Turning, milling, grinding, sawing, drilling – With CNC machines

Turning: Turning is cutting with a single-edged tool, with the continuous removal of a chip with a constant cross-section. During turning, the workpiece performs the cutting movement, the tool the feed movement.

Milling: Milling is a cutting process performed with a regular single or multi-edged cutting tool. The main rotating movement is always carried out by the milling tool, the advancing secondary movement by either the workpiece or the tool.

Grinding: Grinding operation performed with a tool with an irregular edge geometry, in which the tool with an indefinite edge always performs the main rotating movement. Grinding is an abrasive process, its tool is the grinding wheel.
