Carefully written to align with the Machining Level I Standard and to support achievement of the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) credentials, PRECISION MACHINING TECHNOLOGY carries the exclusive endorsement of the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) which recommends this book for use in NIMS-accredited Machining Level I Programs. It is the ideal book to introduce readers to the excitement of today's machine tool industry and provides a good understanding of fundamental and intermediate machining skills needed for successful twenty first century careers. With an emphasis on safety with many caution boxes throughout the book to remind readers about necessary precautions, it offers a fresh view of the role of modern machining in today's economic environments and covers such topics as the basics of hand tools, job planning, benchwork, layout operations, drill press, and milling and grinding processes. The book concludes with a section on Computer Numerical Control (CNC), which presents the world of high-tech automated processes and provides many examples of CNC programming for machining and turning centers, as well as use of tooling. The companion Workbook/Shop Manual contains helpful review material to ensure that readers have mastered key concepts and provides guided practice operations and projects on a wide range of machine tools that will enhance their NIMS credentialing success.
