Description : "I have never come across a single book that explains the history, design, and use of cleanroom robotics for electronics manufacturing so thoroughly. This is a must read for anyone designing cleanroom equipment for electronics manufacturing!" Jeff Baird, Director of Engineering, Adept Technology, inc "A must read for anyone working on semiconductor or flat panel robotics. This book captures theory, applications, and best practices." Dr. Martin P. Aalund, Director NPI Engineering, KLA-Tencor Corp. "The definitive reference for cleanroom robotics, as well as a practical guide for anyone who wishes to go beyond theory to the economic justifications and real-world commercial requirements to deploy robot technology." Dr. Rich Mahoney, Director of Robotics, Engineering & Systems Division, SRI International From the history and evolution of cleanroom automation to the latest applications and industry standards, this book provides the only available complete overview of robotics for electronics manufacturing. Numerous real-world examples enable you to learn from professional experience, maximize the design quality, and avoid expensive design pitfalls. You'll also get design guidelines and hands-on tips for reducing design time and cost, Compliance with industry and de-facto standards for design, assembly, and handling is stressed throughout, and detailed discussions of recommended materials for atmospheric and vacuum robots are included to help shorten product development cycles and avoid expensive material testing.
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 : This Encyclopedia of Control Systems, Robotics, and Automation is a component of the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems EOLSS, which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

Description : Designed to introduce new technologies to students, instructors, manufacturing engineers, supervisors and managers, this ready reference includes many new manufacturing technologies for those who do not have time to undertake the necessary research. Each topic addresses the following points: a brief description of the technology and where it is used the underlying theory and principles and how the technology works where the technology can be used and what conventional process it may replace the requirements necessary to make it work and some possible pitfalls advantages and disadvantages successful application areas. This state-of-the-art book is sure to be an effective resource for anyone wanting to stay up to date with the very latest technologies in manufacturing.
Description : For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them. Aristotle Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty. Albert Einstein The second most important job in the world, second only to being a good parent, is being a good teacher. S.G. Ellis The fast technological changes and the resulting shifts of market conditions require the development and use of educational methodologies and opportunities with moderate economic demands. Currently, there is an increasing number of edu- tional institutes that respond to this challenge through the creation and adoption of distance education programs in which the teachers and students are separated by physical distance. It has been verified in many cases that, with the proper methods and tools, teaching and learning at a distance can be as effective as traditional fa- to-face instruction. Today, distance education is primarily performed through the Internet, which is the biggest and most powerful computer network of the World, and the World Wide Web (WWW), which is an effective front-end to the Internet and allows the Internet users to uniformly access a large repertory of resources (text, data, images, sound, video, etc.) available on the Internet.
