Abstract

As has already been said in Vol. 2, non-metallic materials are highly important in precision engineering. Because of their different properties, special attention must be paid to methods of processing them. Although some of them can be mechanically worked in the same way as metals—and here we should like to refer to Vols. 9 and 10—there are many characteristic processing methods suitable and, indeed, used only for non-metallic materials.
