In this blog, we will cover the basics of turning machining, including what it is, its different types, the process, and its advantages.
One of the areas in which we excel is turning machining. At White Rock Manufacturing Solutions, we pride ourselves on being experts in the manufacturing industry.
What is Turning Machining?
Turning machining is a type of machining process that involves removing material from a workpiece by rotating it against a cutting tool. The cutting tool is moved along the surface of the workpiece to remove material & create the desired shape. Turning machining is typically used to create cylindrical or conical shapes, but can also be used to create flat surfaces or other shapes.
3 Types of Turning Machining
There are several types of turning machining, including:
CNC (Computer Numerical Control) turning uses a computer-controlled machine to automate the turning process. This type of turning machining is highly accurate & can produce complex shapes with ease.
Manual turning involves a skilled operator using a lathe to manually control the turning process. This type of turning machining is often used for smaller production runs or for prototyping.
Multi-axis turning involves using a lathe that can move along several axes simultaneously. This type of turning machining is often used for complex shapes that cannot be produced using traditional turning methods.
The Turning Machining Process
The turning machining process involves several steps:
The workpiece is prepared by selecting the appropriate material & size for the desired shape. The workpiece is then mounted onto the lathe.
The appropriate cutting tool is selected based on the material of the workpiece & the desired shape.
The cutting tool is moved along the surface of the workpiece to remove material & create the desired shape. This process is repeated until the desired shape is achieved.
Once the desired shape is achieved, the workpiece is finished using a variety of techniques, including sanding, polishing, or coating.
Turning machining is a vital process in the manufacturing industry, with the ability to create a wide variety of shapes & sizes quickly & efficiently.
