What is Machining?
Machining is a manufacturing process in which a metal component is cleaned up to the specific measurements that companies require them to be. After the forging process the product that is produced is a rough shaped component. For some applications it is important for the forging to be exact measurements and exact shapes and this is where the machining process comes into play. With several different tools and techniques, the component is perfected through the machining process. There are several different tools available to use during this process, including boring, cutting, drilling, grinding milling and turning tools. There are also different types of cutting techniques like laser, plasma and oxy-fuel cutting.
What are Machined Forgings Applications?
There are several industries where machined forgings are required, including, in particular the aerospace industry. In order to manufacture vehicles in which will be utilizing the laws of physics to fly in the air, there is a specific science behind it. The pieces used in such aircrafts need to be manufactured to precise measurements in order for the product to function correctly. Machined forgings are just one of the components used in the aerospace industry.
