Hard- & Softturning
The turning process is a central step in metalworking. It involves rotating a cylindrical workpiece in a lathe. A cutting tool progressively removes material to achieve the desired shape. Precise dimensions and surface finish are monitored to ensure required specifications. Turning is a versatile process used in a variety of industries, from the manufacture of bolts and shafts to complex precision parts.
The main difference between soft and hard turning is the hardness of the material. Soft turning is used for soft materials such as aluminum, copper or plastics or unhardened metals, while hard turning is used for hard materials such as steel, hardened steel or carbides. Depending on the hardness of the material, the tool selection and turning speed will vary.
Hard turning can produce a very good surface finish, making it an alternative to grinding in some cases. With soft turning, surface finish is often less critical.
