MachiningMachining is a family of techniques for manufacturing mechanical parts. The principle of machining is removing material so as to give the desired blank shape, using a machine tool. By this technique, we obtain parts of high precision.
There are two ways to generate the desired surface: for form work or work envelope. In the case of employment form is the form of the cutting edge of the tool that determines the resulting surface. In the case of the work envelope is the combination of cutting motions and feed that defines the final surface.
Nowadays, machine tool CNC, that is to say, enslaved by a computer system to automate partially or totally the procedure.
