CNC Lathe Machine

What Is A CNC Lathe Machine?

There are many industrial uses for a common lathe, and CNC lathe machines are now rapidly replacing some of the older production lathes because they are much more efficient, and can be set up and operated much more easily. You can use lathes, in general, for thermal spraying, metal spinning, woodturning, metalworking, glass working, and…

Rotary Broach

How Does A Rotary Broach Work?

There has recently been an initiative from within the medical industry to couple bone screw applications with square and spline drives, as well as hexagonal shapes. To do this, it’s necessary to use materials such as titanium, cobalt, and several high-temperature alloys, and that makes it fairly difficult to impart the desired shape to the…

Lathe Machine

How Does A Lathe Machine Work?

A lathe is a machine that manufacturers use for shaping wood or metal, and it works by rotating the piece around a cutting tool that is stationary. The main purpose is to remove unwanted parts of the workpiece, which ultimately creates a workpiece shaped exactly as you want it. There are many different types of lathes…

Spline Broaching

What Is Spline Broaching?

Whenever you align keyways around the circumference of a hole, you get a spline. These splines can have different numbers of teeth, and they can have a number of different shapes, for instance helical, involute, or straight-sided. Splines primarily connect driven components in any kind of machines and vehicles, and also in a number of…
