Have you heard about metal machining? If you did, then you might as well be interested about the three processes involved in it. You will find these facts through this page together with extra processes used by other industries.

Metal machining is defined as the tool in materials processing and removal. It uses a variety of machine tools ranging from drill presses to lathes to milling machines. Added to this, a sharp cutting tool will be needed in order to obtain the geometrical size you desire for a certain job. Behind all these tools are a variety of machine processes used by the metal industry.

Drilling is the first thing that will come to mind in the list of basic machining processes. This process is done by merely putting holes on the main material. Drill presses are employed together with rotating cutters or any tool that has cutting edges on it. Cutting edges are considered responsible for putting holes on a particular work piece.

This is that basic process that takes charge of cutting a metal surface to straighten it up. It also makes use of cutting edges that can help provide the shape of the metal product you want. Cutting edges, in this regard, move in a slower manner. Notably, this process has two more other processes on its list namely peripheral milling and face milling.

This is the last among all basic metal machining processes. The main difference of turning with the first two processes relies on the fact that it makes use of only one cutting edge. This process is of great help when what you want out of the process is a product that follows the cylindrical shape.

Boring is one of the extra machining processes to take note of. This is considered a result of the drilling process in that it makes a larger hole out of what the latter has already made. This is basically used in final steps of product manufacturing.

Burnishing is also one process to take note of when it comes to this type of metal service. The main purpose of this process is to make the output shinier. It can make use of either the lathe, milling tool or the drill press. Some industries may use both single and multiple-edged equipment to come up with the product’s desired shine.

These are but just some of the many metal machining processes employed by several industries focusing on such services. There are surely a lot more to learn about when it comes to this industry.
