Often further operations are required for the parts manufactured by forming, casting and the other shaping processes to ensure an accurate and precise assembly. The control of dimensional tolerances and the surface finish for the parts manufactured is of utmost requirement because of necessity for the parts to have interchangeable characteristics so that they function as expected during their service life. The present chapter is an itroduction into machining processes.
