Machining is a science and technology that holds great interest in industrialized countries (G7) and countries with emerging economies (BRICS). Nowadays, several important and advanced industries such as the automotive, aeronautic, aerospace, alternative energy, moulds and dies, and biomedical industries, use machining. Machining is a manufacturing process in which parts are shaped by removal of unwanted material. Interest for this topic has increased over the last twenty years, with rapid advances in materials science, micro and nanotechnology, automation, electronics and computer technology. This book aims to provide research and review studies on machining operations, technology and management.

This research book can be used for final undergraduate engineering courses (for example, mechanical, manufacturing, industrial, materials, etc.) or as a subject on machining at the postgraduate level. Also, this book can serve as a useful reference for academics, manufacturing researchers, mechanical, manufacturing and industrial engineers, and professionals in related industries with machining operations, technology and management.
