See manufacturing processes in action with a new DVD! This updated edition id packaged with a new DVD based on the society of manufacturing Engineers' Fundamental Manufacturing Processes video series. The DVD contains 22 video clips (5 to 6 minutes each) that promote visualization of key manufacturing processes. Reflecting the increasing importance of ceramics, polymers, composites, and silicon in manufacturing, Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing Second Edition provides a comprehensive treatment of these other materials and their processing, without sacrificing its solid coverage of metals and metal processing. Topics include such modern processes as rapid prototyping, microfabrication, high speed machining and nanofabrication. Additional features include: Emphasis on how material properties relate to the process variables in a given process. Emphasis on manufacturing science and quantitative engineering analysis of manufacturing processes. More than 500 quantitative problems are included as end of chapter exercises. Multiple choice quizzes in all but one chapter (approximately 500 questions). Coverage of electronics manufacturing, one of the most commercially important areas in today2s technology oriented economy. Historical notes are included to introduce manufacturing from the earliest materials and processes, like woodworking, to the most recent.Mikell P. Groover is the author of 'Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing: Materials, Processes, and Systems Update' with ISBN 9780471656760 and ISBN 0471656763.
