Manufacturing Industry

 

From Machinery's Handbook — the "Bible of the mechanical industries" — to manufacturing technology to manufacturing process and materials to assembly automation to inspection and gaging to value analysis tear–down to lapping and polishing to purchasing, Industrial Press offers a wide range of resources vital to the manufacture of products and materials.

 

  1. Industrial Robotics

    You have been tasked with increasing productivity and increasing quality, while at the same time lowering the cost of your manufacturing processes. 
    The solution is to automate … but how?

     

    Identifying a manufacturing process that can be automated is often a daunting task. It requires a team approach to qualifying, validating, and then finally, implementing a program. This book takes you through the best practices for each step, regardless of the application type or the industry segment. It will show you how to achieve the system expectations that were planned for and benchmarked, and it will also help identify the most common pitfalls - all without having to eliminate employees.

  3. Handbook of Manufacturing Processes

    Unlike any other reference, Handbook of Manufacturing Processes is an in-depth compilation of the workings of more than 1500 different manufacturing processes in metalworking, chemicals, textiles, plastics, ceramics, electronics, wood and food industries; as well as how more than 600 important products, components, materials are made. Logically organized in two sections (a process section and a products section), it describes clearly and succinctly the operations performed in the worlds factories. Heavily illustrated, it is a comprehensive source of technical manufacturing information that manufacturing engineers and managers, process engineers, and anyone who has an interest in or needs to know about manufacturing operations and products will not easily find anywhere else.

  4. Mass Finishing Handbook (eBook only)

    Compiled from the author’s 40 years of research and, this detailed handbook provides “how-to” details of all mass finishing/loose abrasive finishing processes that experienced finishers will find as useful as the first-time user. It covers 16 basic mass finishing processes, including vibratory, centrifugal disc, magnetic abrasive, cryogenic, and chemical-assisted processes—offering data and charts based on thousands of measurements to make process selection easier. In addition to providing case histories and a host of practical tips, it also discusses mass finishing economics, edge requirements, surface requirements, side effects, the impact of burr size and part definition, media, and compounds. Whether you’re a manufacturing engineer buying a machine for the first time, or a shop foreman, or an experienced user who is looking for ideas for more economical approaches; this is the perfect resource for you!


    Note that this book is no longer available in printed form, but it is available as an eBook.

  5. Guide to Hard Milling and High Speed Machining

    This volume is a continuation of author's first book, Hard Milling & High Speed Machining: Tools of Change. It featured different cutters developed for hard milling and high speed machining. In this current guide, you will find yet more variables associated with this process. In this book six machine manufacturers are covered in the first six chapters: Mikron, Okuma, Yasda, Roku Roku, Johnford and Moore. They explain the different approaches to building machines for this process. Also covered are two holder manufacturers Heartech Precision and Big Kaiser, one probe and laser manufacturer Blum. Furthermore the author includes some of his most recent development work done on hard-to-machine materials and new cutters on the market today.

  6. Lean Manufacturing: Implementation Strategies that Work

    Divided into three basic sections, this unique resource provides an understandable and implementable approach to inserting Lean in a manufacturing operation, pointing out the stumbling blocks and pitfalls to avoid. Its goal is to to help American manufacturing more effectively go about the task of making Lean a viable process. The significance of the work is that, if followed, it could change the entire course of how Lean Manufacturing is implemented in the United States and help manufacturing, in general, to become more competitive on a worldwide scale.

  7. Value Analysis Tear-Down

    This book is out of stock and no longer available.

     

    This book presents, for the first time, a new technology for improving products and innovating new and better products, first developed in Japan by Yoshihiko Sato. Value analysis tear-down combines traditional tear-down with the technologies of value analysis and value engineering. Within a few years of its public announcement in Japan, value analysis tear-down was adopted by all eleven Japanese automobile manufacturers, and many of the Japanese consumer electronics manufacturers. Jerry Kaufman, based in Houston, Texas, is a recognized authority and author on value engineering and value management, and has contributed much that is in these technologies to the process described in this book. The result of his collaboration with Mr. Sato is a process that helps engineers and managers reduce product cost, improve quality, continuously improve existing products, and discover opportunities for innovative change.
