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. 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.

  6. 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.
