Responding to the need for an integrated approach in manufacturing engineering oriented toward practical problem solving, this updated second edition describes a process morphology based on fundamental elements that can be applied to all manufacturing methods - providing a framework for classifying processes into major families with a common theoretical foundation. This work presents time-saving summaries of the various processing methods in data sheet form - permitting quick surveys for the production of specific components.;Delineating the actual level of computer applications in manufacturing, this work: creates the basis for synthesizing process development, tool and die design, and the design of production machinery; details the product life-cycle approach in manufacturing, emphasizing environmental, occupational health and resource impact consequences; introduces process planning and scheduling as an important part of industrial manufacturing; contains a completely revised and expanded section on ceramics and composites; furnishes new information on welding arc formation and maintenance; addresses the issue of industrial safety; and discusses progress in non-conventional processes such as laser processing, layer manufacturing, electrical discharge, electron beam, abrasive jet, ultrasonic and eltrochemical machining.;Revealing how manufacturing methods are adapted in industry practices, this work is intended for use by students of manufacturing engineering, industrial engineering and engineering design; and also for use as a self-study guide by manufacturing, mechanical, materials, industrial and design engineers.Responding to the need for an integrated approach in manufacturing engineering oriented toward practical problem solving, this updated second edition describes a process morphology based on fundamental elements that can be applied to all ...
