Processes of Manufacturing provides comprehensive instruction in the various methods of processing metals, plastics, ceramics, and composite materials. The book devotes several chapters each to the major processes used in manufacturing today: casting and molding, forming, separating, conditioning, assembling, and finishing. A final section provides students with an introduction to such process design and control topics as sequencing of operations, automating processes, and quality control. The book is extensively illustrated with photos and a large number of line drawings that clearly convey the details of important processes.
