Lathe Machine Operations “Taper Turning”

Taper turning means, to produce a conical surface by gradual reduction or increase in diameter from a cylindrical work piece. This tapering operation has wide range of use in construction of machines. Almost all machine spindles have taper holes which receive taper shank of various tools and work holding devices. Taper Turning Methods:   A taper may … Read moreLathe Machine Operations “Taper Turning”

Lathe Machine Operations – Plain Turning or Straight Turning, Rough Turning & Finish Turning

Plain Turning or Straight Turning. The work is turned straight when it is made to rotate about the lathe axis, and the tool is fed parallel to the lathe axis. The straight turning produces a cylindrical surface by removing excess metal from the work piece. After facing the ends and drilling the centre, the job is carefully … Read moreLathe Machine Operations – Plain Turning or Straight Turning, Rough Turning & Finish Turning

Shoulder Turning, Thread Cutting & Boring Operation on Lathe Machine

Shoulder Turning: When a workpiece having different diameters is turned, the surface forming the step from one diameter to the other is called the shoulder, and machining this part of the workpiece is called shoulder turning. Thread Cutting: Thread cutting is one of the most important operations performed in a lathe. The principle of thread … Read moreShoulder Turning, Thread Cutting & Boring Operation on Lathe Machine

Lathe Machine Operations – Chamfering & Parting off

Chamfering: Chamfering is the operation of beveling the extreme end of a workpiece. This is done to remove the burrs, to protect the end of the workpiece from being damaged and to have a better look. The operation may be performed after knurling, rough turning, boring, drilling. Chamfering is an essential operation before thread cutting so … Read moreLathe Machine Operations – Chamfering & Parting off

Lathe Machine Operations – Facing, Knurling, Recessing

Facing: Facing is the operation of machining the ends of a piece of work to produce a flat surface square with the axis. This is also used to cut the work to the required length. The operation involves feeding the tool perpendicular to the axis of rotation of the work piece. A properly ground facing tool … Read moreLathe Machine Operations – Facing, Knurling, Recessing
