In addition, more than 400 drawings, photographs, and tables amplify the most currently used machinery, tools, parts, and techniques. The Handbook offers machinists current information on modern equipment, processes, and tools, and the latest calculation techniques. It provides the formulas needed to calculate machining times and the procedures required to use high-speed manufacturing tools. Engineers will gain insight into new developments in pnuematics and hydraulics and will benefit from extensive design data and coverage of fastening and joining techniques, plating procedures, and other applications.
