Turbine manufacture. Engineers machine a turbine shaft with a machine tool. The turbine seen here will be used in a power station. Power station turbines use rotors to convert the motion of steam passing along the turbine shaft into radial motion. As the shaft will be spinning rapidly, it is essential to prevent instability in its motion by machining out any irregularities in its shape.
