Precision machining process

Precision machining is one of the most important material removal methods, and is a collection of material-working processes in which power-driven machine tools, such as lathes, milling machines, and drill presses are used with a sharp cutting tool to mechanically cut the material to achieve the desired geometry.

Process - The three principal machining processes are classified as turning, drilling and milling

  • Turning is where the workpiece is rotated against the cutting tool. Lathes are the principal machine used in turning
  • Milling is where the cutting tool rotates against the workpiece. Milling machines are the principal machine used in milling.
  • Drilling is where a rotating cutter comes into contact with the workpiece to create holes. Drilling operations are done primarily in drill presses but not uncommonly on lathes or mills.

Other conventional machining operations include shaping, planing, broaching and sawing. Also, grinding and similar abrasive operations are often included within the category of machining.

Machining theory

Surface finishes depend on the substrate being machined, but can include heat treatment for extra hardening and electro electroless plating with various metals to protect the material. CNC machining offers computerised control for additional accuracy and tighter tolerances

Jinlogic has supplied many machined components which are used as bearing surfaces subject to extreme loading in the construction industry. You can be sure that machined parts from jinlogic will meet your requirements.
