Short turning parts
Parts that require plunge-cutting processes to change their cross-sections are called short turned parts. Using additional equipment, we can carry out the required machining processes, such as boring cross-holes, slotting, thread cutting, etc., completely on the machine!
For reasons of production, short turned parts can be classified into two categories:
- Short turned parts with a normal machining accuracy and simpler contours, which are only manufactured on cam-controlled automatic lathes.
- Short turned parts with a high machining accuracy and complicated contours, which are only manufactured on modern automatic lathes with CNC control unit.
