may be done on a lathe
or a milling machine.
Boring is a machine operation in which
the work is in contact with a single point

Broaching is an
The teeth of a broaching tool are equally spaced
operation that
broaching so that as the tool advances into the workpiece,
completes the cutting in
each tooth removes a specified amount of metal.
one stroke or cut.

Broaching can be done on both internal
and external surfaces.

Drilling is an
economical way of
removing large amounts Used for last removal of stock on preparation for
of metal to create semi- other operations like boring, reaming, or tapping.

drilling. The lathe is used for producing cylindrical The lathe may be used for: work. Non-precision grinding is done when accuracy is not important. is a cutting technique Non-precision grinding is a free-hand operation precision used when the grinding done on a pedestal or bench grinder. The workpiece is lathe rotated while the cutting boring. controlled by the trepanning machine. finishes are required. grooving. knurling. facing. Machinists may use hand or machine reamers depending on the job they are performing. This is grinding and very smooth extremely useful in acquiring smooth fnishes. turning. polishing. grinding does not need to be accurate. Reaming is a sizing operation that removes reaming a small amount of metal from a hole already drilled. tool movement is threading. . Non-precision grinding non. The reamer is the tool used for this operation. tapping. The lathe is primarily used for cylindrical work. Precision grinding as often used as a finish machining process. Precision grinding is a cutting technique used Precision grinding allows very small amounts of precision when close tolerances material to be removed from a workpiece.
