Synopses & Reviews
Machining and machine tools is an important subject with application in several industries. Parts manufactured by other processes often require further operations before the product is ready for application. "Traditional machining" is used to describe removal of material from a piece of work. It includes chip formation operations such as turning, milling, drilling and grinding. Recently, the industrial utilization of non-traditional machining processes including electrical discharge machining (EDM), laser-beam machining (LBM), abrasive water jet machining (AWJM) and ultrasonic machining (USM) has increased. This book, the third in the series "Woodhead Publishing Reviews: Mechanical Engineering", covers the performance characteristics of machine tools and the significant development of existing and new processes, and machines.
Eight chapters cover salient aspects of machining and machine tools:Analysis of acoustic emission signal evolutions for monitoring diamond-coated tool delamination wear in machining, High-performance machining of austenitic stainless steels, Forces monitoring in shape grinding of complex parts, Optimization of minimum quantity lubrication in grinding with CBN wheels, Electrical discharge machining, Conventional and unconventional hole making in metal matrix composites, A laboratory machine for micro electrochemical machining, and Cam-driven electromagnetic mechanical testing machine.
