Metal machining is the most widespread metal-shaping process in the mechanical manufacturing industry. World-wide investment in metal machining tools increases year on year - and the wealth of nations can be judged by it. This text - the most up-to-date in the field - provides in-depth discussion of the theory and application of metal machining at an advanced level. It begins with an overview of the development of metal machining and its role in the current industrial environment and continues with a discussion of the theory and practice of machining. The underlying mechanics are analysed in detail and there are extensive chapters examining applications through a discussion of simulation and process control. qMetal Machining: Theory and Applicationsq is essential reading for senior undergraduates and postgraduates specialising in cutting technology. It is also an invaluable reference tool for professional engineers. Professors Childs, Maekawa, Obikawa and Yamane are four of the leading authorities on metal machining and have worked together for many years. Of interest to all mechanical, manufacturing and materials engineers Theoretical and practical problems addressedImproved manufacturing productivity, over the last 50 years, has occurred in the area of machining through ... There are also more general introductory texts, such as Manufacturing Technology and Engineering by S. Kalpakjian (3rd edn, 1995, anbsp;...
