An up-to-date text that provides a solid background in manufacturing processes, with a total of 120 examples and case studies, current and comprehensive coverage of all topics, and superior two-color graphics. The sixth edition has been completely updated, and addresses issues essential to modern manufacturing, ranging from traditional topics such as casting, forming, machining, and joining, to advanced topics such as the fabrication of microelectronic devices and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), and nanomaterials and nanomanufacturing. A valuable reference text for manufacturing professionals.
In this introductory book, Groover not only takes a modern, all-inclusive look at manufacturing processes but also provides substantial coverage of engineering materials and production systems. It follows a more quantitative and design-oriented approach than other texts in the market, helping readers gain a better understanding of important concepts. They'll also discover how material properties relate to the process variables in a given process as well as how to perform manufacturing science and quantitative engineering analysis of manufacturing processes.
The book describes both time-tested and modern methods of manufacturing engineering materials. The book's popularity is due to its complete coverage and the author's writing style. FEATURES/BENEFITS NEW--New chapter on Rapid Prototyping (Ch. 19). NEW--Every chapter has been reviewed and updated. Every bibliography has been revised, new examples from industry have been added, and over 30% of the problems are new. Superior use of analogies, discussions and problems. Motivates interest in the subject. Excellent overview of manufacturing concepts is provided with a balance of relevant fundamentals and real-world practice. Covers the latest technological advances--Such as abrasive machining, nanofabrication, rapid tooling and semisolid metalworking. Contains four kinds of EOC problems--Review Questions, Qualitative Problems, Quantitative Problems, and Synthesis and Design Problems.
The authors describe time-tested and modern methods of manufacturing engineering in this fourth edition. Every chapter has been reviewed and updated, as have all the bibliographies. 30% of the problems cited are also new.
Let our teams of experts help you to stay competitive in a global marketplace. It is every company's goal to build the highest quality goods at the lowest price in the shortest time possible. With theManufacturing Engineering Handbookyou'll have access to information on conventional and modern manufacturing processes and operations management that you didn't have before. For example, if you are a manufacturing engineer responding to a request for proposal (RFP), you will find everything you need for estimating manufacturing cost, labor cost and overall production cost by turning to chapter 2, section 2.5, the manufacturing estimating section. The handbook will even outline the various manufacturing processes for you. If you are a plant engineer working in an automotive factory and find yourself in the hot working portion of the plant, you should look up section 6 on hot work and forging processing. You will find it very useful for learning the machines and processes to get the job done. Likewise, if you are a Design Engineer and need information regarding hydraulics, generators & transformers, turn to chapter 3, section 3.2.3, and you’ll find generators & transformers. Covering topics from engineering mathematics to warehouse management systems,Manufacturing Engineering Handbookis the most comprehensive single-source guide to Manufacturing Engineering ever published.
This book takes a modern, all-inclusive look at manufacturing processes. Its coverage is strategically divided-65% concerned with manufacturing process technologies, 35% dealing with engineering materials and production systems.
The first manufacturing book to examine time-based break-even analysis, this landmark reference/text applies cost analysis to a variety of industrial processes, employing a new, problem-based approach to manufacturing procedures, materials, and management. An Introduction to Manufacturing Processes and Materials integrates analysis of material costs and process costs, yielding a realistic, effective approach to planning and executing efficient manufacturing schemes. It discusses tool engineering, particularly in terms of cost for press work, forming dies, and casting patterns, process parameters such as gating and riser design for casting, feeds, and more.
