An in-progress machining operation, where a shiny 2.25-inch stainless steel bushing is being hard turned by a cutting tool with a red-hot point of contact. Coolant droplets and metal shavings are visible against the dark background of the CNC machine interior.

Captured in the midst of action, the hard turning process shapes a 2.25″ stainless steel bushing to perfection.

Introduction

Grinding and hard turning stand out as critical techniques, each boasting its own set of strengths in precision and efficiency. However, we propose a shift in perspective, as hard turning can challenge the reliance on grinding. This blog post aims to explore the scenarios where hard turning not only competes with but potentially surpasses grinding in both effectiveness and practicality. Read More
