A polygon cutting attachment has been designed, developed and installed in the existing computer numerical control (CNC) turning center using conceptual design. The working of polygon cutting attachment is checked by performing some machining operation. Thus the CNC turning center becomes multifunctional and flexible for performing turning operations as well as milling operations like polygon profile cutting with presently developed attachment. The attachment is compact, detachable, portable unit and is capable of doing many operations that requires special purpose machines. This powered, variable speed precision tool attachment can be mounted in any position on the turret, table, ram of CNC turning center. Thus with two directional feed table, the attachment becomes complete precision machine tool for CNC turning center.
