CNC Machining Technology: Volume-I Design, Development and elM Strategies

File Size: 6.70 mb

Each volume in this series of three attempts to explain the design of turning and machining centres and how they are operated through part programming languages. Furthermore, a discussion about how such stand-alone machine tools can be networked into flexible manufacturing systems is given along with the problems relating to such interfacing. These volumes were written as a companion book to the successful Advanced Machining - The Handbook of Cutting Technology published jointly by IFS and Springer Verlag in 1989. The individual volumes look at interrelated aspects of using turning and machining centres:
Volume I considers the design, construction and building of turning and machining centres, then goes on to consider how these individual machine tools can be networked together providing the desired communication protocols for flexible manufacturing systems, leading to a complete Computerised Integrated Manufacturing system. This latter philosophy is discussed in terms of a case study on the most automated factory in Europe, ironically manufacturing turning and machining centres. Finally,
mention is made of the efforts given to ensure significant advances in both ultra high-speed machining design and submicron operation, which is sure to have a major impact on general turning and machining centres in the future.
