Although recognized as one of the oldest and most efficient methods for producing long and slender parts and others on screw machines, skiving is still often avoided because many layout and setup personnel and operators lack sufficient knowledge to successfully apply the process.

The article provides clear illustrations and details for optimal strategies in skiving.

Although recognized as one of the oldest and most efficient methods for producing long and slender parts, those with close diameter tolerances and finishes, and those requiring truly spherical radii, skiving is still often avoided because many layout and setup personnel and operators lack sufficient knowledge to successfully apply the process.

Several years ago, Somma Tool Co. provided a closer look at the process in the article, “The Forgotten Art of Skiving.” Providing a solid definition of skiving, details of its advantages, and clear illustrations of required cutting angles, this article continues to get a lot of traffic on the Production Machining website. It’s worth a read if you think skiving might be right for your operations.
