Milling is a process performed with a machine in which the
cutters rotate to remove the material from the work piece
present in the direction of the angle with the tool axis. A lathe
is a machine tool that rotates a work piece about an axis of
rotation to perform various operations. By adding an
attachment to a lathe machine, common milling operation
such as plain milling, end milling and slotting can be
performed. Having both milling and lathe machine can be
highly cost in terms of machine cost and maintenance cost of
the machines. It also took a large area to place the machine.
The aim of the project is to improve the design of a machine
that capable to perform the process of milling for the purpose
of small and medium industries. The objectives of this project
are to design an attachment on lathe machine to perform
milling operation, to fabricate the milling attachment on lathe
machine and to study the performance of the milling
attachment on the lathe machine. Data collection is
performed through software engineering. Personnel can
assess and evaluate the process involve in more detail. It can
be concluded that this milling attachment requires attaching
and detaching easily. The cost of this attachment is less than
to have both milling and lathe machine.
