8. Cylindrical turning and facing of hollow cylindrical parts

Hollow cylindrical parts can be machined with the part held in a chuck or between centres. The use of counter-supports (steady rest) depends on the length of the part, the diameter to be machined and the weight of the part. It is always to be considered an additional support. The cutting is done on the external or internal surface and end face of the part.

- When chucking thin-walled parts, the chucking pressure must be selected so as to avoid any deformation of the part. For this purpose, clamping bushes as per Fig. 25 may be used.

- If a tailstock is used as counter-support with a centre smaller than the bore of the part, thrust pads as per Fig. 26 are to be used.

- Hollow parts warm up more quickly than solid material during machining. This fact is to be considered when choosing the cutting values and in dimensional inspection.

What kinds of counter-supports do you know?
