What is "Turning / Lathing" ?

Updated: Jun 1, 2022

Lathe turning is a type of cutting process that involves machining a raw material. It is a machining method in which a cutting tool called a "bite" is applied to a rotated material to cut away a portion of the material to create the desired shape.

In lathe turning, various shapes can be machined by changing the bites according to the machining method.

In lathe turning, a rod material with a circular cross section is used for the material in most cases in order to cut a rotated material. However, by changing the "chuck" that holds the rod material in place, it is possible to process square-shaped materials and materials with more variety of shapes.
