Metal cutting applications span the entire range from mass production to mass customization to high-precision, fully customized designs. The careful balance between precision and efficiency is maintained only through intimate knowledge of the physical processes, material characteristics, and technological capabilities of the equipment and workpieces involved. The best-selling first edition of Metal Cutting Theory and Practice provided such knowledge, integrating timely research with current industry practice. This brilliant reference enters its second edition with fully updated coverage, new sections, and the inclusion of examples and problems.

Supplying complete, up-to-date information on machine tools, tooling, and workholding technologies, this second edition stresses a physical understanding of machining processes including forces, temperatures, and surface finish. This provides a practical basis for troubleshooting and evaluating vendor claims. In addition to updates in all chapters, the book features three new chapters on cutting fluids, agile and high-throughput machining, and design for machining. The authors also added examples and problems for additional hands-on insight. Rounding out the treatment, an entire chapter is devoted to machining economics and optimization.

Endowing you with practical knowledge and a fundamental understanding of underlying physical concepts, Metal Cutting Theory and Practice, Second Edition is a necessity for designing, evaluating, purchasing, and using machine tools.
