    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.

Don Graham, manager of turning products and education services at Seco Tools Inc., Troy, Mich., discussed "Productivity Improvements Resulting from Coating Texturing" during the Fast Track Seminar series hosted at the Cutting Tool Engineering booth during IMTS 2010.
