Micromachining with Nanostructured Cutting Tools (Springerbriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology / Springer)by Mark J. Jackson
Synopses & Reviews
Stress-reducing defects and subsequent microcracks are a central focus during micromachining processes. After establishing the central process of micromachining Micromachining with Nanostructured Cutting Tools explains the underlying theories that describe chip formation and applies elementary cutting theory to machining at the microscale. Divided into three parts, the second half of Micromachining with Nanostructured Cutting Tools develops on this introduction; explaining how frictional interactions between uncoated and micro tools coated with nanostructered coatings can be characterized by using the elementary micromachining theories that were initially developed for machining at the macroscale. Shaw's methods for calculating temperatures at the interaction zone and Merchant's methods for calculating mechanical interactions are well described and justified for machining steel in both the dry and wet states.
The purpose of the brief is to explain how nanostructured tools can be used to machine materials at the microscale.
About the Author
Doctor Mark James Jackson is a Research Associate at Saint-Gobain Abrasives' Group Research and Development Laboratory in Northborough Research and Development Center, Massachusetts and Research Leader of Grinding Technology at the Higgins Grinding Technology Center in Worcester, Massachusetts. After gaining his Ordinary National Diploma in Engineering with distinctions and I.C.I. prize for achievement, he read for a degree in mechanical and manufacturing engineering at Liverpool Polytechnic and spent periods in industry working for I.C.I. Pharmaceuticals, Unilever Industries, Anglo Blackwells and Unicorn International. After graduating with a Master of Engineering (M. Eng.) degree with Distinction, he subsequently read for a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph. D.) degree at Liverpool in the field of materials engineering focusing primarily on microstructure-property relationships in vitreous-bonded abrasive materials.
