What is the difference between turning and milling
Introduction
In general, turning and milling are indispensable methods in machining, but they have their own strengths in the form of work, the use of tools, processing parts, etc., and need to be selected according to the actual processing needs. For the need for high-precision, rotationally symmetrical parts, the choice of turning is a more appropriate choice; for the need to process a variety of shaped structural parts, the choice of milling is a more appropriate choice.
Details
First, the working mode is different
Turning and milling way of working has obvious differences. Turning is the use of workpiece rotation, at the same time the tool along the axis of the workpiece for cutting processing methods, its processing is the workpiece does not move, the tool in the case of rotating cutting. Milling is the use of milling cutter in the horizontal or vertical direction, while the tool will rotate the processing method, its processing is the tool is constantly moving in the process of cutting the workpiece.
Second, the characteristics of different tools
Turning and milling tools used are also different. Turning is mainly used turning tool, turning tool tip is generally right-angle or arc shape, can be used for easy processing of internal and external surfaces, contour processing. Milling is the use of milling cutter cutting, milling cutter shape a variety of different, including plane milling cutter, ball milling cutter, T milling cutter, etc., can be used for a variety of angles, shapes of parts cutting and grooves, holes, processing, and so on.
Third, the processing of different scope of application
Turning and milling in the processing of the scope of application also has its own strengths. Turning is suitable for processing disc-shaped, shaft-shaped and other rotationally symmetric parts, commonly used in lathe processing of high precision parts, such as drive shafts, threads, gears and so on. While milling is suitable for processing a variety of shaped structure of the parts, including flat, curved, inclined and spiral surface, etc., suitable for processing templates, moulds, bearing housing, gears, cams, dials, etc..
