The first part of this volume provides the user with assistance in the selection and design of important machine and frame components. It also provides help with machine design, calculation and optimization of these components in terms of their static, dynamic and thermoelastic behavior. This includes machine installation, hydraulic systems, transmissions, as well as industrial design and guidelines for machine design. The second part of this volume deals with the metrological investigation and assessment of the entire machine tool or its components with respect to the properties discussed in the first part of this volume. Following an overview of the basic principles of measurement and measuring devices, the procedure for measuring them is described. Acceptance of the machine using test workpieces and the interaction between the machine and the machining process are discussed in detail.
The German Machine Tools and Manufacturing Systems Compendium has been completely revised. The previous five-volume series has been condensed into three volumes in the new ninth edition with color technical illustrations throughout. This first English edition is a translation of the German ninth edition.

About the author

Prof. Christian Brecher was elected as university professor for the Chair of Machine Tools at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of the RWTH Aachen University in 2004. He is also a member of the board of directors of the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) and of the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology (IPT), Aachen. His research focus lies on machine, transmission and control technology. Since 2012, as a co-founding member together with Prof. Hopmann, Prof. Brecher is head of the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) of the RWTH Aachen University. Since 2018, Prof. Brecher has been head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology (IPT). Since 2019, he has been the spokesperson for the "Internet of Production" Cluster of Excellence at the RWTH Aachen University.

Prof. em. Dr.-Ing. Dr.-Ing. E. h. Dr.-Ing. E.h. Manfred Weck was head of the Chair of Machine Tools at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of the RWTH Aachen University from 1973 to 2004. Since its foundation in 1980 until 2004, he was also Director and Head of the Department for Production Machines of the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology (IPT), Aachen. He founded the AiF Research Community "Ultrapräzisionstechnik e.V." (Ultraprecision technology) in 1988. Over the years, Prof. Weck received various honors and awards, amongst them the SME Frederick W. Taylor Research Medal in 2007 and the Acceptance into the Hall of Fame of the Manager Magazine in 2015. Furthermore, Prof. Weck received the Aachen Engineering Prize in 2017, honoring him for his life's work.
