This third edition of Lissaman and Martin’s popular text. Principles of Engineering Manufacture has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the technological developments of the last decade, and the changes to both the engineering industry and the type of student embarking on courses in mechanical and manufacturing engineering. It provides a comprehensive overview of the wide range of processes used in modern manufacturing and their applications, followed by an in-depth study of their underlying principles. It is truly introductory, assuming little or no first hand experience of the technology involved. Practical examples are used to illustrate the relationship between theory and practice and strong support has been received from many world class companies, notably Black & Decker and Sandvick. Written in the context of current pressures to improve efficiency while maintaining quality, and relating these to both design and manufacture, it will prove invaluable to engineers throughout their degree course and essential for all who wish to improve their understanding of the fundamentals of modern engineering.
