© 2013 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. All rights reserved. This chapter focuses on micro turning operations for micro cutting, and classifies micro turning operations into two categories - diamond turning for surface structuring through commercially available ultra-precision machine tools as the platform and micro turning for producing 3D high aspect ratio components typically through micro turning machines. Although there is abundant literature relating to conventional diamond turning, only the work concerning machining micro structures or micro features are reviewed in the chapter. Both micro tooling and machine tools are discussed with the support of perspective applications. Some issues and challenges in micro turning, in addition to the size effect issues are continuously emerging and pushing forward along with more and more applications in the industry.
