Automatic turning of metal and plastic parts - bar turning
Bar turning refers to a type of manufacturing where round parts (screws, bolts, pins, etc.) are machined by removing material from metal bars using a cutting tool.
The milling refers to the removal of material in chip form due to the combination of 2 movements: the rotation of the cutting tool and the advancement of the piece. Milling helps, if the machine is equipped with digital control, to achieve any kind of shape even complex.
The turning is also a machining process that consist in obtaining pieces of cylindrical or conical shape using cutting tools, by removing chips. In turning, the cutting movement is obtained by rotating the clamped piece, and the advancing movement by the movement of the cutting tool.
The parts are machined in small, medium or large production runs on automatic lathes, either conventional (cam) or numerically controlled (bi-spindle, two or three turrets). They are then machined in the bar one after the other, the goal being to attain high productivity and precision. It is also desirable, in general, to produce as few shavings as possible.
Generally, the parts machined in this way are subjected to subsequent operations (heat or surface treatment) before they are used to build sub-assemblies.
We offer you bar turning of mechanical parts in small and medium productions runs from Ø 3 to Ø 65 mm.
