    Machining is one of the eight basic manufacturing processes. This textbook covers the fundamentals and engineering analysis of both conventional and advanced/non-traditional material removal processes along with gear cutting/manufacturing and computer numerically controlled (CNC) machining.

    The text provides a holistic understanding of machining processes and machines in manufacturing; it enables critical thinking through mathematical modeling and problem solving, and offers 200 worked examples/calculations and 70 multiple choice questions on machining operations, as well as on CNC machining, with the eBook version offered in color.

    This unique book is equally useful to both engineering degree students and production engineers practicing in the manufacturing industry.
