Metal cutting is widely used in producing manufactured products. The technology has advanced considerably along with new materials, computers and sensors. This new edition considers the scientific principles of metal cutting and their practical application to manufacturing problems. It begins with metal cutting mechanics, principles of vibration and experimental modal analysis applied to solving shop floor problems. There is in-depth coverage of chatter vibrations, a problem experienced daily by manufacturing engineers. Programming, design and automation of CNC (computer numerical control) machine tools, NC (numerical control) programming and CAD/CAM technology are discussed. The text also covers the selection of drive actuators, feedback sensors, modelling and control of feed drives, the design of real time trajectory generation and interpolation algorithms and CNC-oriented error analysis in detail. Each chapter includes examples drawn from industry, design projects and homework problems. This is ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and also practising engineers.

'... [this] book has the advantage of involving a quantitative coverage of the topics, something lacking in other similar books. The language is simple and clear, and so are the illustrations ... certainly a good addition to the manufacturing engineering library.' Choice
'... well written, and the sequence of subjects is perfect ... This reviewer recommends [this book] as a textbook for students, undergraduate as well as graduate. It can also serve as an excellent reference book for those engaged in manufacturing, [for example] engineer[s], technicians and other practitioners.' Applied Mechanics Reviews
"..provides detailed, comprehensive coverage of topics that are important to researchers, professionals, and practitioners and that have not received adequate coverage in other publications...A must read for researchers in the area of machine tool design, as well as production engineers..Highly recommended." - S.D. El Wakil, CHOICE September 2012
