Manufacturing Processes and Materials, Fourth Edition
Society of Manufacturing Engineers, 2000 - Technology & Engineering - 842 pages
This book masterfully covers the basic processes and machinery used in the job shop, toolroom, or small manufacturing facility. At the same time, it describes advanced equipment and processes used in larger production environments.
Questions and problems at the end of each chapter can be used as self-tests or assignments. An Instructor's Guide is available to tailor a more structured learning experience. Additional resources from SME, including the Fundamental Manufacturing Processes videotape series (selected by the Wisconsin Manufacturing Curriculum Consortium as "recommended resources" supporting the competency-based objectives of its Tech Span curriculum) can also be used to supplement the book's learning objectives.
With 31 chapters, 45 tables, 586 illustrations, 141 equations and an extensive index, Manufacturing Processes & Materials is one of the most comprehensive texts available on this subject.
