Manufacturing Processes 1: Cutting

Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, May 26, 2011 - Technology & Engineering - 506 pages

The book series on manufacturing processes for engineers is a reference work for scientific and industrial experts. This volume on Turning, Milling and Drilling starts from the basic principles of machining with geometrically defined cutting edges based on a common active principle. In addition, appropriate tool designs as well as the reasonable use of cutting material are presented. A detailed chapter about the machinability of the most important workpiece materials, such as steel and cast iron, light metal alloys and high temperature resistant materials imparts a broad knowledge of the interrelations between workpiece materials, cutting materials and process parameters.

This book is in the RWTHedition Series as are the other four volumes of the reference work.
