Metal products are widely used in various industries. To obtain a part of the desired size and shape, the metal is machined. The workflow includes the use of professional equipment. The specific processing method will depend on the quality of the metal and the type of product required.
Machining is carried out:
— under pressure when no chips are removed;
— by cutting, in which case the chips are removed.
Such processing of metal products is the initial stage for the manufacture of finished products, in order to obtain the desired part, you need to know the exact dimensions and shape.
Processing should be carried out in specialized workshops, where all the appropriate conditions must be created for this: a large area and mechanical equipment.
To date, there are several types of equipment used for processing metal parts:
— gear hobbing;
The working process directly depends on the quality of the metal, the surface of the product, the accuracy class.
Metal turning is carried out thanks to cutters. The part is fixed in a special spindle rotating at a certain speed. On such machines, you can process cylindrical, conical and shaped products.
To obtain a hole of the required diameter on the workpiece, drilling is used, where the main role is played by such a tool as a drill. Typically, the drilling method does not produce ultra-precise machining, so it is considered a semi-rough or rough workflow.
Grinding is used when it is necessary to improve the roughness properties of the part, as well as to remove the metal layer. With the help of abrasive circles, the final processing of products is carried out. During operation, the workpiece is very hot so that the metal does not crack and lose its original appearance, a special coolant is used.
Milling can be attributed to one of the most interesting methods, the process is carried out thanks to a variety of cutters on machines. Processing can be of several types:
Metal processing with cutters can be finishing, semi-finishing, as well as roughing, resulting in products such as wells, dowels, undercuts.
