CNC Machining Technology Volume II Cutting, Fluids and Workholding Technologies


File Size: 8.64 mb

Description
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 IPS and Springer Verlag in 1989. The individual volumes look at interrelated aspects of using turning and machining centres:

Volume II discusses the crucial point of ancillary activities associated with these machine tools, such as the cutting tool technology decisions that must be made in order to ensure that each machine is fully tooled-up and optimised efficiently. A brief review is also given on cutting tool materials development and tooling geometry considerations. Modular quick-change tooling is reviewed together with both tool and workpiece monitoring systems. A discussion follows on tool management, which becomes a major activity when a considerable tooling inventory
exists within a manufacturing facility. Cutting fluids are an important comple~ment to cutting tools, as they not only extend tool life but additionally enhance the workpiece machined surfaces; therefore it is important to choose the correct cutting fluid and handle it in the approriate manner to obtain maximum benefit from its usage. Workholding technology is an expensive burden that requires careful consideration to achieve an economic optimisation, particularly in a larger scale automated facility such as in an F.M.S. environment and a range of workholding strategies and techniques are reviewed.
