Precision machining is a process of shaping large masses of material into smaller, more intricate parts. There are three principal machining processes; turning, drilling, and milling.
The precision machining process involves a cutting tool that removes material from the workpiece. In order for the cutting tool to do its job, it must be moved in directions specified to make the correct cut. This primary motion is called the ‘cutting speed’. The workpiece can also be moved, known as the secondary motion of ‘feed’. Together, these motions and the sharpness of the cutting tool allow the precision machine to operate.
