For over 40 years, students, designers, and manufacturing practitioners have used the Fundamentals of Tool Design to gain an in-depth understanding of all the factors that impact tool success. Fully illustrated, readers will find practical design examples, cost analysis calculations, process data, operating parameters, and tips and techniques — all of the concrete knowledge needed to spark innovation and resolve complex tooling challenges.

New to the sixth edition, you'll find updated and expanded tool designer objectives and responsibilities, a designer's guide to machine tools, revised tool material, mechanical definitions and reference tables, expanded broaching examples and concepts, new sections on part location and support, expanded bushing applications, and revised GD&T information to include ASME Y14.5-2009. New appendices provide sources for tool design components, related web sites and search engines, and handy GD&T reference charts.

Additional review questions are at the end of chapters, along with an expanded, standalone Instructor's Guide enhance training and classroom instruction.
