Turning is basically a machining process involving the use of a cutting tool, commonly a non-rotary tool bit, which makes a helical tool path with more or less linear movements, as the workpiece keeps rotating. The axes of movement of tool are in straight line or along with a set of angles or curves, however they are linear essentially. Turning is a term commonly used when the cutting action is used for generating external surfaces, while when the same cutting action is brought into practice for internal surfaces (for example any kind of holes) then it is referred to as boring. Therefore, the turning and boring phrase categorizes a large group of processes, which are essentially similar. Cutting faces on workpiece (which are the surfaces lying to the rotating axe’s perpendicular) by using a boring or turning tool, is known as facing and can be included as subset in either category.
CAM-based Traub-make single spindle automatic lathes are used at Gilard, which allow machining of hexagonal and cylindrical rods, varying in range from 3mm to 25mm. Sliding heads for precisely turned parts are also available with a diameter range of 2mm to 6mm. Brass, copper, beryllium copper, aluminium, phosphorous bronze and mild steel are the materials we specialize in machining.
