Machining Equipment Maintenance Handbook Ebook
ESBN: G73-110A-7245-89F1
Description:  

Typically, different types of books on machining and machinist books need to be referred to as information required are normally not available in machining manuals supplied by the manufacturers of the machine-tools and equipment. This 244 page ebook is a compilation of all such study material and the data in the form of a handbook for you to refer to during the process of learning to achieving better results while dealing with machine tools and equipment.

Written from an equipment maintenance perspective, this machining handbook is for the machinist who are required to be trained in precision machining and for developing the knowledge of engineers and technologists working on the shop floor. For the success in the international market, one will have to show its machining capability to meet international standards of quality which demands the maintenance of the accuracy and other related parameters of existing machining equipment.

Examples of the diverse information contained in the book are ...

  • Variable speed drives have been described starting from the conventional Ward Leonard system.
  • Hydraulic stepless drive like hyvari drives have also been described as well as most other drive types listed in the table of contents below.
  • Zero backlash gear arrangement and timing belts are the essential features of CNC machines, this book provides what you need to know.
  • The chapter on control system includes not only the lever and pre-selection of speed but also the automatic controls like logic switching, PLC, numerical control and CNC system.

The Machinist Handbook for Precision Machining Equipment Maintenance is a must have for manufacturing companies focused on diversification when utilizing existing machine tools and equipment with minimum additional investment. If your company is machining base or if you have a machinist in your maintenance team, you need this ebook in your company library.

Besides the details illustrated by more than 175 figures, due care has been taken to indicate the maintenance aspects of all such systems, assemblies and major components. Mathematical formulae and equations have been provided along with technical data in more than 30 tables which can be used by the designers and application and maintenance engineers for verification purposes. This has made this book useful not only for students of industrial machines but also for the machinists, technologists and practicing engineers in the field of design, manufacturing and maintenance.
