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. Blueprint Reading Basics

    Written by a seasoned professional with more than 50 years experience in manufacturing, the new third edition of this widely used text and self-training manual has been expanded to include many new and revised worksheets designed to facilitate the reader's ability to form a mental picture from a drawing. Blueprint Reading Basics reviews the subject in great detail using many illustrations and examples, as well as thoroughly reviewing all other aspects of print reading. It includes industry standards, practices, and copies of industrial prints throughout, providing a balanced presentation of blueprint reading theory and industry applications. And it is the perfect text for students taking blueprint reading, machine shop, or tool and die courses, as well as machinists, mechanics, technicians, and inspectors.


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


    Please also note that there is a newer edition of this classic text, Hammer's Blueprint Reading Basics, 4th Edition.

  4. Assembly Automation, Second Edition

    Success in automatic assembly design and operation comes from an awareness and sensitivity to a multitude of small design details, and only Frank Riley could pack so much knowledge and experience into a practical and authoritative guide to the selection and application of automatic assembly machinery. This book provides a thorough overview of management, engineering, and machine operator considerations necessary to ensure successful specification, procurement, design, manufacture, installation, and sustained productivity of new assembly systems.

  5. Value Analysis Tear-Down

    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.

  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. 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.

  8. Mass Finishing Handbook

    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!
