Description : This fascinating book will be of as much interest to engineers as to art historians, examining as it does the evolution of machine design methodology from the Renaissance to the Age of Machines in the 19th century. It provides detailed analysis, comparing design concepts of engineers of the 15th century Renaissance and the 19th century age of machines from a workshop tradition to the rational scientific discipline used today.
Description : This handbook is a comprehensive collection of useful design data and reference material needed both by practising machine tool engineers and engineering students. This fully indexed volume covers design of machine elements, machine tool design practices, electrical and hydraulic systems of machine tools, machining data together with standard mathematical and basic engineering reference data. The handbook presents various aspects of machine tool design with suitable illustrations and tables contributed by senior designers in the field of machine tools. It is an authoritative practically oriented handbook consolidating the theoretical and working design practices. The handbook aims to serve students, design engineers and development engineers of machine and equipment with guidelines for making reliable and practical solutions. It will be an indispensable handbook in the field of machine tools and production engineering.
