This richly illustrated and timely guide provides a solid background in the standard practices of machining technology, covering the core subject areas essential for today's computer numerical control (CNC) and conventional machine operators, general machinists or tool and die makers. Each section begins with an introductory overview, followed by easy-to-read instructional units designed around specific projects that accurately reflect the state of the art in industrial machine shop environments. Uses graphic explanations to demonstrate important concepts, common errors, and difficulties encountered by machinists, and integrates over 1,850 illustrations demonstrating use of tools and machines. Now expands development of trigonometry and geometry dimensions and tolerances; adds color inserts throughout highlighting shop tips, safety tips, new technology, and career tips, and; provides more insight into the processes and tools and to encourage readers pursue further research on adjunct topics. For professionals in machine processes, industrial technology, industrial mechanics, and industrial engineering.
