Dormer re-releases ‘best seller’

A new version of a technical data handbook which has become something of a global best seller in its sector over the years has just been published.
Sheffield-based Dormer Tools, the only cutting tool manufacturer to offer a publication of this type, has produced the 200-page pocket-sized hardcopy of the book as part of its long-term investment in technical support, education and training.
The publication follows the launch of a downloadable app of the technical handbook, which is now available on iTunes and Google Play.
Simon Winstanley, Marketing Coordinator, Dormer Tools, said, “We are really excited about the new version and expect it to be of huge interest to the trade. Given the sheer range and depth of material contained, it will also be of use to universities and engineering students generally.”
The handbook is split into several sections, each detailing information suitable for use by the professional engineer or technician. Sections have been arranged according to machining process (drilling, milling, threading), and there is also a chapter on regrinding.
A trouble-shooting table at the end of each section looks at the causes of common machining problems and offers possible solutions.
A general information section covers all aspects of cutting tool application and geometry, including hints, material classifications and machining tolerances. The book also offers a comprehensive list of formulae for calculating speeds and feeds, power, torque and thrust.
