In the anatomist industry, machine shop equipment usually identifies the machines and tools which are being used on the workshop floor to handle the making and fabrication of varied materials. Machine Shop Equipment includes an enormous variety of small measuring tools and machines which can range between a straightforward abrasive newspaper and spanner, to highly complex computer managed computerized equipment, and computer manipulated robots which are generally found in the motor vehicle industry.
The number of equipment range from:
- Cutting tools
- Machine shop equipment
- Hand tools
- Ability and pneumatic tools
As mentioned previously, there’s a huge variety of different tools and machines. Lathes and milling machines are really common which is often computer manipulated, like a CNC milling machine and a CNC lathe.
Other tools necessary for an effective machine shop includes a big range of measuring devices. Measuring equipment such as micrometers, veneers, and gauges are being used to ensure exact components are being produced on the shop floor and calculating equipment range from:
Various size micrometers
Slips and feeler gauges
Veneers of varied sizes
Cutting tools are mainly useful to cut the material, and they differ in their method of use, depending on the type of machine they were designed for. There is a huge array of cutting tools available and some of these will include:
- Milling cutters, vertical and horizontal types
- Taps ( for producing screw threads on shafts )
- Dies ( produce screw threads in holes )
- Reamers ( Reamers are used on pre-drilled holes and this produces holes which require high precision )
