Knurling is a process where we can provide Diamond or Straight lines Embosing the material for gripping and handing purpose. It is used by using carbide wheel (High Strength) crusing the material in between them thus creating projetion like in the material.

Because the handle and knobs should be provided with knurling for proper tightening we need Knurling operation to be provide on them.

S.K.Das Gupta- Knurling is a machining process carried out on machine component to make the surface rough to have better grip.It can be made in various pattern using various form tools.It is widely used in measuring tools to have precise control in adjustment.For example,Outer surface of a micrometer thimble,lock of vernier caliper,Adjustment of screw head of ordinary caliper etc.

Knurling is the one the manufacturing process, Which is mostly done in Lathe, Whereby Straight or angled or Diamond shape is cut on the object by rolling. The main purpose of Knurling is to improve the Material handling and also to provide better Gripping of the Object.search?q=knurling&hl=en&biw=1366&bih=705

A useful tip about knurling, Although the primary function of knurling is to provide a grip form another use which is not always known about is that, if you have a shaft which should be a tight fit in to a bore but is not and is a little bit loose you can knurl the end of the shaft which is to be inserted in to the hole or bore, press the shaft in and it will be tight, this is because knurling raises the area.

 Knurling is a manufacturing process that is typically done with a lathe, where a pattern of straight, angled or crossed lines are cut or rolled into the material.Knurling is done to improve the grip,in the bar stock for better handling purpose

Knurling is a process where the surface of part of a machined job/machined job is made rough using a knurling tool.This rough surface of the machined component makes the of the person holding it to have better grip while working with it.Sometimes it is just for aesthetics.Sometimes it is also used to have better bonding with the other material that will be coated over the knurled machined component.
