Principles of Modern Grinding Technology
Principles of Modern Grinding Technology, Second Edition, provides insights into modern grinding technology based on the author's 40 years of research and experience in the field. It provides a concise treatment of the principles involved and shows how grinding precision and quality of results can be improved and costs reduced. Every aspect of the grinding process--techniques, machines and machine design, process control, and productivity optimization aspects--come under the searchlight.
The new edition is an extensive revision and expansion of the first edition covering all the latest developments, including center-less grinding and ultra-precision grinding. Analyses of factors that influence grinding behavior are provided and applications are presented assisted by numerical examples for illustration. The new edition of this well-proven reference is an indispensible source for technicians, engineers, researchers, teachers, and students who are involved with grinding processes.
- Well-proven source revised and expanded by undisputed authority in the field of grinding processes
- Coverage of the latest developments, such as ultra-precision grinding machine developments and trends in high-speed grinding
