Written by three experienced educators and practitioners, Machine Tool Technology Basics is sure to be a useful tool for anyone needing to learn about today's machine tool trade. Logically organized in three sections, it begins with basic metal‐removal operations of conventional machines, progresses to CNC machines, and finishes with CAD/CAM. Easy to understand and use, this practical reference keeps operations brief and highlights related information that is not part of the operation. What's more, you will find practical examples on basic operations and discussions on CNC programming and CAD/CAM designing in an easy‐to‐follow point form. Beginning machine trades students, industrial machine tool training, and practitioners who wish to review topics that they have not used for some time will come to rely on this information‐packed guide.
