Machining remains a hugely important process in modern engineering and manufacturing practice, and students need to be aware of the vast host of methods and technologies available to meet all sorts of precision and surface finish requirements. Fundamentals of Machining Processes: Conventional and Nonconventional Processes is the first textbook to collect all of the major methods into a single reference, from cutting and abrasive processes to erosion, hybrid, and micromachining processes.
A Solid Foundation
The text begins with an introduction to the various machining processes, followed by detailed discussions of cutting tool materials and geometry, mechanics of orthogonal cutting, the various factors affecting the economics of machining, and cutting methods for both flat and cylindrical surfaces. The author then shifts focus to high-speed machining and abrasive processes, including abrasive finishing and advanced processes such as ultrasonic and abrasive jet machining.
A Firm Step Forward
After laying a groundwork in the conventional processes, El-Hofy delves into modern machining topics. He explains electrochemical and thermal erosion techniques, combined machining processes, and the various micromachining techniques based on the previously discusses processes.
Extensive worked examples, illustrations, and homework problems reinforce a practical understanding of the concepts. Reflecting the author's more than 30 years of industrial and teaching experience, Fundamentals of Machining Processes is a resource that students will carry with them well into their careers.
