Manufacturing generates wealth, whereas high-precision manufacturing is even more lucrative. Mechanical engineers, professionals and students can turn to Precision Engineering for an in-depth understanding on manufacturing of optical, electronic and mechanical products. Starting with an introduction to precision engineering, the book describes theory and design of precision machines as well as mechanics of ultra-precision machining. It also discusses manufacturing based on atomic bit processes as well as topics like atomic force, scanning, electron and optical microscopy, surface finish and clean rooms. The book is designed as per the syllabi of NTU Singapore, UTM Johor Bahru, Malaysia and MMU Melaka, Malaysia.7.15: The line diagram of a compressed air installation . Preloading is a method of increasing the bearing stiffness. When air bearings are loaded, the air gap gets smaller, and the pressure in the air film rises. Because air is a compressibleanbsp;...
