The Main Facts About Turning Tools
Turning tools are used for metal cutting on the outside diameter of components, and they are used on Engine lathes, Vertical lathes, Chuckers and other lathes. Top quality tungsten carbide tips are brazed on turning tools and the tool’s cutting edges are ground on the tips. Turning tools are manufactured on precision machines.
During the process of turning, a work piece is rotated and a cutting tool is traversed on two axes of motion to create specific diameters and depths on the work piece. There are three different categories of turning processes, namely taper turning, straight turning, profile turning. These processes can create a wide range of shapes of materials, namely conical, straight, and curved work pieces.
Generally, single point cutting tools are used in turning. A particular set of ideal tools angles are used in each of the different types of turning processes. The turning processes are normally carried out on lathes.
TecTools supplies a wide range of turning tools, namely Straight Turning Tools, Cranked Turning Tools and Offset Turning & Facing Tools.
Straight Turning Tools are used as metal cutting tools in machine shops for a large variety of materials on Engine lathes, Turret lathes, Vertical Turret lathes and Chuckers. They are ideally used in tough applications.
Cranked Turning Tools are used as metal cutting tools for a wide range of materials. They are used on Turret Lathes, Engine lathes, Vertical Turret lathes and Chuckers. They are primarily used in the industry for chamfering of components, rough turning and facing.
Offset Turning and Facing Tools are carbide cutting tools used as metal cutting tools in machine shops for a large variety of materials on Engine lathes, Turret lathes, Chuckers and Vertical Turret lathes. These tools are very tough and are mainly used for finish turning and facing of components with square shoulders.
