Currently grinding is commonly used as the finishing operation to manufacture seal mating surfaces and bearing surfaces, especially in the automotive industry. It would lead to more resource-efficient production if the cost- and energy-intensive grinding process could be replaced by machining with geometrically defined cutting edges, such as hard turning [1, 2]. However, turning operations usually cause a twist structure on the surface, which can convey lubricants like a pump. Several methods exist to overcome this problem, for example, tangential turning, rotation turning and turn broaching, etc. Due to the high costs of tools and special machines required by these methods, the industrial application is still limited. This paper describes a more efficient approach by applying a modified feed kinematic. When using this approach, hard turning produces twist-free surfaces. The results of the latest twist test methods have confirmed that the surfaces are free of twist, hence free of conveying effect of lubricant and that they are suitable for application in manufacturing of seal mating surfaces and bearing surfaces. Furthermore, this method requires only minimal investment in any turning machine.
