Overview

This book introduces the current state-of-the-art technology in materials and manufacturing processes with an emphasis on the rapidly growing technologies in the plastics and aerospace industries. It takes a unique approach by presenting specific materials and manufacturing processes, then progresses into a discussion of the ways in which these materials and processes are integrated into today's functioning manufacturing industry. KEY TOPICS A four-part organization presents materials and their applications; covers specific manufacturing processes; emphasizes tolerances, measurement, and calibration; and discusses the design, tooling, and production aspects of manufacturing. For individuals preparing for an engineering technology career.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I like your book for a survey of manufacturing processes. Most other books go into such detail that it could take two, three, or four courses to fully cover the material. It is difficult to use a book of that depth as an introduction to manufacturing; your book will do the job." — Thomas J. Beck, Texas A&M University

"The text's strengths are excellent illustrations, breadth of topics, and easy-to-understand treatment." — Ramamurthy Prabhakaran, Old Dominion University

Booknews
Intended primarily for survey courses in materials and manufacturing processes, this text contains four sections: materials and their applications; measurement and quality assurance; specific manufacturing processes; and the design, tooling, and production aspects of manufacturing, including how the manufacturing industry functions. Includes an extensive glossary and abundant b&w illustrations. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Read an Excerpt

Modern Materials and Manufacturing Processes, Third Edition, presents state-of-the art technology in materials and manufacturing processes. Written for engineering technology and vocational students, the text is descriptive in nature and relies more on descriptive material than analysis. The book covers a broad range of materials and processes and includes plentiful illustrations.

This text discusses both traditional and recently developed materials and processes. In addition to presenting the specific materials and processes of manufacturing normally included in a survey course, the text, in a unique approach, shows how those materials and processes are integrated into today's functioning manufacturing industry. This makes the text a good fit for a survey course for engineering technology and vocational students covering both materials and manufacturing processes.

Modern Materials and Manufacturing Processes is organized to present clear, sequential course material for any teaching system, whether competency-based or traditional. Objectives and key words at the beginning of each chapter clarify the goals of each chapter and familiarize the student with important terminology encountered on each topic. Over 1000 illustrations and photographs complement the text. Case studies and case problems are included where appropriate to promote student thought and discussion. Questions and case problems may be used for review or examination purposes. An extensive and newly enhanced glossary, including approximately 160 new terms, concludes the book.

New to This Edition

  • New and updated illustrations throughout.
  • Complete glossary: approximately 160 new terms/definitions.
  • Glossary terms appear in boldface in text.
  • New Key Words feature begins each chapter.
  • Each chapter has introductory summary of the chapter's content to improve the pedagogy of the material.
  • New Introduction chapter.
  • Expanded coverage of ceramics, plastics, and composites.
  • New Chapter 7, Design Specifications and the Capability of the Manufacturing Process, explains the importance of precision before the subsequent chapters cover manufacturing processes.
  • Parts II and III have been reversed so that manufacturing processes are covered before measurement and quality assurance.
  • New Chapter 22 covers automation and mass production.
  • Material has been reordered and updated throughout to be more logical and complete.
Content and Organization

Part I, Materials of Manufacture, discusses the basic materials used in manufacturing: metals, plastics, and ceramics. Chapters 1-3 identify and classify these materials by their atomic makeup, similarities, and differences. Chapters 4 and 5 explain how the materials are extracted from raw materials, and how the materials are processed. Chapter 6 reviews the many classification systems used for common metallic materials, and then discusses the properties and characteristics that lead to their selection and application.

The detailed coverage in Part I allows the student to proceed to a study of product manufacturing that uses these materials. Where appropriate, newly developed materials, processes, and methods are presented throughout the text.

Part II, Survey of Manufacturing Processes, discusses specific manufacturing processes and their capabilities. Chapter 7 is a new chapter on the specifications used in design and their relationship to the capabilities of the manufacturing process to be used. Subsequent chapters cover casting, cold and hot forming, forging, powdered metal processes, machining, plastics manufacturing, the joining of materials, and non-traditional manufacturing processes. Chapter 18 on the corrosion and protection of metals concludes Part II.

Part III, Measurement and Quality Assurance, Chapters 19 and 20 introduce measurement and quality assurance, with particular emphasis on tolerance, measurement, and calibration.

Part IV, Manufacturing Systems, Chapters 21 and 22 discuss the design, tooling, and production aspects of manufacturing. These final chapters also introduce modern automation methods, including computer-aided design (CAD) and rapid prototyping, as designers' tools; plus computer aided manufacturing (CAM) topics, including computer numerical control (CNC) and industrial robotics. The integration of these technologies is discussed as computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) and flexible manufacturing systems (FMS), culminating in total factory automation.

As mentioned above, a Glossary updated to feature 160 additional terms completes this edition of the text.
