Over the next couple weeks, we’re going to go over the seven, basic machine processes that go into making our parts; Turning, Hobbing, Milling, Tapping, Boring, Parting, and Broaching.
Although there are numerous post-production steps that go into finishing a Profile Racing part, this is where it starts.
Up sixth: Milling.
Milling is mostly done on a Mill.
Unlike in a lathe, where the tool is stationary and the part turns, during milling, the tool turns.
100% of our sprockets are done on a Mill.
And overall, 50% of our work is done through Profile’s several Milling stations.
