Lathe Turning Time Calculation

In Mechanical engineering, turning is a material removal process. It is used to create rotational parts by cutting away unwanted material. The turning process requires a turning machine or lathe, workpiece, fixture and cutting tool. Given here is an online lathe operations calculator which performs lathe turning time calculation based on the length and revolution of the job.

Result :

min

Example:

Consider the length of the job be 15 and the feed per revolution be 3 and the revolution of the job/min is 2. Calculate lathe turning time.

Solution:

Lathe Operation Turning Time = 15 / (3x2)
= 15/6
= 2.5
