Machine Shop & Tools

Industrial Press covers a wide range of subjects in Machine Shop and Tools, and this is a core field for our publishing program. Topics include metal stamping, machine tool technology, basic machining, sheet metal forming, and die making.  

  1. Metal Shaping Processes

    Metal Shaping Processes 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. The text, as well as the numerous formulas and illustrations in each chapter, clearly show that shaping processes, as a part of manufacturing engineering, are a complex and interdisciplinary subject.
