This new edition of a classic covers manual and computer-based machine tool operations. The authors have retained the helpful step-by-step approach using photo sequences to illustrate technical procedures. Key features of this new edition: All new illustrations offer clear and up-to-date visual enhancement to the text. Coverage of computer numerical control (CNC) has been revised and enhanced with more material specific to industry standard conventional code programming patterned after common industry formats. Each section begins with an introductory overview followed by instructional units reflecting state-of-the-art machine shop practice. Graphic illustrations highlight important concepts and warn of common errors and difficulties. Many units are designed around specific projects that provide an immediate application experience for the reader. Special features--Shop Tips, Safety Tips, New Technology, Career Information--add reader interest and understanding. Background trigonometry concepts--deemed essential for complete understanding--now appear at appropriate places throughout the book. Processes no longer commonly used in the field have been removed.Kibbe, Richard R. is the author of 'Machine Tool Practices', published 2001 under ISBN 9780130334473 and ISBN 0130334472.
