6 Forces in turning Cutting force: acts downward on the tool tip Thrust force: acts in the longitudinal direction Radial force: acts in the radial direction Roughing and Finishing Cuts Rough cut: high speed cut with little regard for dimensional tolerance Finishing cut: lower feed rate and depth of cut Tool Materials, Feeds, and Cutting Speeds See table 22.4 Cutting Fluids See table 22.5 Turning Parameters

### History :

History The origin of turning dates to around 1300BC when the Egyptians first developed a two-person lathe. One person would turn the wood work piece with a rope while the other used a sharp tool to cut shapes in the wood The Romans improved the Egyptian design with the addition of a turning bow. Early bow lathes were also developed and used in Germany, France and Britain. 7

History 8

### History :

History In the Middle Ages a pedal replaced hand-operated turning, freeing both the craftsman's hands to hold the woodturning tools. The pedal was usually connected to a pole, often a straight-grained sapling. The system today is called the "spring pole" lathe ( Pole-lathe). 9

### History :

History During the industrial revolution, mechanized power was applied to the lathe via steam engines and line shafting, allowing faster and easier work. Between the late 19th and mid 20th centuries, individual electric motors at each lathe replaced line shafting as the power source. Beginning in the 1950s, servomechanisms were applied to the control of lathes and other machine tools via numerical control (NC), 10

### Machine Classification :
