Advances in Machine Tool Design and Research 1969 focuses on the processes, methodologies, and techniques in the design of machine tools. The book contains the proceedings of the 10th International M.T.D.R. Conference held at the University of Manchester in September 1969. The selection first discusses examples and problems in the implementation of modern design features on large machine tools and development of numerically controlled conventional turning machines. The book reviews the theory and practice of fluid dampers in machine tools, including eccentricity of cylindrical film dampers, border effect, and vapor and gas pressure. The text also discusses tool life vibrations of grinding wheels as a function of vibration amplitude; thermal deformations of gear-cutting machines; thermal behavior of machine tools; and the effects of thermal deformation on the cylindrical accuracy in grinding process. The book also takes a look at the trends in manufacturing systems concepts and technical criteria to be used when purchasing machine tools. The selection is a dependable reference for readers interested in machine tool design.
