Includes application on thousands of steels and metals! If you are involved with machining or metalworking or you specify materials for industrial components, this book is an absolute must. It gives you detailed and comprehensive information about the selection, processing, and properties of materials for machining and metalworking applications. They include wrought and powder metallurgy tool steels, cobalt base alloys, cemented carbides, cermets, ceramics and ultra-hard materials. YouAEll find specific guide-lines for optimizing machining productivity through the proper selection of cutting tool materials plus expanded coverage on the use of coatings extended cutting tool and die life. There is also valuable information on alternative heat treatments for improving the toughness of tool and die steels. All new material on the correlation of heat treatment microstructures and properties of tool steels is supplement with dozens of photomicrographs. Information on special tooling considerations for demanding applications such as isothermal forging, die casting of metal matrix composites, and molding of corrosive plastics is also included. And youAEll learn about alternative to ferrous materials for metalworking applications such as carbides, cermets, ceramics and nonferrous metals like aluminum, nickel and copper base alloys. Contents include: Materials for Machining and Grinding Applications, Materials for Metalworking Applications, Heat Treatment and Secondary Processing of Tool Materials, Microstructural Analysis and Failure Analysis of Tool Materials.
