Manufacturing Technology is intended for those studying engineering manufacture for HNC/D and first/second-year engineering degree courses. The broad and in-depth coverage of this two-volume approach ensures that these texts not only satisfy the requirements of technician students up to the highest level but also provide an excellent technical background for undergraduates studying for a degree in mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering and combined engineering.

Volume 2 is divided into three key sections covering the technology of manufacture, the management of manufacture and health, safety and environmental issues.

Part A - Metallic Materials: Alloy Steels.
The Heat Treatment of Steels.
Welded and Brazed Materials.
Corrosion Protection.
Part B - Non-Metallic Materials: Ceramics and Composites.
Polymeric (plastic) Materials.
Part C - Materials in Practice: Deformation and Failure of Materials.
Bearings and Bearing Materials.
Tool Materials.
Electrical Properties of Materials.
Semiconductor Materials and Manufacturing Processes.

• Provides a practical rather than a theoretical approach.
• Covers all the main manufacturing processes.
• Now includes self-assessment tasks, end of chapter exercises and chapter summaries.
