What is Plain Turning?
Plain Turning is the process in which a cutting tool shapes a workpiece while it moves. Plain Turning needs a constant operator to supervise the lathe. A Lathe is a machine used to form workpieces while being rotated.
There are three main Lathes: An Engine Lathe which can complete most machining jobs, the Turret Lathe and Special Purpose Lathes which are both used for mass production or specialist parts. Different turning processes and produce different shapes and effects on materials, straight cut, curved and grooved. Plain turning uses simple single-point cutting tools.
