Mechanical lathe machining is a mechanical processing of a metal, steel or aluminium and involves the removal of the chip. The piece is fixed to a spindle and placed in rotation while the cutting tool moves along the piece giving it the desired shape.
Metal lathe machining can be structured in two steps: roughing where the most part of the extra material is removed using resistant and strong tools. A second phase, the finishing, where the metal piece is processed to obtain a surface that conforms to the project. To carry out turning operations a lathe is used which can be of different types.
When performing a mechanical lathing process, it is necessary to evaluate and set the turning parameters to achieve the desired product. The lathing parameters vary according to the material to be processed and the size of the piece and the tool used. The main parameters to be calculated are: cutting speed (given by the speed of the workpiece spindle and tool feed), axial cutting depth, radial cutting depth.
There are different types of lathe processing: CNC, single or multi-spindle lathing and manual.
