Precision Manufacturing

Authors: Dornfeld, David, Helu, Moneer M.

  • Discusses how precision manufacturing "fits-in" to the field of engineering, and the critical role precision machine design for manufacturing has had in technological developments over the last hundred years
  • Discusses and explains the importance of measurement and metrology in the context of precision manufacturing
  • Explains the role of sensors in precision manufacturing and how they can reduce uncertainty in systems introduced by interfaces between machine elements, process elements and materials, etc
  • Discusses the new and emerging filed of nano manufacturing and its impact on precision manufacturing
  • The adherence to precision manufacturing techniques during the production process prevents waste, increases interchangeability among similar parts, lowers the manufacturing cost and often increases quality

About this book

Today there is a high demand for high-precision products. The manufacturing processes are now highly sophisticated and derive from a specialized genre called precision engineering. Precision Manufacturing provides an introduction to precision engineering and manufacturing with an emphasis on the design and performance of precision machines and machine tools, metrology, tooling elements, machine structures, sources of error, precision machining processes and precision process planning. As well as discussing the critical role precision machine design for manufacturing has had in technological developments over the last few hundred years. In addition, the influence of sustainable manufacturing requirements in precision processes is introduced.

Drawing upon years of practical experience and using numerous examples and illustrative applications, David Dornfeld and Dae-Eun Lee cover precision manufacturing as it applies to:

The importance of measurement and metrology in the context of Precision Manufacturing.

The role of sensors in precision manufacturing and how they can reduce uncertainty in systems introduced by interfaces between machine elements, process elements and materials, etc.

New and emerging fields of micromachining and nano manufacturing and their importance and impact on precision manufacturing

Precision manufacturing techniques during the production process and how these techniques prevent waste, increase interchangeability among similar parts, lower the manufacturing cost and increase quality.

Precision Manufacturing will be of interest to design engineers, quality engineers and manufacturing engineers, academics and those who may or may not have previous experience with precision manufacturing, but want to learn more.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"A well-planned, timely addition to the … published literature on the manufacturing process. The book starts with a historical introduction to the process of manufacturing in general, and machining in particular, and ends with a chapter devoted to environmental issues involved with machining. … The references section, containing 560 published articles dealing with every aspect of precision machining, is particularly useful. This reviewer congratulates the authors on their excellent work. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Academic engineering collections; upper-division undergraduates through professionals involved with precision machining." (K. Srinagesh, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (9), 2008)
