Polygonal turning is a millingmilling (mill/milled)Machining process using rotation multi-tooth tool, called milling cutter, in which the cutting and feed motion is generally...
Detail and/or cutting operation which allows non-circular forms to be machined without interrupting the rotation of the raw material and can be executed in the same cycle as conventional turning.
Polygonal turned parts therefore have several points, teeth, or other forms at the ends. Polydec SA often uses this procedure to manufacture plungers for the electronics industry.
This technique requires perfect synchronisation of the movement of the polygonal turning mill and the part being treated. In parallel, the manufacturing engineers must have special knowledge and an accurate representation of movements in space.
Polygonal turning allows rapid production and clean machining, thereby offering more beneficial solutions than conventional milling.
