Which tool must be used for turning in the Lathe machine?
Chamfering tools are lathe turning cutting tools used for creating a furrow on a part. It can also be used to create smooth or hazardous edges on a workpiece.
Which brazing tool is suitable for turning in the lathe machine?
We are instrumental in offering Brazed Carbide Tools, which are used in various industries due to high tensile strength and abrasion resistance. We provide these with a carbide tip and steel body with a coating of nickel. These are extensively used in lathe machines for turning, growing and threading.
How to get finished turning in the Lathe machine?
1. Check to see if the cutting edge of the tool bit is free from nicks, burns, etc. It is good practice to home the cutting edge before you take a finish cut.
2. Set the lathe to the recommended speed and feed rate. The feed rate used depends upon the surface finish required.
3. Take a light trial cut about .250 inches long at the right-hand end of the work to produce a true diameter, set the cutting tool bit to the diameter and set the graduated collar to the right diameter.
4. Stop the lathe, measure the diameter.
5. Set the depth of cut for half the amount of material to be removed.
6. Cut along for .250 inches, stop the lathe and check the diameter.
7. Re-adjust the depth of cut, if necessary and finish turning the diameter. In order to produce the truest diameter possible, finish turning the workpiece to the required size. It is necessary to finish a diameter by filming or polishing, never leave more than .002 to .003 inches for this operation.
