Long turning parts
If the cross-section of parts is no longer changed using plunge-cutting processes but rather by axial movement of the cutting tools, the parts are called long turned parts.
For reasons of production, long turned parts can be classified into two categories:
- Long turned parts with a normal machining accuracy and simple contours, which are only manufactured on cam-controlled automatic lathes.
- Long turned parts with a high machining accuracy and complicated contours, which are only manufactured on modern automatic lathes with CNC control unit.
