2. There are many methods to process mechanical parts in modern mechanical manufacturing: in addition to cutting, there are casting, forging, welding, stamping, extrusion, etc. However, for parts with high precision requirements and fine surface roughness requirements, it is generally necessary to carry out the final processing by cutting on the machine tool.
3. Lathe is a machine tool that mainly uses turning tools to turn rotating workpieces. The lathe can also be used for corresponding processing, such as drill, reamer, tap, die and knurling tools.
