5.0 out of 5 stars A book that all manufacturing students need, 25 Mar 2003

This review is from: Manufacturing Technology: v.1: Vol 1 (Paperback)
As a basis of manufacturing techniques, technology, processes & information this title showers the reader with useful information.
Students tend to get notes from lecturers where manufacturing processes or techniques are only touched on. This title becomes invaluable to these students, as manufacturing is covered from the very basics. The author introduces students to techniques which are used to in everyday manufacturing, these include the explanation of shape forming, i.e. mouldings & extrusions, tooling, metal fabrications, heat treatments, finishing processes, quality control, health and safety, CNC, design for assembly, etc..
The author does an excellent job by introducing, perhaps new knowledge to students with great ease. The content covered in this title exists in the 'real' world, and we have here an author who can translate this with great accuracy and ease. Automation is not covered here, but it is not necessary unless the basics of manufacturing is learnt. Once these techniques are learnt, then automation becomes more easier to understand and implement.
I am appreciating this now, as I am working in manufacturing and the lessons I have gained prior is proving to be a great help.
If you want to get industrial knowledge, then get this book.
