Common types of machining

There should be a lot of machining knowledge you don’t necessarily know about machining. Machining refers to the process of changing the overall dimension or performance of the workpiece with mechanical equipment. There are many types of machining. Let’s take a look at the commonly used types of machining

Turning (vertical lathe, sleeper): turning is the processing of cutting metal from the workpiece. While the workpiece rotates, the tool cuts into the workpiece or turns along the workpiece;

Milling (vertical milling and horizontal milling): milling is the processing of cutting metal with rotating tools. It is mainly used to process grooves and linear surfaces of shape, and it can also process arc surfaces with two or three axes;

Boring: boring is a processing method to expand or further process the drilled or cast holes on the workpiece. It is mainly used for machining holes with large workpiece shape, large diameter and high precision.

Planing: the main characteristic of planing is to process the linear surface of the shape. Generally, the surface roughness is not as high as that of the milling machine;

Slotting: slotting is actually a vertical planer. Its cutting tools move up and down. It is very suitable for non complete arc machining. It is mainly used to cut some types of gears;

Grinding (surface grinding, cylindrical grinding, inner hole grinding, tool grinding, etc.): grinding is the processing method of cutting metal with grinding wheel. The processed workpiece has accurate size and smooth surface. It is mainly used for the final finishing of heat-treated workpieces to achieve accurate dimensions.

Drilling: drilling is drilling on solid metal workpiece with rotary drill bit; When drilling, the workpiece is positioned, clamped and fixed; In addition to rotation, the drill bit also makes feed movement along its own axis.
