Metal Shaping Processes focuses on metal shaping processes, the most widely used processes in the manufacture of products and structures. The text carefully presents the fundamentals of metal shaping processes with their relevant applications. The treatment of the subject matter is adequately descriptive for those unfamiliar with the various processes and yet is sufficiently analytical for an introductory academic course in manufacturing. Topics are organized and presented so that they motivate and challenge students to present technically and economically viable solutions to a wide variety of questions and problems, including product design.
This is the perfect textbook for students in mechanical, industrial, and manufacturing engineering programs as well a valuable reference for manufacturing, product design, and process engineers, manufacturing managers and supervisors, and maintenance and reliability managers and technicians.
The Sheet Metal/HVAC Pro Calc is a versatile calculator that enables tradesmen to calculate complex problems with dedicated key functions that are labeled in standard industry terms. The calculator has other advanced built-in construction-math functions to enable HVAC and sheet metal tradesmen to do their work alongside other trades. In addition to the built-in functions, this calculator can handle order of operation, perform square, cube, square root, and cube root calculations, determine ArcK constant for convenient Arc length solutions, and has an offset functions for “S-shaped” bends in ductwork. It can also help solve the layout for wrapper length, centerline radius, and the angle. It works as a regular calculator with typical symbols.
Together, Metal Shaping Processes and the Sheet Metal/HVAC Pro Calculator are the perfect combination resource, providing instant access to metrics and measurements with the flip of a page and press of a button. This incredible set is a must-have for students and professionals in the field of Sheet Metal.
