Processes which remove metal from a workpiece can be broadly classified into three main groups i.e Chip Removal, Chipless removal and metal removed by heat.
Chip Removal Processes..
|Automation||Modern machine tools are generally controlled using CNC /DNC..|
|Drilling||Drilling is the production of holes..|
|Turning||The workpiece is rotated around its axis and a cutting tool is fed parallel to the axis to create a cylinder or at right angles to the axis to create a face|
|Milling||Milling involves feeding the workpiece past a rotating cutter with cutting edges on its side or end or both|
|Grinding||Used to produce a good accurate surface finish...|
|Shaping||Used to produce flat surfaces by reciprocating tool motion...|
|Planing||Used to produce flat surfaces by reciprocating Workpiece motion...|
|Saws||Saws are used to cut short lengths of long sections..|
