About the book
Drilling is the most commonly used metal cutting operation and is widely performed on conventional and CNC lathes, milling machines, machining centres, and special purpose machines, in addition to drill presses and dedicated drilling machines. The success of a drilling operation depends on many factors and much progress has been made on this operation. These include advances in cutting tool technology, machine tool technology, modern accessories, and optimization of cutting parameters. Majority of drilling operations are performed using a single drill bit at a time; however, multi spindle machines and attachments provide the possibility of performing multiple drilling operations simultaneously and are improving productivity.
This book will provide the reader with an overview of the latest achievements in drilling technology resulting in improved productivity, reliability, quality, operation economy, and safety. It will cover new and creative methods of performing this operation, new applications, process optimisation and control methods, advances in cutting tools, machine tools and accessories that would enhance the efficiency and productivity of the operation and lower the costs and time. This book will be very useful recourse to engineers, researchers, students, and manufacturing firms
