Construction and Design

From Ingenious Mechanisms to Mastercam Mill to Blueprint Reading, Industrial Press offers a wide range of resources vital to the design and development of products, materials and machines.

  1. Ingenious Mechanisms 4 Vol Set (eBook only)

    Each of the four volumes of Ingenious Mechanisms is an independent treatise on the subject of mechanisms. The books are similar in size and general character, but the contents are different. The mechanisms described are grouped into chapters according to general types. Together with the complete index, this arrangement by function makes it easy to find the class of movement desired, and enables you to compare mechanisms which are similar in purpose but different in design.


    Note that these four volumes are no longer available in printed form, but they are available as eBooks.

  3. Heating Systems Troubleshooting & Repair

    Most of the work technicians routinely perform is in maintaining existing equipment as opposed to installing new systems. The procedures and visual observation conditions presented in this title will enable technicians to perform their tasks more effectively. By knowing how the equipment is designed, built, and how the materials behave over time, they will be better able to execute a maintenance program extending equipment life and reducing unplanned malfunctions. This book’s emphasis is on implementing these actions correctly and in a timely basis so that equipment experiences an increase in “life expectancy,” reliability, more efficient energy performance, and a reduction in the possibility of future failures and liability. While the main focus of this work is on equipment installed in residential homes, the procedures detailed certainly apply to larger commercial heating equipment as well.

  5. Machine Design Elements and Assemblies

    Over Michael Spektor’s illustrious career in industry and academia, he has searched for a better resource from which to teach his students, and a way to improve current texts to better reflect the proper structure of how machine elements are presented, and introduce the calculations and design considerations necessary for creating assemblies. The result is this textbook, which is the first available to students of the course Machine Design (also called “Machine Elements”) that truly prepares them to meet industry challenges by accelerating their introduction to solving real-life engineering programs. Machine Design Elements and Assemblies methodically describes the material in a way that broadens and deepens the engineering knowledge related to the design of mechanical systems, in a much more concise, less expensive package.

  20. Design for Reliability

    In this groundbreaking book, Dan Daley intends to correct the imbalance in how DFR is often implemented by providing owners with the tools they need to ensure that their requirements - not the seller’s - are followed in developing new assets. This book will be an invaluable guide to everyone involved in the design, development, or purchase of new assets. It will help owners take the necessary steps to get what they really need, and it will help sellers “deliver the goods” that their customers – the owners – actually want.
