Task 13. Complete the following training material for graduate engineers using the words in the box. Use each word only once.

Drilling Flame-cutting Milling Sawing Shearing

Manufacturing techniques evaluation: cutting operations

Key factors in determining the most cutting technique are: material characteristics (notably hardness, and thermal and electrical properties), component thickness, component shape and complexity, required edge quality, and production volume. Select cutting options below for a detailed analysis of techniques.

Cutting options

1) _______: abrasive cutting, removing a kerf of material. Includes cutting with toothed blades and abrasive wheels.

2) _______: use of pressure on smooth-edged blades for guillotining and punching.

3) _______: removal of material across the full diameter of a hole, or using hole-saws for cutting circumferential kerfs.

4) _______: removal of surface layers with multiple cutting wheel passes.

5) _______: using oxy fuel (oxygen + combustible gas, often acetylene)


Task 14. Complete the following definitions using the words or word combinations in the box.

abrasive wheel guillotine hole-saw kerf punch toothed blade

1) A ______ make holes by applying pressure to shear the material.

2) A ______ makes straight cuts by applying pressure to shear the material.

3) A ______ is the width of the saw cut.

4) A ______ has sharp edges for cutting or milling.

5) A ______ has a hard, rough surface for cutting or grinding.

6) A ______ cuts a circular piece to remove an intact core of material.
