A textbook on fundamentals of grinding for training purposes

" a commitment to impart truth and confidence in a noncommerical way"

With his education, ground breaking research on continuous-dress creep feed grinding,and extensive industrial experience, Dr. Salmon is well qualified to discuss machining and grinding in modern industry. Though his company Advanced Manufacturing Science and Technology, now called Next Generation Technology Group Inc., Dr. Salmon consults world wide with companies large and small to optimize processes, to machine and grind next generation materials, to evaluate technologies for suppliers and users alike, and to teach machine operators and management about machining and grinding technology.
Dr. Salmon originally wrote this book in 1988 as part of the Modern Grinding Course for SME which grew into the three-day certificate program with hands on activities. Recognizing the importance of the book to the knowledge base of technical literature for grinding, AES asked for and was given permission to make copies of this book.
