About this Textbook

This textbook is aimed at providing an introduction to the subject for undergraduate students studying mechanical and manufacturing engineering at most universities. Many of the universities prescribe a syllabus that contains both Design of Jigs and Fixtures, and Design of Press Tools in a single semester course. Keeping the above in mind, this book is designed in two parts. Part-I deals with Jigs and Fixtures and Part-II is earmarked exclusively for the study of Press Tools. Both these subjects are built progressively in successive chapters. A separate appendix, in each part, provides short answer questions with answers, which will help the students in clarifying doubts and strengthen their knowledge. The explanatory notes and illustrations provided in the book will serve as an aid for learning. End-of-chapter questions and answers will prove useful for self study. This textbook will be extremely useful for the students and practicing engineers studying mechanical, manufacturing, and production engineering.
