Machining operations

Turning, together with milling, drilling and grinding, is one of the most important production methods of machining technology. In these methods, chips are separated from a workpiece to produce the desired shape. Turning is divided into numerous process variants. In addition to flat and round turning for the production of flat or round surfaces, there are variants for thread manufacturing or for any rotationally symmetrical shapes (e.g. cones or balls) that can be produced with NC turning. CNC lathes are used, whose controls steer the tools on the required paths. For larger series, it involves profile turning with tools that contain the form to be produced as a negative. Internal surfaces in hollow bodies can also be turned.

Cold forging

Cold working refers to the plastic deformation of metals below the recrystallisation temperature. Due to the cold work hardening that occurs, the material strength continuously increases. If the increase in strength is undesirable, it must be removed again by a subsequent heat treatment. Cold working is used primarily when narrow dimensional tolerances and good surface properties are desired, or to increase the strength of the materials in a targeted manner.

Hot forging

Hot working or forging is the pressure forming of metals or alloys between two tools with local variation of the cross-sectional shape above the recrystallisation temperature of a metal. It is not absolutely necessary that the material is heated. Cold-forged workpieces have higher strengths. In industrial production technology, forging is usually understood to mean free-forming (open-die forging with tools that do not contain the shape of the workpieces) and die-forging (with tools that contain the shape of the workpieces), and extrusion is also included.
