Jul 17, 2017 Swarf is the material that is removed by machining processes such as grinding or milling. Depending on the machining process used and the speed of the machining, swarf may be produced in many shapes and sizes from a variety of materials, including plastic, wood, metal and stone. Swarf can be very dangerous to people in close proximity to it.
PROCESSES AND SWARF TYPES. Many individual processes in machining generate swarf, including boring, grinding, grooving, knurling, reaming, sawing, slotting and tapping. The three primary machining processes are drilling, milling and turning. Drilling is the most common machining process in fact, estimates suggest three-fourths of all metal removed in machining processes is the result of drilling.
