The updated third edition of this text includes new material on the rapidly growing fields of CNC, CIM, CAD, and robotics. The previous editions of this text have helped many students become machinists, through apprenticeship training, vocational schools, and college programs. This new edition presents the state-of-the-art in industrial settings in an easy-to-read format. It is extensively illustrated with photographs of actual machining operations, and graphic illustrations are used to highlight important concepts and common errors and difficulties encountered by the machinist. Many units are designed around specific projects that provide much of the performance experience for the student - and the structure of the text allows an instructor to insert projects more applicable to a specific program. Self-tests appear at the end of most units, and an appendix contains the answers.
