Theory and Practice of Technology for Machining Non-Rigid Smooth Shafts
In modern machine-building the problem of creating highly-efficient technological mechanical machining processes, taking into account the energy and resources-saving and ecological requirements is one of the paramount importance. Throughout the whole period of machine-building technology development there were great difficulties owing to the problems of machining parts with low rigidity and high demands on quality. At creating the technological processes of similar parts’ machining, as at creating any technological process, it is necessary to provide realization of the principle of combining technical, economic and organization assignments. But unlike usual technological processes, in this case it is much more difficult to meet all these requirements.
