or drawing.TURNING: Turning is the process whereby a single point cutting tool is parallel to the surface. Those types of turning processes can produce various shapes of materials such as straight. a piece of material (wood. The turning processes are typically carried out on a lathe. or stone) is rotated and a cutting tool is traversed along 2 axes of motion to produce precise diameters and depths. Tapered turning . and can be of four different types such as straight turning. conical. considered to be the oldest machine tools. The starting material is generally a workpiece generated by other processes such as casting. extrusion. taper turning. forging. profiling or external grooving. plastic. That is. metal. When turning. Turning operations: Turning specific operations include: Turning This operation is one of the most basic machining processes. Turning can be either on the outside of the cylinder or on the inside (also known as boring) to produce tubular components to various geometries. or grooved workpiece.[1] Turning can be done on the external surface of the part as well as internally (boring). the part is rotated while a single point cutting tool is moved parallel to the axis of rotation. curved.

It involves moving the cutting tool at right angles to the axis of rotation of the rotating workpiece. lathe e) using a form tool e) by the offsetting of the tailstock . It is frequently the first operation performed in the production of the workpiece. Grinding produces higher dimensional accuracy of roundness and cylindricity. Facing is part of the turning process. Grooving can be performed on internal and external surfaces. Parting This process is used to create deep grooves which will remove a completed or partcomplete component from its parent stock.hence the phrase "ending up". However. Hard turning Hard turning is a turning done on materials with a Rockwell C hardness greater than 45. when applied for purely stock removal purposes.N. competes favourably with rough grinding. Grooving is like parting. except that grooves are cut to a specific depth by a form tool instead of severing a completed/part-complete component from the stock. and often the last.C. when it is applied for finishing where form and dimension are critical. as well as on the face of the part (face grooving or trepanning).this method more suited for shallow tapers. as distinct from the longitudinal feed (turning). It is typically performed after the workpiece is heat treated.a) from the compound slide b) from taper turning attachment c) using a hydraulic copy attachment d) using a C. . grinding is superior. Hard turning. The process is intended to replace or limit traditional grinding operations. This can be performed by the operation of the cross-slide. if one is fitted.

Generally referred to as single-point threading.e. tapping of threaded nuts and holes a) using hand taps and tailstock centre b)using a tapping device with a slipping clutch to reduce risk of breakage of the tap threading operations include a)all types of external and internal thread forms using a single point tool also taper threads. or 55° nose angle) Either externally. the machining of internal cylindrical forms (generating) a) by mounting workpiece to the spindle via a chuck or faceplate b) by mounting workpiece onto the cross slide and placing cutting tool into the chuck. double start threads. This process utilizes standard drill bits held stationary in the tail stock or tool turret of the lathe. or within a bore. Knurling The cutting of a serrated pattern onto the surface of a part to use as a hand grip using a special purpose knurling tool Reaming Threading both standard and non-standard screw threads can be turned on a lathe using an appropriate cutting tool.Non-specific operations include: Boring i. Drilling is used to remove material from the inside of a workpiece.

threads. up to 2" diameter threads but it is possible to find larger boxes than this. Some smaller ones are bench mounted and semi-portable. A trained operator can accomplish more machining jobs with the engine lathe than with any other machine tool. The larger lathes are floor mounted and may require special transportation if they must be moved. and special purpose lathes. Field and maintenance shops generally use a lathe that can be adapted to many operations and that is not too large to be moved from one work site to another. leadscrew with single or multistart threads. or other materials by causing the workpiece to be held and rotated by the lathe while a tool bit is advanced into the work causing the cutting action. Turret lathes and special purpose lathes are usually used in production or job shops for mass production or specialized parts. wood. The engine lathe is ideally suited for this purpose. while basic engine lathes are usually used for any type of lathe work. Lathes LATHE A lathe is a machine tool used principally for shaping pieces of metal. turret lathe. Lathes can be divided into three types for easy identification: engine lathe. worms as used in worm wheel reduction boxes.

moving the knee up and down require considerable effort and it also becomes difficult to reach the quill feed handle (if equipped). described below. However. turret mills are only practical as long as the machine remains relatively small. Milling Vertical milling machine. As machine size increases. Therefore. .Vertical mill In the vertical mill the spindle axis is vertically oriented. There slide 7: knee 8: base are two subcategories of vertical mills: the bed mill and the turret mill. allowing plunge cuts and drilling. The most common example of this type is the Bridgeport. the table moves only perpendicular to the spindle's axis. and by moving the knee. larger milling machines are usually of the bed type. while the spindle itself moves parallel to its own axis. In the bed mill.  Turret mills are generally considered by some to be more versatile of the two designs. 1: milling cutter 2: spindle cutters are held in the spindle and rotate on its axis. Turret mills often have a quill which allows the milling cutter to be raised and lowered in a manner similar to a drill press. column 5: table 6: Y-axis giving the same effect).  A turret mill has a stationary spindle and the table is moved both perpendicular and parallel to the spindle axis to accomplish cutting.

Depending on the amount of time and temperature.740 °F)) which liberates carbon as it decomposes. case hardening. Heat treatment techniques include annealing. the . COMMONLY USED TERMS & OPERATIONS: CARBURIZING Carburizing is a heat treatment process in which iron or steel is heated in the presence of another material (in the range of 900 to 950 °C (1. to achieve a desired result such as hardening or softening of a material. Heat treatment involves the use of heating or chilling. The most common application is metallurgical. properties of a material. Heat treatments are also used in the manufacture of many other materials. heating and cooling often occur incidentally during other manufacturing processes such as hot forming or welding. normally to extreme temperatures. precipitation strengthening. and sometimes chemical. It is noteworthy that while the term heat treatment applies only to processes where the heating and cooling are done for the specific purpose of altering properties intentionally.

