Nanofinishing Science and Technology: Basic and Advanced Finishing and Polishing Processes

Vijay Kumar Jain, Indian Institute of Technology, Department of Mechanical Engr.

Finishing is the final operation after a part is sized and shaped. Currently in high tech industries, there is a demand for nano level surface finishing of components. This process is done to improve the surface finish, to remove the recast layer, or to remove surface and sub-surface defects. The result is low friction, longer product life, and low power requirements. Equally important is the aesthetic aspect of the product. This topic is growing very fast due to technology as well as from a science point of view. Books on this subject are very limited, particularly ones that deal with both the science as well as the technology aspects.

Grinding offers capabilities that range from high-rate material removal to high-precision superfinishing and has become one of the most widely used industrial machining and surface finishing operations. Reflecting modern developments in the science and practice of grinding, this handbook presents a broad range of abrasive machining technologies with a focus on the fundamental concepts and practical applications. This edition includes new materials, new types of abrasives, new machine-tools, new software, and new and basic research carried out by the authors.

Fundamentals of Machining Processes: Conventional and Nonconventional Processes, Second Edition
Add to Cart
Hassan Abdel-Gawad El-Hofy

This textbook provides fundamental theoretical analysis of machining by cutting, abrasion, erosion, and combined processes. The author presents the principles and theories of material removal and applications for conventional and nonconventional machining processes, discusses the role of machining variables in the technological characteristics of each process, and provides treatment of current technologies in high speed machining and micromachining. The book includes machining data, solved examples, and review questions. Completely revised, it includes new figures and problems along with two new chapters: Machinability of Engineering Materials and Selection of a Machining Process.
