Turning sheet metal Startseite 9 Sheet metal working 9 Turning Production of turned parts Turning is a manufacturing method which, like milling and drilling, is classified as machining. Here, the workpiece is clamped in the lathe. There it rotates around its own axis while the tool removes the material from the outside until the desired shape is achieved. Turning is mainly used to machine round parts. Often, a combination with other machining methods is used in addition to turning. Here, turning is often at the beginning of the process chain to form the outline of the part. Turning often involves shaping compact parts. For individual sheets, this process is very time-consuming. For larger quantities, however, several sheet metal parts can be clamped in the machine at the same time, so that efficiency can also be guaranteed here. Areas of application of machining production methods Machining methods such as turning are always used in the production of precision shims when laser and punching technology reach their limits. This is particularly the case with laminated sheet. Laser cutting is not possible for parts made of flat-bonded laminates, since this thermal process melts the adhesive at the cut edges. Punching is possible with laminated sheet, but it is rather unsuited. The individual foil layers are pressed together by the lifting force, which makes them difficult to remove. Machining methods of sheet metal processing such as drilling, turning, or milling are therefore the preferred production methods for high-quality shim washers made of laminate.
