Introduction. Basic elements of theory (waste development, cutting force/power, surface quality, tool damage, cutting liquids). Cutting tools. Conventional mechanical processing (lathe, milling machine, plane, gear cut, burr drill, corrugation machines, cutting press, polishing machines). Non-conventional mechanical processing (electrowear, ultrasonics, water cut, electric arc, electrochemical process, electron beam use, lasers, other methods). Machine tool control systems. Treatment ability of various materials. Production applications (product design / material selection, method selection / machine tool selection, treatment parameter determination). Mechanical measurements.
