This volume describes the fundamentals, basic elements, and operations of general-purpose metal cutting and abrasive machine tools used for the production and grinding of cylindrical and flat surfaces by turning, drilling, and reaming, shaping and planing, and milling processes.
Special purpose machines and operations used for thread cutting, gear cutting, and broaching processes are included along with semi-automatic, automatic, NC and CNC machine tools, operations, tooling, mechanisms, accessories, jigs and fixtures, and machine tool dynamometry are discussed. The treatment throughout the book is aimed at motivating and challenging the reader to explore technologies and economically viable solutions regarding optimum selection of machining operations for a given task.
This volume will be useful to professionals, students, and companies in the areas of mechanical, industrial, manufacturing, materials, and production engineering fields.
