Description

This book is an attempt to cover many of the manufacturing aspects involved in creating and maintaining a world-class machine shop. While the primary focus of this book is on machining or manufacturing enterprise. The look and feel of a world-class shop is described with many examples. Selection, education and training of manufacturing people are discussed. Features of shop equipment including machines and fixturing are covered. The latest information available on efficient machining of titanium is described, and machining of difficult features is covered along with recommended courses of action to minimize warpage and part distortion. Benching and sanding of parts is discussed because these are expensive steps in the fabrication of titanium parts. Cutters and cutter coatings are covered. Efficient and lean practices are described briefly along with some frugal metrics for measuring progress.
