Cutting is one of the most used production processes. It is used in production of most of product we used in our daily life.


Machining is the process of removing chips from material with the help of hard and sharp edged tools; and thus giving it the desired or required shape. The parts made with machining are within close tolerances and normally good surface finish. But the power required to made a part with machining is maximum in the all forms of conventional manufacturing processes. machining is usually used for finishing process after casting. The machines used for machining are called MACHINE TOOLS. Machine tools are generally powered by electrical motors. Use of gears is also popular for changing speed.


Machine tools are of different types on the base of type of surface required to be produce and type of motion given to machine bed and tool. below are some very popular machine tools.

  • Lathe Machine
  • Milling Machine
  • Drilling Machine
  • Shaper
  • Planer
  • Grinder

Computer numerical controlled machines (C.N.C) are very famous in modern industry.
