Precision Engineering by V. C. Venkatesh

ByREriksen Rasmus

This book owes its inspiration to the M Sc Programme in precision engineering initiated in GINTIC Institute of Technology, Singapore by Cranfield University lecturers—Prof. P.A. McKeown, Prof. J. Corbett, and Prof. W. Wills Moren during the author’s tenure at NTU, Singapore during 1993–97. This was further enhanced by the author’s CIRP and ASPE membership and his attendance of their conferences. However, the main push was the purchase of Precitech’s ultra-precision turning and grinding (UPTG) machine whose working needed to be understood. The need for high stiffness brought about by hydrostatic and aerostatic bearings made the author work in this area while introducing the course at the undergraduate level in NTU and later for seven years in UTM, Johor Bahru, Malaysia. The author’s success with the publication of his first book Experimental techniques in metal cutting in 1981, followed by a 2nd Edition in 1987 strengthened his resolve to write on precision engineering.
