the machine runs off AC220 volts single phase. Guess why? Because we use a VFD converter to drive the motor. It can serve as a phase converter also.

The lathe adopts rolling ballscrew transmission. In order to make the wood turning cnc machine more durable, we use coupling as the connection between the stepper motor and the lead screw.

X, Y, and Z axes are driven by NEMA34 stepping motors.

The equipped numerical controller is model A132 from RichAuto. It's a dedicated cnc system for wood turning, which runs both DXF and G-code files. It is simple to operate and easy to learn. Therefore, it is very friendly to beginners.

There are two pieces of wood lathe carbide tools. One for roughing, the other for finishing. This construction increases productivity effectively.
