Completely revised and updated, this second edition of Fundamentals of Machining Processes: Conventional and Nonconventional Processes covers the fundamentals machining by cutting, abrasion, erosion, and combined processes. The new edition has been expanded with two additional chapters covering the concept of machinability and the roadmap for selecting machining processes that meet required design specification. See What’s New in the Second Edition: Explanation of the definition of the relative machinability index and how the machinability is judged Important factors affecting the machinability ratings Machinability ratings of common engineering materials by conventional and nonconventiona...
This text contains 12 chapters. Each chapter describes: process; operational summary; application; and principles of operation. Each chapter contains its separate list of questions, bibliography and list of figures. It may be of value for students at engineering colleges.
Continuous improvements in machining practices have created opportunities for businesses to develop more streamlined processes. This not only leads to higher success in day-to-day production, but also increases the overall success of businesses. Non-Conventional Machining in Modern Manufacturing Systems provides emerging research exploring the theoretical and practical aspects of technological advancements in industrial environments and applications in manufacturing. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as optimization techniques, electrical discharge machining, and hot machining, this book is ideally designed for business managers, engineers, business professionals, researchers, and academicians seeking current research on non-conventional and technologically advanced machining processes.
It aims to describe difference between conventional and non traditional machining (NTM) process, types of NTM processes, all types of processes separately under each heading, their application and uses.
New edition (previous, 1975) of a textbook for a college-level course in the principles of machine tools and metal machining. Math demands are limited to introductory calculus and that encountered in basic statics and dynamics. Topics include: operations, mechanics of cutting, temperature, tool life
Written by authorities in the subject, this book provides a complete treatment of metal forming and machining by using the computational techniques FEM, fuzzy set theory and neural networks as modelling tools. The algorithms and solved examples included make this book of value to postgraduates, senior undergraduates, and lecturers and researchers in these fields. Research and development engineers and consultants for the manufacturing industry will also find it of use.
The book thoroughly illustrates the causes of various phenomena and their effects on machining practice. It includes description of machining processes outlining the merits and de-merits of various modeling approaches. Spread in 22 chapters, the book is broadly divided in four sections: 1. Machining Processes 2. Cutting Tools 3. Machine Tools 4. Automation Data on cutting parameters for machining operations and main characteristics of machine tools have been separately provided in Annexures. In addition to exhaustive theory, a number of numerical examples have been solved and arranged in various chapters. Question bank has been given at the end of every chapter. The book is a must for anyone involved in metal cutting, machining, machine tool technology, machining applications, and manufacturing processes
