The philosophy of precision engineering dates back to about the early 1930s when this area ofengineering was discussed in a very broad context. Today, renowned bodies in this engineeringdiscipline such as the Japanese Society of Precision Engineering (JSPE), the American Society ofPrecision Engineering (ASPE), the European Society for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology(EUSPEN) and the International Academy for Production Research (CIRP—Collège International
Recherhe Production) are vigorously pursuing this topic. However, in the early 1990s, Nakazawa’s book entitled “Principles of Precision Engineering”  made a remarkable impact in this regard when it was published, elucidating the principles underlying the design and fabrication of high-precision machines.
There is a need for manufacturing engineers to understand that there is more to do with manufacturing processes than just using the best machine tools. There is a wide range of advanced technology products available that are totally dependent on high-ultra precision manufacturing processes in conjunction with the design and development of the high-precision machines and their comprehensive capability control systems. Hence, in this book, emphasis is placed on precision processes and principles of precision machine tools and precision cutting tools such as single crystal cutting tools.
