Manufacturing Engineering describes and explains existing production processes and machinery. More importantly, it uses the powerful analytical tools of machine science (heat transfer, vibrations, control theory) and applies them to the solution of manufacturing problems.
There is more emphasis on the analytical development and application of engineering theory to manufacturing problems and readers are encouraged to generate their own computer solutions to gain understanding. Includes chapters on machine tools and other production equipment discussing the aspects of performance and design of drives, structures, and controls.
For anyone interested in Manufacturing Processes.
This textbook for a senior level course in the mechanical and industrial engineering curriculum concentrates on the traditional processes of forming, cutting, assembly, and welding and the corresponding equipment before concluding with a chapter on the more specialized nontraditional processes.
