Bar Turning

Bar Turning is a method of machining which provides high productivity and low production costs due to the shorter throughput times. The surface quality and dimensional tolerances are also high, which in turn leads to less machining at subsequent stages. Conventional machining, one of the most important material removal methods, is a collection of material-working processes in which power-driven machine tools, such as lathes, milling machines, and drill presses, are used with a sharp cutting tool to mechanically cut the material to achieve the desired geometry. Machining is a part of the manufacture of almost all metal products, and it is common for other materials, such as wood and plastic, to be machined. Much of modern day machining is controlled by computers, using computer numerical control CNC machining. Turning operations are operations that rotate the work piece as the primary method of moving metal against the cutting tool. Lathes are the principal machine tool used in turning. In turning, a cutting tool with a single cutting edge is used to remove material from a rotating work piece to generate a cylindrical shape. The speed motion in turning is provided by the rotating work part, and the feed motion is achieved by the cutting tool moving slowly in a direction parallel to the axis of rotation of the work piece.
