What are the types of machine tools?

Designed for manufacturing metal components, machine tools come in various shapes and sizes. Some modern tools have integrated computer systems, such as a CNC router, which makes the process a lot less manual than those without. Here are some of the different types of machine tools:

  • Bench grinders - used for sharpening tools or shaping metal, these have a solid base and are secured to a workbench.
  • Machine presses - can cut shapes using pressure; these can be automatic or manual
  • Metal tabletop shears - used for cutting through metal plate
  • Pillar and bench press drills - for drilling holes of various diameters into metal
  • Lathe - rotates metal or wood at high speeds to enable the operator to shape it
  • Milling machine - uses rotary cutters to shape the metal
