Description

For undergraduate courses in Manufacturing Processes.

Manufacturing Engineering describes and explains existing production processes and machinery. More importantly, it uses the powerful analytical tools of machine science (heat transfer, vibrations, control theory) and applies them to the solution of manufacturing problems. There is more emphasis on the analytical development and application of engineering theory to manufacturing problems and students are encouraged to generate their own computer solutions to gain understanding.

Features

  • Integrates analytical tools from other machine science subjects (e.g., heat transfer, vibrations, control theory) and applies them to manufacturing processes.
  • Includes chapters on machine tools and other production equipment discussing the aspects of performance and design of drives, structures, and controls.
  • Emphasizes understanding of production machinery, its improvement and automation, so students can specify, select, install, and use new equipment.
  • Presents analytical development and necessary derivations in some detail and encourages students to develop their own computer programs to solve problems.

Author

GEORGE TLUSTY is a Graduate Research Professor at the University of Florida where he is Director of the Machine Tool Research Center. He has been very active in all segments of machine tool research since the 1950s. Professor Tlusty's current activities include the development of techniques and machines for High Speed milling of aluminum aircraft parts done in conjunction with McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) and further HS milling of hardened steel parts. He has written two other books and published over 100 research papers. He is a Founding Member and Past President of NAMRI, Fellow of ASME, Fellow of SME, and Registered Professional Engineer of Ontario. Professor Tlusty received the Czechoslovak State Prize of 1954, the 1979 SME Gold Medal, 1980 ASME Centennial Medallion, 1990 ASME Blackall Award and the 1997 ASME W.T. Ennor Manufacturing Technology Award.
