What Is Machining, CNC Machining And The What Is The 3 Principle Machining Processions?

- Apr 11, 2018 -

Machining is any of various processes in which a piece of raw material is cut into a desired final shape and size by a controlled material-removal process. The processes that have this common theme, controlled material removal, are today collectively known as subtractive manufacturing, in distinction from processes of controlled material addition, which are known as additive manufacturing. Exactly what the "controlled" part of the definition implies can vary, but it almost always implies the use of machine tools (in addition to just power tools and hand tools).

CNC Machining is a process used in the manufacturing sector thatinvolves the use of computers to control machine tools. Tools that can becontrolled in this manner include lathes, mills, routers and grinders.

The three principal machining processes are classified as turningdrilling and milling. Other operations falling into miscellaneous categories include shaping, planing, boring, broaching and sawing.

  • Turning operations are operations that rotate the workpiece as the primary method of moving metal against the cutting tool. Lathes are the principal machine tool used in turning.

  • Milling operations are operations in which the cutting tool rotates to bring cutting edges to bear against the workpiece. Milling machines are the principal machine tool used in milling.

  • Drilling operations are operations in which holes are produced or refined by bringing a rotating cutter with cutting edges at the lower extremity into contact with the workpiece. Drilling operations are done primarily in drill presses but sometimes on lathes or mills.

  • Miscellaneous operations are operations that strictly speaking may not be machining operations in that they may not be swarfproducing operations but these operations are performed at a typical machine tool.
