The goal of this book is to familiarize professionals, researchers, and students with the basics of the Diamond Turn Machining Technology and the various issues involved. The book provides a comprehensive knowledge about various aspects of the technology including the background, components of the machine, mechanism of material removal, application areas, relevant metrology, and advances taking place in this domain. Solved and unsolved examples are provided in each of the areas which will help the readers to practice and get familiarized with that particular area of the Diamond Turn Machining process.
"…this promises to be a wonderful treatment of the subject for both practicing engineers as well as those pursuing specialization in DTM."

"I am impressed by the contents of the book in general and the chapters like Diamond Turn Machines, and Application of DTM Products in particular. In general, academicians will discuss every aspect of the process but try to ignore machine building technology which involves design as well as manufacturing. Secondly, the process does not get right place on the shop floor unless specific applications of the process are explored. This book brings out both these features to the readers."
