Tool Engineering and Management
Tool engineering is a very important area of production engineering. It includes metal cutting, pressing, and several work holding devices. Metal cutting is the operation wherein thin layer of metal is eliminated by wedge shaped tool. Metal cutting is commonly related with industries like aerospace, automotive, home appliance, etc. The machining of metal and alloys play a vital role in the range of manufacturing activities including ultra precision machining of extremely delicate components.
