Machining is the manufacturing process by which parts can be produced to the desired dimensions and surface finish from a blank by gradual removal of the excess material in the form of chips with the help of a sharp cutting tool. Almost 90% of the all engineering components are subjected to some kind of machining during manufacture. It is very important to design those parts in such a way that would lead to the increase in efficiency of the machining process, enhancement of the tool life and reduction of the overall cost of machining. To achieve these targets, a brief knowledge of various machining processes is required. Fig 1 depicts a brief classification of various machining processes that are widely used in the manufacturing and fabrication industries of all kinds.Design for Machining.pdf (1.6% u)
