Knurling is not just an application, it’s an art. Take a look at how these machinists get their knurls done on a lathe.

Knurling is a manufacturing process and technique used to create concave and bumps (aka knurls) on the surface of the workpiece. The knurls are rolled into the material with special tools and typically look like patterns of straight, angled, or crossed lines. These crossed knurled patterns including diamond and square, with different angles. The knurling operation is usually performed on the lathe machine, including CNC turning lathes.
