Machine Tools Handbook: Design and Operation

by: Prakash Hiralal Joshi, DME, AMIE (India)


Abstract: Machine Tools Handbook: Design and Operation is a practical guide which an engineer can use while designing a new machine. The book introduces basic machine tools, followed by a discussion on various types of machine tool drives, their mechanisms, transmission and manipulation. It also provides an in-depth coverage of machine tool elements and operation, including working of electrical elements such as contactors, time relays, etc. Besides these Machine Tools Handbook also covers the pertinent aspects of tool engineering. The author shares his rich experience of over 35 years with: • Mechanical/Production engineers • Professionals from small and medium scale enterprises • Consultants • Students and academicians The author brings in this book his original development-Gear Box Design Machine Tools Handbook includes important topics like: • Gear box design • Thumb rules for designing machine elements • Design of hydraulic system • Specifications of hydraulic valves, piping, pumps and tanks • Design of electrical circuits • Elementary NC and CNC programmes
