Principles and Process
Edited by Richard Crowson
Parts Fabrication discusses efficient deductive and systematic appraoches to machine debugging while providing a refresher on the principles of structural mechanics.
- Presents simple solutions to everyday structural problems for individuals with little or no knowledge of mechanics.
- Introduces the materials most commonly used and provides an explanation of the properties that make a particular material or alloy a desirable choice for a specific application.
- Introduces conventional processes and equipment for sheet metal fabrication, machining, extrusion and forging, and casting and molding.
- Discusses the design advantages and range of application of nontraditional machining methods.
- Provides some guidelines on the right way to develop plastic applications.
- Explore cost-effective manufacturing technologies that allow the technical benefits of composite structures to translate into competitive advantages in the marketplace.
- Discusses cleaning and surface preparation processes necessary to prepare the metal for its ultimate finish.
