It continues with a discussion of specific manufacturing processes such as casting, cold and hot rolling, forming, forging, plastics molding and joining of materials and shows how materials and manufacturing are integrated into an efficient manufacturing facility. It considers modern automation methods including CNC, CAD/CAM, industrial robotics and flexible manufacturing systems. Also discussed is how the industry functions, including a review of job titles and responsibilities. A practical approach to the material features numerous illustrations, case studies and problems and review questions.
