This thoroughly revised book, now in its second edition, gives a complete coverage of the fundamental concepts and applications of Production Engineering.
Divided into six parts, the text covers the various theoretical concepts, design and process of metal cutting, the design and mechanism of various machine tools, and various aspects of precision measurement and manufacturing. The concepts and processes of metal working and the design of press tools, various modern methods of manufacturing, such as ultrasonic machining (USM), electrochemical deburring (ECD), and hot machining are also covered. A variety of worked-out examples and end-of-chapter review questions are provided to strengthen the grasp as well as to test the comprehension of the underlying concepts and principles. The text is extensively illustrated to aid the students in gaining a thorough understanding of various production processes and the principles behind them.
The text is intended to serve the needs of the undergraduate students of Mechanical Engineering and Production Engineering. The postgraduate students of Mechanical Engineering and Production Engineering will also find the book highly useful.
