Cut Knurling

Knurl profiles on DIN 82 workpiece

Knurl profiles on DIN 82 workpiece: Cut Knurling


  • Alternative cutting process
  • Material removal at axial feed drive
  • Machining of thin-walled, soft and hard-to-machine materials is possible
  • Only cylindrical workpieces can be machined in axial direction
  • Machining of small diameters is possible
  • Maximum precision and surface quality, therefore suitable primarily for visible knurling
  • A plunge cut is necessary for applying the tool in the middle area of the workpiece
  • Knurling up to a shoulder is not possible


  • Requires precise tool adjustment and fine adjustment
  • Requires precise preparation of the workpiece


  • Minimal change in the outer diameter
  • Minimal surface compaction
  • Lower strain on machine than in form knurling
  • Minimum pressure on the workpiece and machine
