Synopses & Reviews
Illustrates recently developed fixture design and verification technology, focusing on their central role in manufacturing processes. The text uses up-to-date computer technology to minimize costs, increase productivity and assure product quality. It presents advanced data and analysis that is directly applicable to development of comprehensive computer-aided modular fixture design system.
Book News Annotation:
Illustrates recently developed computer-aided fixture design (CAFD) techniques such as the application of computers to edit and modify a fixture design based in a fixture component database, a group technology-based fixture design retrieval system, automated generation of fixture configurations, and advanced analysis and verification of fixture designs. Rong (mechanical engineering, Worchester Polytechnic Institute) and Zhu (mechanical engineering, Beijing Institute of Machinery Industry) also review three generations of CAFD systems, demonstrating their progressive increases in efficiency and their growing need for more sophisticated computer analysis. The book can be used as a textbook for engineering graduate students or as a reference for manufacturing engineers.
