Editorial Reviews
From Book News, Inc.


Focuses on the practical implementation of high performance machining principles in a manufacturing environment. Reviews current practices, then examines areas such as machine construction and geometry, motion control and drive trains, spindle technology, thermal growth and control, part processing, and real-time performance monitoring<-->in the context of 3-axis vertical machining centers, with some discussion of 4- and 5-axis machining. The information presented applies to a wide array of processes beyond milling, including turning and grinding, and is useful for operations ranging from production lines to garage-based machine shops.

The author, Miles Arnone, January 17, 1999

A guide for machine shops faced with tough competition
I wrote the book based on my experiences at Boston Digital Corporation, a manufacturer of high performance machine tools. We see that machined components are becoming ever more complex with tighter tolerancing. This has created a significant challenge for the machining industry. At the same time, customers expect the lead time for machined parts to drop.

I also wrote the book in response to the widespread problem of "accuracy inflation". A lot of shops claim they can hold tolerances of 0.0002" or so on contoured surfaces at high speeds. Often these claims are extremely exaggerated.

By writing the book I hoped to provide a road map that would allow shops to produce better parts more quickly, while making it clear how difficult it really is to make parts to tolerances below 0.0005".
