Description

This book updates our knowledge on the metal cutting processes in relation to theory and industrial practice. In particular, many topics reflect recent developments, e.g. modern tool materials, computational machining, computer simulation of various process phenomena, chip control, monitoring of the cutting state, progressive and hybrid machining operations, and generation and modelling of surface integrity.
This book addresses the present state and future development of machining technologies. It provides a comprehensive description of metal cutting theory, experimental and modelling techniques along with basic machining processes and their effective use in a wide range of manufacturing applications. Topics covered include fundamental physical phenomena and methods for their evaluation, available technology of machining processes for specific classes of materials and surface integrity. The book also provides strategies for optimalization techniques and assessment of machinability. Moreover, it describes topics not currently covered in other sources, such as high performance and multitasking (complete) machining with a high potential for increasing productivity, and virtual and e-machining.
The research covered here has contributed to a more generalized vision of machining technology, including not only traditional manufacturing tasks but also new potential (emerging) applications such as micro- and nanotechnology.

About the Author

Wit Grzesik

Wit Grzesik, MSc, PhD, DSc Professor of Mechanical Engineering, obtained an M.Sc. in mechanical engineering from the Technical University of Wroclaw, Poland, in 1973, a Ph.D. in manufacturing engineering from this university in 1981, and a D.Sc. (habilitation) in mechanical engineering from Warsaw University of Technology in 1988. From 1973 to 1975 he worked in industry as a design engineer. In 1975 he joined the Technical University of Opole, Poland. He has been a faculty member in the Department of Manufacturing Engineering as Assistant Professor from 1982 to 1988, Associate Professor from 1988 to 1991 and Professor to 1999. At present he is a Full Professor and Chairman of the Department of Manufacturing Engineering and Production Automation at the Technical University of Opole.
He has published more than 140 papers in journals and conference proceedings, two research monographs on metal cutting mechanics and machinability of austenitic stainless steels, and three books on machining of metallic materials, advanced coatings for engineering applications and programming of CNC machine tools. His research interests include the theory and modeling of metal removal processes, monitoring of manufacturing processes, surface integrity, quality engineering and CAD/CAM and modern manufacturing systems.
Currently, he is a Member of two Sections of the Polish Academy of Science, and a Member of ESAFORM and a Senior Member of the NAMRI/SME (U.S.)
