The Latest Techniques of Ultra-Precise Manufacturingfor Creating Mechanical, Electronic, and Optical Products

Precision Engineering gives expert guidance on the application of manufacturing to micro and nano levels, using state-of-the-art miniaturization technology. The book fully explores these new in-demand techniques, providing clear explanations of precision engineering fundamentals, the theory and design of precision machines, and the mechanics of ultra-precise machining.

Filled with over 200 skills-building illustrations, this vital engineering resource examines topics ranging from atomic bit processes for manufacturing and atomic force…to scanning and electronic and optical microscopy. You will find timely information on the tool materials for precision machining…the mechanics of materials cutting…advances in precision grinding…ultra-precision machine elements…rolling element, hydrodynamic, and hydrostatic bearings…gas lubricated bearings… microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)…and much more. Presenting practical know-how on everything required to create actual products, Precision Engineering features:

  • A full account of tool materials for precision engineering
  • The latest methods of precision grinding
  • Detailed analysis of ultra-precise machine elements
  • In-depth coverage of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)
