Metal Cutting Theory and Practice, Third Edition by David A. Stephenson & John S. Agapiou

A Complete Reference Covering the Latest Technology in Metal Cutting Tools, Processes, and Equipment

Metal Cutting Theory and Practice, Third Edition shapes the future of material removal in new and lasting ways. Centered on metallic work materials and traditional chip-forming cutting methods, the book provides a physical understanding of conventional and high-speed machining processes applied to metallic work pieces, and serves as a basis for effective process design and troubleshooting. This latest edition of a well-known reference highlights recent developments, covers the latest research results, and reflects current areas of emphasis in industrial practice. Based on the authors' extensive automotive production experience, it covers several structural changes, and includes an extensive review of computer aided engineering (CAE) methods for process analysis and design. Providing updated material throughout, it offers insight and understanding to engineers looking to design, operate, troubleshoot, and improve high quality, cost effective metal cutting operations.

The book contains extensive up-to-date references to both scientific and trade literature, and provides a description of error mapping and compensation strategies for CNC machines based on recently issued international standards, and includes chapters on cutting fluids and gear machining. The authors also offer updated information on tooling grades and practices for machining compacted graphite iron, nickel alloys, and other hard-to-machine materials, as well as a full description of minimum quantity lubrication systems, tooling, and processing practices. In addition, updated topics include machine tool types and structures, cutting tool materials and coatings, cutting mechanics and temperatures, process simulation and analysis, and tool wear from both chemical and mechanical viewpoints.

Comprised of 17 chapters, this detailed study:

  • Describes the common machining operations used to produce specific shapes or surface characteristics
  • Contains conventional and advanced cutting tool technologies
  • Explains the properties and characteristics of tools which influence tool design or selection
  • Clarifies the physical mechanisms which lead to tool failure and identifies general strategies for reducing failure rates and increasing tool life
  • Includes common machinability criteria, tests, and indices
  • Breaks down the economics of machining operations
  • Offers an overview of the engineering aspects of MQL machining
  • Summarizes gear machining and finishing methods for common gear types, and more

Metal Cutting Theory and Practice, Third Edition emphasizes the physical understanding and analysis for robust process design, troubleshooting, and improvement, and aids manufacturing engineering professionals, and engineering students in manufacturing engineering and machining processes programs.
