Advances in Abrasive Technology XIV
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Abrasive technology is the most important aspect of precision technology. A total of 117 full-color papers are to be found in this book. Developments in precision turning, milling, and drilling, machining of difficult-to-cut materials, such as chromium-nickel alloys, titanium alloys, carbides and ceramics, and glass are addressed. In addition, special processes of precision technology, including polishing, lapping, jet-machining, magnetic finishing, micro and nano-machining, machine-tool design, silicon wafers and spinning, are presented. This work is a handy guide to the state of the art.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Peer-reviewed papers from a September 2011 symposium report on developments and innovations in abrasive technology and related technologies, detailing recent work in precision turning, milling, drilling, and machining of difficult-to-cut materials such as titanium alloys, carbides, and ceramics. Papers are in sections on grinding technology, milling and drilling, polishing and lapping, micro and nano machining, abrasive jet machining and formation, machining of silicon wafer and glass, ECO-manufacturing, molding and sintering, and peening processes. Some specific topics covered include the effect of shot peening on residual stress of high-toughness spring steel, non-grooving on copper by nano-milling and nano-cutting, micro-end milling of titanium alloy, and composite tools designed for electrolytic magnetic abrasive finishing with FEM. Other topics are a desktop device for lapping milled micro-thin-walled structures, tool wear and cutting temperature in machining of composites, ultrasonic coring of glass disks using a double core tool, tribological aspects of chemical mechanical polishing of diamond surfaces, and evaluation of vibration-finished surfaces using image processing.
