In turning process, a single point cutting tool (normally made up of HSS) is used for removing materials from a fast rotating work piece necessarily by using a machine called lathe.
Level of surface finish achieved: 25-0.025 micro meters
– Variety of materials can be chosen for turning
– Lead time is shorter
– Tight tolerance can be achieved
– Large scrap wastage
– Limited to axis-symmetric circular cross sectional components
– Equipment cost is quite high.
Ideal applications: Ideal for producing different types of shafts and similar axisymmetric components made up of mild steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminum etc.
