Description

Offering complete coverage of the technologies, machine tools, and operations of a wide range of machining processes, Machining Technology presents the essential principles of machining and then examines traditional and nontraditional machining methods. Available for the first time in one easy-to-use resource, the book elucidates the fundamentals, basic elements, and operations of the general purpose machine tools used for the production of cylindrical and flat surfaces by turning, drilling and reaming, shaping and planing, milling, boring, broaching, and abrasive processes.

Reviews

"This work is useful for students who want to learn about machine tools and machining and who want to become machinists or instrument makers. Recommended."

A.M. Strauss, Vanderbilt University, CHOICE, Oct. 2008, Vol. 46, No.2

"…describes the fundamentals of processes, their capabilities, typical applications, advantages and limitations. … a useful reference for students at technical colleges, mechanical, manufacturing, industrial and materials engineers, professionals in related industries with manufacturing technology."

—Int. J. Machining and Machinability of Materials, Vol. 13, No. 4, 2013
