Lathe processing materials and processes

- Jul 08, 2019-

he materials commonly used for lathe processing are steel for easy cutting and copper, and the steel for easy cutting contains sulfur-rich S and phosphorus-containing P. The sulfur and manganese are present in the form of manganese sulfide in the steel, and manganese sulfide is present.


The materials commonly used in modern lathe processing use aluminum alloy materials. The density of aluminum alloy materials is greatly reduced compared with the density of iron and steel materials, and the lathe processing is difficult, the plasticity is strong, the weight of the product is greatly reduced, and the lathe machining parts are greatly shortened. The time comes with the cost reduction that makes aluminum alloy the darling of the aerospace sector.


1. It is easy to ensure the precision of each processing surface of the workpiece; when machining, the workpiece rotates around a fixed axis, and each surface has the same rotation axis, so it is easy to ensure the coaxiality between the processing surfaces;


2, the cutting process is relatively stable; in addition to the discontinuous surface, in general, the lathe processing process is continuous, unlike milling and planing, in the process of a pass, the cutter has multiple cuts and cuts, resulting in Impact


3. It is suitable for the finishing of non-ferrous metal parts; some non-ferrous metal parts have good hardness due to the low hardness of the material itself, and it is difficult to obtain a smooth surface by other processing methods;


4, the tool is simple; the turning tool is the simplest one of the tools, manufacturing, sharpening and installation are very convenient, which is convenient to select a reasonable angle according to the specific processing requirements.
