Lathe Operations: Facing

Image
Facing Operations Facing is the process of removing metal from the end of a workpiece to produce a flat surface. Most often, the workpiece is cylindrical, but using a 4-jaw chuck you can face rectangular or odd-shaped work to form cubes and other non-cylindrical shapes.

When a lathe cutting tool removes metal it applies considerable tangential (i.e. lateral or sideways) force to the workpiece. To safely perform a facing operation the end of the workpiece must be positioned close to the jaws of the chuck. The workpiece should not extend more than 2-3 times its diameter from the chuck jaws unless a steady rest is used to support the free end. Cutting Speeds

If you read many books on machining you will find a lot of information about the correct cutting speed for the movement of the cutting tool in relation to the workpiece. You must consider the rotational speed of the workpiece and the movement of the tool relative to the workpiece. Basically, the softer the metal the faster the cutting. D…

How To Prepare Yourself For a Die and Tool Maker

Device and bite the dust producers are at the highest point of the step in the metalworking exchanges. They are extremely adaptable in utilizing their hands for making parts and additionally machines to create high exactness parts. Their capacities go past that of the commonplace mechanical engineer. They are fit for planning and manufacturing instruments with no supervision. With these abilities, apparatus and kick the bucket creators are a gigantic holding in any assembling office.




  1. Expert essential math. Comprehend expansion, subtraction, and division. A little shop trigonometry is useful for figuring jolt rings and discovering the length of triangles. Some essential polynomial math can likewise be helpful for applying handbook recipes.

  2. Learn machine drafting. Suitable abilities are incorporated in professional and specialized schools' machining projects. Figure out how to make and decipher mechanical drawings.

  3. Enter an apprenticeship program at an apparatus and pass on shop while in secondary school if conceivable. As a student, you will do straightforward undertakings like penetrating, deburring, and clearing at the outset. The errands will get to be additionally difficult over the long haul. You will take in the machine, factory and surface processor. Apprenticeships commonly last 2 to 4 years.

  4. Study machine instrument innovation at a decent professional exchange school. Projects shift from school to class. Verify you are learning at one that has different machines to gain from. A wire EDM (electrostatic release machining) device would be decent. Additionally, verify they have great CNC (machine numerically controlled) programming courses. Attempt to get involved involvement in a shop as opposed to concentrating on just in a classroom. The heart of your training will be in the sorts of activities you will be making in the course. A common machine instrument engineering project will most recent two years.

  5. Get a duplicate of the Machinery Handbook and allude to it regularly. This is a fantastic reference for noting any machining issue.

  6. Purchase a set of great superb exactness apparatuses like 1-2-3 inch micrometers, and a square set, alongside a 7- or 11-drawer mechanical engineers tool stash. An electronic caliper is an in addition to likewise.




  • Try to stay far from bland instruments in light of the fact that these appear to be less solid. Rather, put resources into brilliant instruments like Starrett and Mitutoyo, top names in the exchange.

  • If cash is tight, acquire instruments bit by bit, as you need them, about whether, until you have your own particular set. Get the ones you require generally first.




  1. When you arrive a vocation, concentrate on picking up experience. Gain from veteran device and pass on producers. They can and frequently do offer numerous tips they have adapted through the years.

  2. Chat with other apparatus and pass on producers on the web in different discourse discussions particularly concerning CNC programming.

  3. Read metalworking exchange distributions in your extra time.

  4. In the event that you need to further your vocation in the apparatus and bite the dust exchange, you may need to move into supervision or educating. A Bachelor's degree in very nearly any field alongside apparatus and bite the dust experience would be extremely valuable in getting a manager's employment in assembling and/or instruct
