When people make a call on a cellphone, drive a car, or turn on a computer, few truly appreciate the innovations in material selection, technology, and fabrication that were required to make it all possible. Innovations in Materials Manufacturing, Fabrication, and Environmental Safety explores expected developments in analysis, design, testing, and operations that will be essential to successful, practical, more cost-effective fabrication of products and their components.
Determine how robotics and intelligent machine (RIM) technology can enhance YOUR manufacturing enterprise
From electronics to welding, this book covers manufacturing processes that incorporate intelligent machines into the material processing and fabrication cycle—and it explains how so many innovations are dependent on government funding and research assistance.
With contributions from a panel of experts from industry, government, and academia, this book examines how materials are selected through a process that must account for economic issues and various requirements related to health and environmental safety, energy limitations, and more. It includes examples of existing and developing selection methods—and corresponding fabrication processes—used in the aerospace, industrial, commercial, military, and electronics industries. Some of these processes and fabrication methods include:
This book breaks down each process, covering everything from testing background, why and where a method is be
