Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing is a balanced and qualitative examination of the materials, methods, and procedures of both traditional and recently-developed manufacturing principles and practices. This comprehensive textbook explores a broad range of essential points of learning, from long-established manufacturing processes and materials to contemporary electronics manufacturing technologies. An emphasis on the use of mathematical models and equations in manufacturing science presents readers with quantitative coverage of key topics, while plentiful tables, graphs, illustrations, and practice problems strengthen student comprehension and retention.

Now in its seventh edition, this leading textbook provides junior or senior-level engineering students in manufacturing courses with an inclusive and up-to-date treatment of the basic building blocks of modern manufacturing science. Coverage of core subject areas helps students understand the physical and mechanical properties of numerous manufacturing materials, the fundamentals of common manufacturing processes, the economic and quality control issues surrounding various processes, and recently developed and emerging manufacturing technologies. Thorough investigation of topics such as metal-casting and welding, material shaping processes, machining and cutting technology, and manufacturing systems and support helps students gain solid foundational knowledge of modern manufacturing.

The Enhanced E-Text is also available as a standalone product (9781119475217).