. alloys and glass. while the core remains soft and tough as a ferritic and/or pearlite microstructure. the higher carbon content on the outer surface becomes hard via the transformation from austenite to martensite. it produces a hard workpiece surface. workpiece cores largely retain their toughness and ductility.4 mm). In steels. When the iron or steel is cooled rapidly by quenching.25 inches (6. workpieces are in contact with a high-carbon gas. and it produces case hardness depths of up to 0.affected area can vary in carbon content. liquid or solid. Longer carburizing times and higher temperatures lead to greater carbon diffusion into the part as well as increased depth of carbon diffusion. tempering is done to "toughen" the metal by transforming brittle martensite or bainite into a combination of ferrite and cementite or sometimes Tempered martensite. Change in material properties Work material properties Mechanical Effects of carburizing  Increased surface hardness  Increased wear resistance  Increased fatigue/tensile strengths   Physical Grain Growth may occur Change in volume may occur Chemical  Increased surface carbon content TEMPERING Tempering is a heat treatment technique for metals.[1] This manufacturing process can be characterized by the following key points: It is applied to low-carbon workpieces.

After the carbon diffuses. This refines the grain size and improves the uniformity of microstructure and properties of hot rolled steel. NORMALISING Normalizing Is a heat treatment process (predominantly used on Steels) It makes the material softer but does not produce the uniform material properties of annealing. the result is nearly pure ferrite with body-centred structure. INDUCTION HARDENING . The process is less expensive than annealing.Precipitation hardening alloys. Carbon atoms were trapped in the austenite when it was rapidly cooled. forming the martensite. The brittle martensite becomes tough and ductile after it is tempered. Normalizing is used in some in the production of large forgings such as: railroad wheels and axles and on some bar products. the microstructure can rearrange and the carbon atoms can diffuse out of the distorted body-centred-tetragonal (BCT) structure. Precise control of time and temperature during the tempering process are critical to achieve a metal with well balanced mechanical properties. like many grades of aluminum and superalloys. This delicate balance highlights many of the subtleties inherent to the tempering process. A material is normalized by heating it to a specific temperature and then letting the material cool to room temperature outside of the oven. The martensite becomes strong after being tempered because when reheated. are tempered to precipitate intermetallic particles which strengthen the metal. In metallurgy. there is always a trade-off between strength and ductility. Tempering is accomplished by a controlled reheating of the work piece to a temperature below its lower critical temperature. typically by oil or water quenching.

which have proved to be very effective in extending the component fatigue life and wear resistance. Many mechanical parts. QUENCHING . The passage of current through this coil generates a very intense and rapidly changing magnetic field in the space within the work coil. in order to improve wear behavior. gears. The workpiece to be heated is placed within this intense alternating magnetic field where eddy currents are generated within the workpiece and resistance leads to Joule heating of the metal. increasing the hardness and brittleness of the part. The quenched metal undergoes a martensitic transformation. Among these treatments. before the delivering.45% are most suitable for this process.Induction hardening is a form of heat treatment in which a metal part is heated by induction heating and then quenched. are subjected to surface treatments. Wear resistance behavior of induction hardened parts depends on hardening depth and the magnitude and distribution of residual compressive stress in the surface layer. The effectiveness of these treatments depends both on surface materials properties modification and on the introduction of residual stress. This operation is most commonly used in steel alloys. A widely used process for the surface hardening of steel. whilst the hardness of the case can be within the range 37/58 HRC. It determines in the work-piece a tough core with tensile residual stresses and a hard surface layer with compressive stress. induction hardening is one of the most widely employed to improve component durability. The core of the component remains unaffected by the treatment and its physical properties are those of the bar from which it was machined. The components are heated by means of an alternating magnetic field to a temperature within or above the transformation range followed by immediate quenching.40/0. and springs.[1] A source of high frequency electricity is used to drive a large alternating current through a coil. Carbon and alloy steels with an equivalent carbon content in the range 0. such as shafts. Induction hardening is used to selectively harden areas of a part or assembly without affecting the properties of the part as a whole.[3] Induction surface hardened low alloyed medium carbon steels are widely used for critical automotive and machine applications which require high wear resistance.

For instance. quenching is the rapid cooling of a workpiece to obtain certain material properties.In materials science. sand or shot are propelled with compressed air on to the substrate to remove millscale. from occurring by only providing a narrow window of time in which the reaction is both thermodynamically favorable and kinetically accessible. oil. the temperature at which austenite becomes unstable. This allows quenching to start at a lower temperature. resulting in amorphous metal or "metallic glass". SAND BLASTING Sand blasting is a process where in abrasives such as grit. such as phase transformations.As per the IS and BS standards. In metallurgy. It prevents low-temperature processes. In steel alloyed with metals such as nickel and manganese. it can reduce crystallinity and thereby increase toughness of both alloys and plastics (produced through polymerization). the eutectoid temperature becomes much lower. the place will be covered by tarpaulin because of dust particle should not spreaded other places. in which case the steel must be rapidly cooled through its eutectoid point. dirt. Extremely rapid cooling can prevent the formation of all crystal structure. High speed steel also has added tungsten. rust. making the process much easier. it is most commonly used to harden steel by introducing martensite.
