Bookshelf: Cutting Data for Turning of Steel

Jan. 9, 2009
By Edmund Isakov, Industrial Press Inc., 2009, 316 pages, $49.95

Here is an essential reference to one of the most important processes in manufacturing -- machining. What contributes to its "essential" status, the author says, is that in 1999 more than $100 billion was spent on removing material from a workpiece in the form of chips.

The author targets achieving maximum productivity from machine tools when turning the most commonly used grades of carbon, alloy, stainless and tool steels. More specifically, the author's goal is to provide recommendations for selecting machining parameters in relationship with cutting tool materials and workpiece materials.

Intended readership includes manufacturing engineers and managers, machine shop supervisors, machine tool operators, CNC programmers, and cutting tool engineers and designers. Nearly two decades at Kennametal Inc. contribute to the author's expertise in the technical analysis of cutting tools. He currently serves as an independent consultant/writer.
