Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing – Mikell P. Groover – 2nd Edition


Most books introducing manufacturing processes focus almost exclusively on metals. Although metals are certainly important, other materials such as ceramics, polymers and silicon compounds; are increasingly important as today’s manufacturing materials in engineering.

The second edition of Foundations of Modern Manufacturing provides a comprehensive treatment of these other materials and their processing, without sacrificing their solid metal coverage and metal treatment. In addition, new sections have been added on a variety of topics including high speed machining and nanofabrication.
