Form Turning

Form turning is a machining operation that involves using a specially shaped cutting tool to create complex contours, shapes, or profiles on the surface of a workpiece. Unlike traditional turning, where a cylindrical shape is generated, form turning focuses on replicating a specific pre-defined shape onto the workpiece. This process is particularly useful when producing components with intricate features, such as threads, grooves, chamfers, and other non-cylindrical geometries.
