A cylindrical workpart 200 mm in diameter and 700 mm long is to be turned in an engine lathe.
Cutting speed = 2.30 m/s, feed = 0.32 mm/rev, and depth of cut = 1.80 mm. Determine (a) cutting
time, and (b) metal removal rate.

A facing operation is performed on an engine lathe. The diameter of the cylindrical part is 6 in and
the length is 15 in. The spindle rotates at a speed of 180 rev/min. Depth of cut = 0.110 in, and feed
= 0.008 in/rev. Assume the cutting tool moves from the outer diameter of the workpiece to exactly
the center at a constant velocity. Determine (a) the velocity of the tool as it moves from the outer
diameter towards the center and (b) the cutting time.
Solution:
(a)

A cylindrical work bar with 4.5 in diameter and 52 in length is chucked in an engine lathe and
supported at the opposite end using a live center. A 46.0 in portion of the length is to be turned to a
diameter of 4.25 in one pass at a speed of 450 ft/min. The metal removal rate should be 6.75
in
3
/min. Determine (a) the required depth of cut, (b) the required feed, and (c) the cutting time.
