Description

Metal Cutting is a guide that discusses the process of metal cutting and its different techniques. The book first gives a short history and introduction to metal cutting, and then discusses the operations and terminologies used in metal cutting; the essential features of metal cutting; and the forces involved. The use of heat, the cutting tool materials, the machinability of different metals and alloys, and the use of coolants and lubricants in metal-cutting machines are also explained. The text is recommended for metalworkers and engineers, especially those who are new to the industry, as this book serves as a handy reference for this craft.
