Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover
Manufacturing Processes for Engineering Materials, Fourth Edition is a comprehensive text, written mainly for students in mechanical, industrial, and metallurgical and materials engineering programs. The text, as well as the numerous examples and case studies in each chapter, clearly show that manufacturing engineering is a complex and interdisciplinary subject. The topics are organized and presented in such a manner that they motivate and-challenge students to present technically and economically viable solutions to a wide variety of questions and problems, including product design. Since the publication of the third edition, there have been rapid and significant advances in various areas in manufacturing. The fourth edition of Manufacturing Processes for Engineering Materials, while continuing with balanced coverage of the relevant fundamentals, analytical approaches, and applications, reflects these new advances.

New in the Fourth Edition:
  • A new Chapter 13 on fabrication of microelectronic and micromechanical devices.
  • Expansion of design considerations in each chapter. r New examples and case studies throughout all chapters.
  • A total of 1230 questions and problems; 32% more than in the third edition.
  • End-of-chapter questions and problems now include problems on design; a total of 140 design problems.
  • Figures have been improved or redrawn for better graphic impact.
  • More cross-references to sections and chapters throughout the text. Bibliographies have been thoroughly updated.

About the Author
Serope Kalpakjian taught and conducted research at the Illinois Institute of Technology for 38 years prior to his retirement in 2001 as professor emeritus of mechanical and materials engineering. After graduating from Robert College (high honors), Harvard University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he joined Cincinnati Milacron, where he was a research supervisor in advanced metal-forming processes. He is the author of numerous technical papers and several articles in handbooks and encyclopedias and has edited various conference proceedings. In addition, Professor Kalpakjian has served on the editorial bards of several journals and the Encyclopedia Americana and is the coauthor of Lubricants and Lubrication in Metalworking Operations. Both first editions of his textbooks, Manufacturing Processes for Engineering Materials and Manufacturing Engineering and Technology, have received the M. Eugene Merchant Manufacturing Textbook Award. He is a Life Fellow of the ASME, Fellow of the SME, Fellow and Life Member of ASM International, emeritus member of CIRP (International Institution for Bookion Engineering Research), and a founding member and past president of NAMRI/SME.

Among the awards Professor Kalpakjian has received are the Forging Industry Educational and Research Foundation Best Paper Award (1966), an Excellence in Teaching Award from IIT (1970), the Centennial Medallion from the ASME (1980), the International Education Award from the SME (1989), a Person of the Millennium Award from IIT (1999), and the Albert Easton White Distinguished Teacher Award from ASM International (2000). SME named the Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award after Professor Kalpakjian for the year 2002.

Steven R. Schmid is an associate professor with the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, University of Notre Dame, where he teaches and performs research in the general areas of manufacturing, machine design, and tribology. As the director of the Manufacturing Tribology Laboratory at the university, he oversees industry- and government-funded research on a variety of manufacturing topics, including tribological issues in rolling, forging and sheet-metal forming, polymer processing, medical-device design and manufacture, and nanomechanics.

He received the B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology (with honors) and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, both in mechanical engineering, from Northwestern University. He has received numerous awards, including the John T Parsons Award from the SME (2000), the Newkirk Award from the ASME (2000), and the Kaneb Center Teaching Award (2000). He is the recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREERS Award (1996) and an ALCOA Foundation Award (1994). Dr. Schmid is the author of over 50 technical papers; has edited three conference proceedings; has coauthored two books, Fundamentals o f Machine Elements and Manufacturing Engineering and Tecbnology; and has contributed two chapters to the CRC Handbook of Modern Tribology. He serves on the Tribology Division Executive Committee of the ASME, is an associate editor of the Journal o f Manufacturing Science and Engineering, and is a registered professional engineer and certified manufacturing engineer.

The fourth edition of this text, like the previous editions, continues to make an attempt at presenting a comprehensive, balanced, and up-to-date coverage of the relevant fundamentals and real-world applications of engineering materials and manufacturing processes and systems and the analytical approaches involved. The topics covered throughout the 16 chapters reflect the rapid and significant advances that have taken place in various areas in manufacturing, and they are organized and described in such a manner to draw the interest of students. The case studies, mostly from industry, make the subject of manufacturing science arr4engineering less abstract by showing students the practical aspects of process applications.

Integration of product design and manufacturing has justly resulted in greater recognition and prestige for these disciplines, and this edition therefore puts greater emphasis and better focus on this increasingly important subject. While studying this text, students should be able to assess the capabilities, limitations, and potential of production processes, including, particularly, the processes' economic and competitive aspects. The discussions throughout the chapters are aimed at motivating and challenging students to explore technically and economically viable solutions to a wide variety of important questions and problems in product design and manufacturing.

This book has been written mainly for undergraduate students in mechanical, industrial, and metallurgical and materials engineering programs; it is also useful for graduate courses in manufacturing science and engineering. The text, as well as the numerous examples and case studies in each chapter, clearly shows that manufacturing engineering is an interdisciplinary and complex subject and that it is as important, exciting, and challenging as any other engineering discipline.

4It can't be helped...
By Ian
While this book is a fantastic overview of all things materials and their many, many, many different methods of processing, the text is beyond dry when it comes to actual readability. A few weeks could have been set aside in the writing process to make the text far less formulaic and repetitive than it is currently, but that effort was obviously not made.

However, its impossible to fault a textbook for being dry, and that's the only reason the single star was docked. The descriptions of the manufacturing processes and their applications, on the other hand, were detailed and helpful, and the book is recommended in that regard.

1False Advertising
By Shay
The picture is of the English Edition. I received the international edition. False Advertising. There was also no mention of it being the international Edition in the Description. If I wanted the international Edition, I would have bought a cheaper one. I Spent more thinking I was getting what was advertised in the description and in the picture as this was what I needed for class. I paid more money for something I could have gotten for $20 because I wanted something that would best help me in class.
