Preface to Metal Cutting PDF Book

In this new edition, we revised and expanded Chapters 1, 3, and 10 from the previous edition, and updated material and references in the remaining chapters, especially in Chapters 6, 9, 11, and 14.

Chapters 15 and 16 from the second edition, on high-throughput and agile machining and design for machining, respectively, have been replaced with new chapters on minimum quantity lubrication machining and accuracy and error compensation of CNC machining systems.

Finally, we are pleased to announce that the chapter on gear machining deferred from the second edition enters the current lineup as Chapter 17.

We are grateful to Paul Bojanowski, Emenike Chukwuma, David N. Dilley, William Dowling, Trevor Hill, Tim Hull, Jack Knapke, Dr. Heinrich Schwenke, Dr. Herman Stadtfeld, James Stead, Alexander Stoll, Kalvis Terauds, David Wall, Tim Walker, Douglas Watts, and Michael Williams for providing technical input and figures for the current edition.

We are also grateful to Cindy Carelli and her team at CRC Press for their usual expert editing work. Finally, we thank our families for their forbearance with our sporadic but longstanding preoccupation with this work.

When we began writing the first edition of this book in 1992, we could not have anticipated the project’s longevity or that we would still be working on it more than 20 years later.

We thank our readers for their patience, salute them for their fortitude, and wish them success in their metalcutting endeavors.
