Main description

Technology of Machine Tools 7e provides state-of-the-art training for using machine tools in manufacturing technology, including up-to-date coverage of computer numerical control (CNC). It includes an overview of machine trades and career opportunities followed by theory and application. The text is structured to provide coverage of tools and measurement, machining tools and procedures, drilling and milling machines, computer-aided machining, and metallurgy. There is expanded coverage of computer-related technologies, including computer numerical control (CNC) and computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM).

New to the Seventh Edition of Technology of Machine Tools

In addition to updating the text to reflect changes in the modern business/manufacturing world today – such as direct digital manufacturing,nantotechnology, and IDI – an entirely new section on Lean Manufacturing (Section 15) has been added to focus on this industry‐prominent philosophy.

Units include:

  • Continuous Improvement: Kaizan
  • Pull (Kanban) Systems
  • Total Productive Maintenance
  • Value Stream Mapping
  • Workplace Organization
