Micro-Cutting: Fundamentals and Applicationscomprehensively covers the state of the art research andengineering practice in micro/nano cutting: an area which isbecoming increasingly important, especially in modernmicro-manufacturing, ultraprecision manufacturing and high valuemanufacturing.
This book provides basic theory, design and analysis ofmicro-toolings and machines, modelling methods and techniques, andintegrated approaches for micro-cutting. The fundamentalcharacteristics, modelling, simulation and optimization ofmicro/nano cutting processes are emphasized with particularreference to the predictabilty, producibility, repeatability andproductivity of manufacturing at micro and nano scales.
The fundamentals of micro/nano cutting are applied to a varietyof machining processes including diamond turning, micromilling,micro/nano grinding/polishing, ultraprecision machining, and thedesign and implementation of micro/nano cutting process chains andmicromachining systems.
* Contains contributions from leading global experts
* Covers the fundamental theory of micro-cutting
* Presents applications in a variety of machiningprocesses
* Includes examples of how to implement and applymicro-cutting for precision and micro-manufacturing
Micro-Cutting: Fundamentals and Applications is an idealreference for manufacturing engineers, production supervisors,tooling engineers, planning and application engineers, as well asmachine tool designers. It is also a suitable textbook forpostgraduate students in the areas of micro-manufacturing,micro-engineering and advanced manufacturing methods.
