Written by seasoned experts in the field, this reference explores efficient methods of design, structural analysis, and algorithm formulation to: reduce waste, noise, and breakage in system function; identify faults in system construction; and achieve optimal machine tool performance. The authors investigate issues such as force, noise, vibration, and acoustic emission to predict the durability and strength of major system components. They evaluate noise levels for different types of machine tools, the effect of abrasion, fissure, and chemical diffusion on acoustic emission signals, the role of neural networks in machine tool diagnostics, and the Kurtosis method in virtual instrumentation.
