The importance of metrology, the science of measurement, to successful manufacturing cannot be overstated. If you can’t measure it, you may be making something, but it’s not likely to be a precision product. Even more to the point, production stops if its output can’t be measured. Industrial Press has long recognized the importance of measurements and measuring systems and has published a wide variety of books, including dimensional measurement, inspection and gaging, to help ensure that you are measuring all the critical factors of your manufacturing operations accurately and on time.

  3. Interpretation of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, Third Edition

    Interpretation of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, Third Edition



    Completely updated for ASME Y14.5-2009! Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) has become accepted around the world as the international symbolic language that allows engineers and machinists to use engineering drawings to communicate from the design stage through manufacturing and inspection. Deductively organized, this book is a complete on-the-job reference that provides a thorough understanding to the complex ASME Y14.5-2009 "Dimensioning and the Tolerancing" standard.



    • Uses a "building-block" approach with examples (some dimensioned and toleranced in inches and some in millimeters) to illustrate each concept.
    • Reinforces the explanations with end-of-chapter self evaluation exercises (the answers to all questions and problems are contained in the back of the book).
    • Includes over one hundred drawings that illustrate concepts under discussion.
    • Provides the information needed to become conversant in the techniques of GD&T and how to smoothly integrate this knowledge into engineering design and modern inspection systems.

  4. Metal Shaping Processes

    Metal Shaping Processes



    As the only comprehensive text focusing on metal shaping processes, which are still the most widely used processes in the manufacture of products and structures, Metal Shaping Processes carefully presents the fundamentals of metal shaping processes with their relevant applications. The treatment of the subject matter is adequately descriptive for those unfamiliar with the various processes and yet is sufficiently analytical for an introductory academic course in manufacturing. The text, as well as the numerous formulas and illustrations in each chapter, clearly show that shaping processes, as a part of manufacturing engineering, are a complex and interdisciplinary subject. The topics are organized and presented in such a manner that they motivate and challenge students to present technically and economically viable solutions to a wide variety of questions and problems, including product design. It is the perfect textbook for students in mechanical, industrial, and manufacturing engineering programs at both the Associate Degree and Bachelor Degree programs, as well a valuable reference for manufacturing engineers (those who design, execute and maintain the equipment and tools); process engineers (those who plan and engineer the manufacturing steps, equipment, and tooling needed in production); manufacturing managers and supervisors; product design engineers; and maintenance and reliability managers and technicians.



    • Each chapter begins with a brief highlighted outline of the topics to be described.
    • Carefully presents the fundamentals of the particular metal-shaping process with its relevant applications within each chapter, so that the student and teacher can clearly assess the capabilities, limitation, and potentials of the process and its competitive aspects.
    • Features sections on product design considerations, which present guidelines on design for manufacturing in many of the chapters.
    • Offers practical, understandable explanations, even for complex processes.
    • Includes text entries that are coded as in an outline, with these numerical designations carried over the 320 related illustrations for easy cross-referencing.
    • Provides a dual (ISO and USA) unit system.
    • Contains end-of-chapter Review Questions.
    • Includes a chapter on sheet metalworking covering cutting processes; bending process; tubes and pipe bending; deep drawing processes; other sheet metal forming process (stretch forming, spinning, rubber forming, and superplatic forming and diffusion bonding).
    • Provides a useful die classification with 15 illustrations and description; presses for sheet metalworking; and high energy-rate forming processes.
    • A chapter on nontraditional manufacturing process discusses such important processes as mechanical energy processes (ultrasonic machining, water jet cutting); electrochemical machining processes (electrochemical machining, electrochemical grinding); thermal energy processes (electric discharge processes, laser beam machining, electron beam machining); and chemical processes (chemical milling).

  5. Geometric Transformations for 3D Modeling

    Geometric Transformations for 3D Modeling


    Get Your Transformations On
    Delivering the theory and application of geometric transformations is the comprehensive mission of Geometric Transformations for 3D Modeling by Michael E Mortenson. The 380 page hardcover volume is the second edition. It provides a thorough introduction. Written from the standpoint of transformation mathematics, the content is accessible by students, teachers and professionals in the field. It is also ideal for practitioners in engineering, math and physics beyond the manufacturing industry.

    The first three chapters provide needed abstract foundation material and theory to cue up actual transformations in subsequent chapters. The author's approach reduces the clutter of theoretical derivation in the remaining text. Mortenson introduces operational and application-centered tools and concepts as the need dictates.

    The volume assumes that readers are already familiar with analytic geometry and first-year calculus. Readers should also possess basic working knowledge of matrix and vector algebra. With these prerequisites, Geometric Transformations for 3D Modeling will appeal to anyone working in 3D and geometric modeling, computer graphics, animation, robotics and kinematics. Learn More

  6. Geometric Transformations for 3D Modeling (CD-ROM in PDF)

    Geometric Transformations for 3D Modeling (CD-ROM in PDF)



    This is the ebook version of the printed book. Written from a mathematical standpoint accessible to students, teachers, and professionals studying or practicing in engineering, mathematics, or physics, the new second edition is a comprehensive introduction to the theory and application of transformations. Presenting the more abstract foundation material in the first three chapters, Geometric Transformations in 3D Modeling reduces the clutter of theoretical derivation and development in the remainder of the text and introduces the operational and more application-oriented tools and concepts as the need arises.

This self-contained resource is sure to appeal to those working in 3D modeling, geometric modeling, computer graphics, animation, robotics, and kinematics.



    • Explores and develops the subject in much greater breadth and depth than other books, offering readers a better understanding of transformation theory, the role of invariants, the uses of various notation systems, and the relations between transformations.
    • Describes how geometric objects may change position, orientation, or even shape when subjected to mathematical operations, while properties characterizing their geometric identity and integrity remain unchanged.
    • Presents eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and tensors in a way that makes it easier for readers to understand.
    • Contains revised and improved figures, with many in color to highlight important features.
    • Provides exercises throughout nearly all of the chapters whose answers are found at the end of the book.
