Product Description

Product Description

This brand new textbook by one of the leading engineering authors covers basic sheet-metal fabrication and welding engineering principles and applications in one volume - an unrivalled comprehensive coverage that reflects current working and teaching practice. It is fully up-to-date with the latest technical information and best practice and also includes chapters on non-technical but equally essential subjects such as health and safety, personal development and communication of technical information.

Roger Timings covers these areas of mechanical engineering and workshop practice in a highly practical and accessible style. Hundreds of illustrations demonstrate the practical application of the procedures described. The text includes worked examples for calculations and key points to aid revision. Each chapter starts with learning outcome summaries and ends with exercises which can be set as assignemnts.

The coverage is based on the SEMTA National Occupational Standards which makes this book applicable to a wide range of courses and ensures it also acts as a vital ongoing reference source in day-to-day working practice. All students, trainees and apprentices at up to and including Level 3 will find this book essential reading, particularly those taking:

Level 2 NVQs in Performing Engineering Operations
Level 2 and 3 NVQs in Fabrication and Welding Engineering
Level 2 NVQs in Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering
C&G 2800 Certificate and Level 3 Diplomas in Engineering and Technology
SEMTA Apprenticeships in Engineering

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabrication and welding book 4 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback
I bought this book recently as I'm doing the NC Fabrication and Welding course at college. I rate this book very highly as it covers several units were are covering. It covers health and Safety, Materials, Welding processes, Graphic communication, Fabrication processes and marking out. Plus more.
There may be better books out there covering individual subjects more in depth, but at our level of study it's more than adequate as it has plenty of illustrations and information.
I rated the book 5 out of 5 because of what I wrote.

I have to say I was very impressed with this book, although I have worked in this field for over 20 years there are still things in here that I didn't know, or had forgotten, you never stop learning in this game nor should you. I would highly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok as reference book 5 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Some useful info, especially general. Not much specific on how to use MIG or TIG welder which is what I wanted. Some info seemed historic to me.
