Here is one the first books in a new series built on the authority of Rob Thompson's highly acclaimed Manufacturing Processes for Design Professionals. Clearly presented and highly detailed, each book is organized into three easily referenced parts: forming, joining, and finishing. An explanation of each manufacturing process provides a full technical description; analysis of typical applications; and information on cost, speed, and environmental impact. Step-by-step case studies show a product or component being manufactured by a leading international supplier. Photographs of geometry, detail, color, and surface finish complete the practical information.
