Product Description:

Far more ambitious than any similar reference, the Handbook of Manufacturing Processes is an in-depth compilation of the workings of more than 1500 manufacturing processes in the metalworking, chemicals, textiles, plastics, ceramics, electronics, wood, and food industries; as well as a wide-ranging presentation of how more than 600 important products, components, and materials are made. Logically organized in two sections--a process section and a products section--it describes clearly and succinctly the operations performed in the world's factories. Heavily illustrated, it is an extraordinarily comprehensive source of technical manufacturing information. Manufacturing and process engineers, factory managers and supervisors, and anyone who has an interest in or needs to know about manufacturing operations and how products are made - including those not technically trained -- will find in this book a treasure trove of useful information.

Distinctive Features
- Practical, understandable explanations, even for complex processes.
- Clear, jargon-free descriptions of how each of 1500 current and recently developed manufacturing processes work, what they do to the material or workpiece that is worked on, what the results are, and where these processes are used and why.
- Precise explanations of how 600 products, components, and materials are made.
- Text entries that are coded as in an outline, with these alpha/numerical designations carried over to the related illustrations for easy cross-referencing.
- Related processes that are grouped together; and sequential operations that are covered in order.
- Contributions from an Editorial Board of 24 experts.
- More than 600 line drawings and photographs.
- A detailed table of contents and very extensive index.

Summary: Excellent Historical Detail of Manufacturing
Rating: 5

Mr. Bralla's newest effort completely encompasses the 'how, why,where and when" of evolutionary engineering. Value added...most certainly with detailed 24/7 historical solutions presented joyfully by someone supported by career success' and offered to the educated, the uneducated
at every level of production. A must for every library.

Summary: Handbook of Manufacturing Processes
Rating: 5

This handbook is a joy to leisurely browse for information and inspiration about how things are, or were, made. Or if you have a specific interest, the well organized indices make the pertinent section easy to find. With the retirement and dislocation of our domestic manufacturing personnel and facilities, such clear and well illustrated discussions are difficult to find elsewhere. Subjects from abrasives to zippers are covered, including sections of food technology, chemicals, plastics, materials and textiles. An excellent addition to an engineer's, historian's, or technophile's bookcase.
