Description : This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to electronic technology, products, and manufacturing processes.Reviews principles of production and electronics fundamentals (electronic components, interconnections, printed wiring boards, soldering and solderability); explains automatic assembly (automation, leaded component insertion, and surface-mount device placement); discusses life-cycle engineering (design for assembly, quality and reliability, testability, and environmental stress screening); and explores manufacturing systems (facilities and materials handling, production and inventory control, production economics).For electrical or industrial engineers interested in electronics manufacturing.
Description : Manufacturing, reduced to its simplest form, involves the sequencing of product forms through a number of different processes. Each individual step, known as an unit manufacturing process, can be viewed as the fundamental building block of a nation's manufacturing capability. A committee of the National Research Council has prepared a report to help define national priorities for research in unit processes. It contains an organizing framework for unit process families, criteria for determining the criticality of a process or manufacturing technology, examples of research opportunities, and a prioritized list of enabling technologies that can lead to the manufacture of products of superior quality at competitive costs. The study was performed under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation and the Defense Department's Manufacturing Technology Program.
Description : The first manufacturing book to examine time-based break-even analysis, this landmark reference/text applies cost analysis to a variety of industrial processes, employing a new, problem-based approach to manufacturing procedures, materials, and management. An Introduction to Manufacturing Processes and Materials integrates analysis of material costs and process costs, yielding a realistic, effective approach to planning and executing efficient manufacturing schemes. It discusses tool engineering, particularly in terms of cost for press work, forming dies, and casting patterns, process parameters such as gating and riser design for casting, feeds, and more.
Description : About five to six years ago, the words 'packaging and manufacturing' started to be used together to emphasize that we have to make not only a few but thousands or even millions of packages which meet functional requirements. The aim of this book is to provide the much needed reviews and in-depth discussions on the advanced topics surrounding packaging and manufacturing. The first chapter gives a comprehensive review of manufacturing chal lenges in electronic packaging based on trends predicted by different resources. Almost all the functional specifications have already been met by technologies demonstrated in laboratories. However, it would take tremendous efforts to implement these technologies for mass production or flexible manufacturing. The topics crucial to this implementation are discussed in the following chapters: Chapter 2: Challenges in solder assembly technologies; Chapter 3: Testing and characterization; Chapter 4: Design for manufacture and assembly of electronic packages; Chapter 5: Process modeling, optimization and control in electronics manufacturing; and Chapter 6: Integrated manufacturing system for printed circuit board assembly. The electronics-based products are very competitive and becoming more and more application-specific. Their packages should fulfill cost, speed, power, weight, size, reliability and time-to-market requirements. More importantly, the packages should be manufacturable in mass or flexible production lines. These chapters are excellent references for professionals who need to meet the challenge through design and manufacturing improvements. This book will also introduce students to the critical issues for competitive design and manufacturing in electronic packaging.
Description : Now in its eleventh edition, DeGarmo's Materials and Processes in Manufacturing has been a market-leading text on manufacturing and manufacturing processes courses for more than fifty years. Authors J T. Black and Ron Kohser have continued this book's long and distinguished tradition of exceedingly clear presentation and highly practical approach to materials and processes, presenting mathematical models and analytical equations only when they enhance the basic understanding of the material. Completely revised and updated to reflect all current practices, standards, and materials, the eleventh edition has new coverage of additive manufacturing, lean engineering, and processes related to ceramics, polymers, and plastics.
Description : The sequence of events which led to the writing of this book started at a seminar on Manufacturing Technology in the Electronics Industry given by the Institution of Production Engineers in 1987. The seminar identified that the field of manufacturing engineering for the electronics industry was effectively missing from the vast majority of production engineering degree courses. The reason for this was that production engineering departments typically spring from mechanical engineering departments. This leads to a mechanical bias in the practical aspects of such courses. The consequence of this was that electronics companies could not recruit graduates with both relevant production engineering and electronic engineering backgrounds. This necessitated either recruiting production engineering graduates and giving them the necessary electronic engineering training, or giving production engineering training to electronic engineering graduates. A consequence of the lack of courses in a subject is that there is also a lack of relevant textbooks in the area, as most textbooks are intended to tie into courses. In the field of manufacturing technology for the electronics industry, existing textbooks tend to be highly specialized and mainly concerned with the fabrication of semiconductor devices.
