Textbook of Production Engineering

This thoroughly revised book, now in its second edition, gives a complete coverage of the fundamental concepts and applications of Production Engineering. Divided into six parts, the text covers the various theoretical concepts, design and process of metal cutting, the design and mechanism of various machine tools and various aspects of precision measurement and manufacturing. The concepts and processes of metal working and the design of press tools, various modern methods of manufacturing, such as ultrasonic machining (USM), electrochemical deburring (ECD) and hot machining are also covered. A variety of worked-out examples and end-of-chapter review questions are provided to strengthen the grasp as well as to test the comprehension of the underlying concepts and principles. The text is extensively illustrated to aid the students in gaining a thorough understanding of various production processes and the principles behind them. The text is intended to serve the needs of the undergraduate students of Mechanical Engineering and Production Engineering. The postgraduate students of Mechanical Engineering and Production Engineering will also find the book highly useful.Key Features: Incorporates a new chapter on Grinding and other Abrasive metal removal processes. Includes new sections on Electric motors for machine tools in Chapter 18, Production of screw threads in Chapter 22, Linear precision measurement, surface finish and machine tools in Chapter 23. Presents several new illustrative examples throughout the book.Table of Contents:Part I: Metal CuttingIntroduction to Materials and ProcessesMetal Cutting Tools: Basic ConceptsCutting Tool MaterialsDesign of Metal Cutting ToolsTheory of Metal CuttingTheory of Multipoint MachiningHeat in Metal Cutting and Temperature MeasurementDynamometryTool Failures and Tool LifeMachinabilityEconomics of Metal MachiningMetal Cutting and Metal Working FluidsPart II: Machine ToolsIntroduction to Machine ToolsDesign of Machine Tool BedsDesign of Machine Tool Guides and WaysDesign of Feed Power Mechanism and ScrewDesign of Machine Tool Gear BoxStepless Regulation of SpeedsMachine Tool VibrationsMechanization and AutomationNumerical and Computer Numerical Controlled MachinesGear Cutting and BroachingPart III: Precision Measurement and ManufacturingMetrology and Precision MeasurementJigs and FixturesPart IV: Metal WorkingMetal Working ProcessesTheory of Metal Working ProcessesPress Tools and Their DesignPart V: Modern Methods of ManufacturingUnconventional Methods of MachiningPart VI: Grinding ProcessGrinding and Other Abrasive Metal Removal ProcessesReferencesIndex
