Machine Shop & Tools

Industrial Press covers a wide range of subjects in Machine Shop and Tools, and this is a core field for our publishing program. Topics include metal stamping, machine tool technology, basic machining, sheet metal forming, and die making.  

  1. Cutting Data for Turning of Steel

    Machining recommendations provided in this book cover turning since it allows removing more material per unit of time and consuming more power at the roughing operations than end milling, boring or drilling. Machining recommendations relate to cutting speeds, feed rates, and depth of cuts. Such recommendations depend on the workpiece material properties and the cutting tool material. Workpiece materials described in this book are the most commonly used grades of carbon, alloy, stainless, tool, and maraging steels. Cutting tool materials are cemented carbides, cermets, and ceramics.
