Stainless Steel Turning

Turning is a machining process in which a workpiece is held and rotated about its longitudinal axis on a machine tool called a lathe. Cutting tools mounted on the lathe are fed into the workpiece to remove material and thus produce the required shape. Turning operations are defined as the removal of material from external surfaces on rotating workpieces. Related operations on external surfaces, also performed on lathes, include facing, chamfering, grooving or necking, knurling, skiving, threading and cutoff (parting).
