The webinar, which is based on the "Tiny Drillers" feature published in the August issue of Cutting Tool Engineering magazine, delves deeper into the products and strategies recommended for deep-hole microdrilling by Kennametal Inc. and Sandvik Coromant Co. In addition, a representative from MAQ AB discussed the company's vibration-damped turning tool that is 8 mm in diameter, which was the subject of a sidebar to the main feature article in CTE's August issue.

  • turning


    Workpiece is held in a chuck, mounted on a face plate or secured between centers and rotated while a cutting tool, normally a single-point tool, is fed into it along its periphery or across its end or face. Takes the form of straight turning (cutting along the periphery of the workpiece); taper turning (creating a taper); step turning (turning different-size diameters on the same work); chamfering (beveling an edge or shoulder); facing (cutting on an end); turning threads (usually external but can be internal); roughing (high-volume metal removal); and finishing (final light cuts). Performed on lathes, turning centers, chucking machines, automatic screw machines and similar machines.
