Precision Surface Finishing and Deburring Technology
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Enhancement of the surface finish and integrity of engineered components is increasingly important, particularly for the working parts used in electronic and optical devices and systems. Significant progress has been made, in recent years, in developing new and advanced surface finishing technologies as well as in achieving a fundamental understanding of surface finishing technologies in order to predict, control and optimise practical surface finishing processes.
The aim of this special volume is to offer the opportunity of bringing together academic researchers and industry workers in order to exchange information on the latest developments in, and applications of, advanced precision surface finishing and deburring technologies; as well as generally promoting personal contact and interdisciplinary research collaborations.
The topics covered include: Modelling and simulation of super-finish surfacing processes and mechanisms; Precision and super-precision grinding and finishing techniques for advanced materials; Advanced techniques/technologies and fundamental studies for enhancing component surface properties and characteristics; Super-finish surface topography, integrity and characterization; Advanced deburring techniques and theories; Advanced abrasives and equipment for surface finishing processes.
The book will therefore constitute a valuable reference source for those researchers working in the field of surface finishing and deburring technologies who wish to further their understanding of the underlying mechanisms, and to create new practical technologies, systems and processes. It should also be particularly valuable to practising engineers, in precision manufacturing, who are responsible for maintaining efficient and effective operations.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: These proceedings of the November 2007 conference include papers describing significant progress in new and advanced technologies as well as better understanding of technologies in order to adequately predict, control and optimize the processes currently in practice. Comprising both academic researchers and industrial practitioners, contributors address such topics as network database systems, manufacture of coated production tooling, effective deburring at intersecting holes by a permanent magnet inductor, white layer and surface roughness in high speed milling of P20 steel, application of the Taguchi method of optimization of finish conditions, surface finishing performances in quick-point grinding, electrochemical buffing, methods of reducing shock between a press head and press disk, processes of polishing rock minerals of natural stone, theories and experimental studies on grinding force, online wheel wear evaluation, microscopic characteristics analysis, and prediction of surface quality in bearing convex raceway finishing.
