Machining with Nanomaterials

Machining with Nanomaterials focuses on the application of thin film nanostructures to the solution of machining problems. The solution to machining materials in an environmentally conscious manner is to use newly developed thin film superlattice layer coatings that provide a means to eliminate the use of flood cooling and the associated peripheral equipment. The practical significance of the development of these coatings is related to eliminating the need for cooling and lubrication by fluids and the need to machine at ever increasing cutting speeds. The effects of reducing tool life is a particular challenge in high speed machining, and Machining with Nanomaterials explains how coatings can improve tool life and reduce machining costs in an environmentally acceptable way. Drawing upon years of practical experience and using numerous examples and illustrative applications Mark Jackson and Jonathan Morrell discuss: The nature of lubrication and cooling between workpiece and tool The significant nanoscale coatings currently available for use The latest experiments conducted on industrial alloys and workpiece materials How coatings are deposited and qualified The importance of the proper design of cutting tools, including milling tools, single point turning tools and micro cutting tools. Machining with Nanomaterials will be of interest to material scientists, academic researchers, and industrial engineers interested in or currently developing machining techniques using nanomaterials and working in the fields of nanotechnology and nanomanufacturing.
