- Publisher's Summary
- This comprehensive reference was written with a single goal-to assist design professionals in their job quickly and efficiently. Designed with the working mechanical designer in mind, users will save time in selection, sizing, and tolerancing of mechanical parts and assemblies. And it is packed with essential charts and tables such as fastener data, locating feature data, material selection guides, and component selection charts. Most books containing similar data are targeted at shop personnel or students. Focusing on the most common needs of the design professional, it pares down the information to just what they most frequently need while providing the quickest possible access to necessary data. Because the job of the design professional has changed significantly this handbook aims to complement the software and assist in its efficient use. Features * Presents design data in groups corresponding to these design activities to minimize time spent flipping pages. * Speeds up the selection process through contained formulas and guides that are designed to assist the working engineer while selecting machine components from catalogs rather than designing these common components from scratch. * The full-size format is ideal for reading charts easily, and an included sheet of page tab stickers allows the user to mark pages they find particularly useful. * Intended to be a quick guidebook but contains frequent references to specific entries in Machinery's Handbook for in-depth treatment of most subjects.
