From the Back Cover:

Modern Materials and Manufacturing Processes, Third Edition, is an introductory text that presents broad coverage of both materials and processes, from raw material to finished product: The text is written for a survey course that covers both materials and manufacturing processes at the technology level.

In the third edition, topics have been reordered and updated throughout to be more logical and complete. For instance, the new Chapter 7 introduces design requirements before subsequent chapters cover manufacturing processes. Manufacturing processes are covered before measurement and quality assurance. New and updated illustrations in every chapter maintain the texts reputation for abundant and excellent graphics.

New features of this edition:
  • New and updated illustrations throughout
  • Key Terms feature begins each chapter
  • New introductory summary at start of each chapter
  • New "Introduction" chapter
  • Expanded coverage of ceramics, plastics, and composites
  • New Chapter 7, "Design Specifications and the Capability of the Manufacturing Process," introduces requirements before the subsequent chapters cover manufacturing processes
  • New Chapter 22 covers automation and mass production

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Modern Materials and Manufacturing Processes, Third Edition, presents state-of-the art technology in materials and manufacturing processes. Written for engineering technology and vocational students, the text is descriptive in nature and relies more on descriptive material than analysis. The book covers a broad range of materials and processes and includes plentiful illustrations.

This text discusses both traditional and recently developed materials and processes. In addition to presenting the specific materials and processes of manufacturing normally included in a survey course, the text, in a unique approach, shows how those materials and processes are integrated into today's functioning manufacturing industry. This makes the text a good fit for a survey course for engineering technology and vocational students covering both materials and manufacturing processes.

Modern Materials and Manufacturing Processes is organized to present clear, sequential course material for any teaching system, whether competency-based or traditional. Objectives and key words at the beginning of each chapter clarify the goals of each chapter and familiarize the student with important terminology encountered on each topic. Over 1000 illustrations and photographs complement the text. Case studies and case problems are included where appropriate to promote student thought and discussion. Questions and case problems may be used for review or examination purposes. An extensive and newly enhanced glossary, including approximately 160 new terms, concludes the book.

  • New Chapter 22 covers automation and mass production.
  • Material has been reordered and updated throughout to be more logical and complete.

Content and Organization

Part I, Materials of Manufacture, discusses the basic materials used in manufacturing: metals, plastics, and ceramics. Chapters 1-3 identify and classify these materials by their atomic makeup, similarities, and differences. Chapters 4 and 5 explain how the materials are extracted from raw materials, and how the materials are processed. Chapter 6 reviews the many classification systems used for common metallic materials, and then discusses the properties and characteristics that lead to their selection and application.

The detailed coverage in Part I allows the student to proceed to a study of product manufacturing that uses these materials. Where appropriate, newly developed materials, processes, and methods are presented throughout the text.

Part II, Survey of Manufacturing Processes, discusses specific manufacturing processes and their capabilities. Chapter 7 is a new chapter on the specifications used in design and their relationship to the capabilities of the manufacturing process to be used. Subsequent chapters cover casting, cold and hot forming, forging, powdered metal processes, machining, plastics manufacturing, the joining of materials, and non-traditional manufacturing processes. Chapter 18 on the corrosion and protection of metals concludes Part II.

Part III, Measurement and Quality Assurance, Chapters 19 and 20 introduce measurement and quality assurance, with particular emphasis on tolerance, measurement, and calibration.

Part IV, Manufacturing Systems, Chapters 21 and 22 discuss the design, tooling, and production aspects of manufacturing. These final chapters also introduce modern automation methods, including computer-aided design (CAD) and rapid prototyping, as designers' tools; plus computer aided manufacturing (CAM) topics, including computer numerical control (CNC) and industrial robotics. The integration of these technologies is discussed as computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) and flexible manufacturing systems (FMS), culminating in total factory automation.

As mentioned above, a Glossary updated to feature 160 additional terms completes this edition of the text.
