Serves as a complete reference that covers systems, machines, processes, and theory
Emphasizes physical insight and a model-based approach to problem solving
Provides extensive coverage of tool grades and coatings for all engineering materials
Includes a full-scale treatment of minimum quality lubrication machining
Textbooks in the field of mechanical engineering are generally good at explaining theories and principles and they elaborate processes in fair detail. But it is equally important for an engineer to know the basic design working principle and operation of various machines or equipment which are used for conversion of raw materials into desired products.
