Rough Machining

What Is Rough Machining?

Rough machining is a process used to remove bulk amounts of excess material from a piece of steel in every pass. The goal is to quickly produce a basic shape according to a desired feature.

How It Works

Rough and finish machining go hand-in-hand. Before a piece of processed steel goes through a finish pass, a rough cut is carried out to remove the maximum amount of unwanted material. As opposed to finish machining, higher feed rates and cut depths are used. This means more material is removed at the expense of surface quality.
