Manual Lathes

For turning work that requires a softer touch, RTC utilizes the experience of our Manual Lathes staff. Unlike CNC Lathes, Manual Lathe operation requires a greater hands-on approach with more human intervention. This capability allows us to produce extremely high quality parts with glass scale tolerances. Manual Lathes are primarily used to develop prototypes, as well as aiding with quick jobs to prevent production schedule disruption.

Capabilities:

  • Pieces 24” Ø × 82”
  • Materials: mild steels, alloys, stainless steel and alloys, titanium, zirconium, brass, tool steels, aluminum, and multiple plastics
  • Glass scale tolerances
