  3. Machine Designers Reference

    Machine Designers Reference

    $79.95
    • Presents design data in groups corresponding to these design activities to minimize time spent flipping pages.
    • Speeds up the selection process through contained formulas and guides that are designed to assist the working engineer while selecting machine components from catalogs rather than designing these common components from scratch.
    • The full-size format is ideal for reading charts easily, and an included sheet of page tab stickers allows the user to mark pages they find particularly useful.
    • Intended to be a quick guidebook but contains frequent references to specific entries in Machinery's Handbook for in-depth treatment of most subjects.

  4. Die Design Fundamentals, Third Edition

    Die Design Fundamentals, Third Edition

    $49.95

    Overview

    Retaining its unique and much praised organization, this leading text has been revised to reflect the most recent developments in design tools. It provides balanced coverage of relevant fundamentals and real-world practices so that students, apprentices and on-the-job professionals can understand the important and often complex interrelationships between die design and the economic factors involved in manufacturing sheet-metal forming products. Following introductory material and a discussion of 20 types of dies in Chapter 2, the design process of a representative die is separated into seventeen distinct chapters. Each chapter is one step which is illustrated in two ways; first, as a portion of an engineering drawing, that is, as the component is actually drawn on the design. Second, the die design is shown pictorially in order to improve the user’s visualization. In successive sections each step is detailed as it is applied to the design of the various types of dies listed in Chapter 2.

     

    Features

    • Includes English and Metric systems.
    • Covers new methods of producing blanks, such as waterjet cutting and laser cutting.
    • Contains a glossary of terms for the first time.
    • Illustrates each step in pictorial view and as a portion of an engineering drawing.
    • Offers a completely revised chapter on presses and quick die-changing systems and includes the addition of “Quick Die Change Systems.

  5. Design for Reliability

    Design for Reliability

    $49.95

    Overview

    None of the few Design for Reliability (DFR) books currently available addresses the process from the owner’s (or buyer’s) perspective. Instead, they approach DFR strictly from the seller’s (or manufacturer’s) viewpoint. As a result, few assets are designed and developed with the intent to meet the future owner’s specific needs for reliability, availability, and maintainability over the life of the asset. In this groundbreaking new book, Dan Daley intends to correct the imbalance in how DFR is often implemented by providing owners with the tools they need to ensure that their requirements - not the seller’s - are followed in developing new assets.

     

    This book will be an invaluable guide to everyone involved in the design, development, or purchase of new assets. It will help owners take the necessary steps to get what they really need, and it will help sellers “deliver the goods” that their customers – the owners – actually want.

     

    Features

    • Explains how to properly integrate DFR activities with conventional design activities.
    • Provides a simple system to ensure DFR activities are completed on time.
    • Provides spreadsheets and forms needed to portray design results in a clear and usable format.
    • Includes the tables and forms needed to support the design processes and procedures presented in each chapter.
    • Includes appendices that provide an example specification that owners can modify when procuring a new asset and example tables useful in assessing how well the DFR process has met the owner’s needs.

  6. Plastic Component Design

    Plastic Component Design

    $49.95

    Overview

    This book is for the industrial designer interested in the applications of plastics in products and industry. It explains how different plastics are processed, and it contains extensive examples of common and unusual plastic components and products with an explanation of how they are manufactured. Every year, more products are being replaced or augmented by the same product made from plastic, and this trend has resulted in much debate about the effectiveness of plastic replacements. Today's plastics can be designed to operate in all weather conditions and chemical surroundings. They can be economically produced for short run part production or readily adapted to high quantity production, and they can be cut, glued, tapped, or machined by traditional methods to suit design needs.

     

    Features

    Explains how to choose the best processing method, what fastening or joining methods can be used, and how to use the characteristics of a plastic to judge its suitability for an application. Covers all major contemporary molding processes. Discusses, in detail, important topics such as surface finish and special effects.
