As we know that each machine tool is specified for range of activities called as stipulated work. Similarly lathe machine is also used for carrying out certain amount of operations such as turning, facing, tapping and many more operations. If we consider turning operation, only one job can be turned on lathe machine at a time. But if many similar jobs are to be turned on lathe with same dimensions it is needed that the fabricator must have sheer accuracy and has to be done in limited amount time, which is very difficult for any machine operator. Yes, these types of jobs can be done on CNC Computer Numerical Control machine but buying CNC machine is a costly affair for small scale industries. So to overcome these problems an attachment is made in such a way that the template is made of which the design is copied on the job by fixing the template temporarily on the lathe machine. So by making such type of attachment many similar kind of jobs can be manufactured in less amount of time and with great accuracy and better surface finish. Here a detailed study of Copy Turning Lathe Attachment is carried out in such way that it illustrates how the attachment is attached to lathe machine and how the work is done.
