TURNING machining

Subtractive machining procedure: Turning

It is a procedure to create surfaces of revolution through subtractive machining. We call surfaces of revolution those that, if we cut along a plane that is perpendicular to its axis, the section is a circle. The machine used for turning is called a lathe.

On this machine, the workpiece has a circular or rotating motion and the tool linear.

The workpiece to be machined is held by a fastening system (jaw chucks, clamps, faceplates, etc.) and is rotated, and the cutting tool is fixed to a support or turret and moves in the two indicated directions to remove the material.

This movement of the lathe axes can be completely manual or semi-automatic or can be controlled by a CNC.
