Nov 13, 2015

1.Basic difference between turning and milling is that , in turning the tool is fixed and the job rotates whereas in milling the job is fixed and the tool moves.

                                                                              NO.1 Turning




                                                                              NO.2 Turning



                                                                            NO.3 Milling


2.The size of the job can't be too big in turning because of the centrifugal force,whereas in milling.

3.The turning machine usually process regular shape like the solid of revolution,whereas in milling.The milling machining can process very complicated shape.

4.Turning is more efficient than milling.So it will reduce the cost.
