Why learning manufacturing
Why Learning Manufacturing?

  • Manufacturing employsof engineers in the U.S. (from US Bureau of Economic Analysis)

  • Manufacturing solution should be an integral part of product design

  • Linking material properties and mechanics to production aspects

Manufacturing history part 1
Manufacturing History (part 1)

  • Late middle ages (1400’s) – birth of the middle class & people specialize into professions

    • 1439 →

  • 1760-1830 Industrial Revolution typified by the “”

    • Manufacturing is moved from home based “handicraft” to assembly in “ ”

    • The James Watt steam engine replaces water, wind, & animal power as the primary energy source

    • Cotton Processing (Spinning Jenny, Cotton Gin, Power Loom) brought about the birth of the

    • Iron foundries are built where coke replaces charcoal and bar iron enables potting and stamping

    • The Eli Whitney muskets demonstrate the viability of assembly

Manufacturing history part 2
Manufacturing History (part 2)

  • 1850-1910 SecondIndustrial Revolution typified by “”

    • Mass production of steel enables railroads and big machinery

    • “Canning” of foods – birth of food processing

    • Birth of the chemical industries including petroleum refining

    • Factories get electrical power enabling longer work hours ( also invented)

    • Assembly line manufacturing

    • The internal combustion engine and the birth of the automobile industry (, 1885)

    • Scientific management of manufacturing brings about the birth of the field:

Manufacturing history part 3
Manufacturing History (part 3)

  • 1980-present Third Industrial Revolution identified by the “ ”

    • Birth of automation

    • Expanse of multinational corporations and offshore production

  • Forth Industrial Revolution?

Manufacturable materials part 1
Manufacturable Materials (part 1)

  • Metals

    • Ferrous (based upon )

      • Steel – most often an (<2%) alloy, but chromium, magnesium, nickel, and molybdenum alloys are useful

      • Cast iron – most often an (2-4%) - (0-3%) alloy

    • Nonferrous & Alloys (all other metals)

      • Al, Cu, Au, Mg, Ni, Si, Sn, Ti, Zn, etc.

Manufacturable materials part 2
Manufacturable Materials (part 2)

  • Plastics

    • – can be heated multiple times (PE, PS, PMMA, etc.)

    • – cure to a rigid shape (phenolics, epoxies, etc.)

    • – significant elastic behavior (rubber, silicone, PU, etc.)

Manufacturable materials part 3
Manufacturable Materials (part 3)

  • Ceramics

    • Combination of a metal (or semimetal) + inorganic nonmetal

    • Examples: clay, glass, alumina, metal carbides, semimetal nitrides

    • Two categories: glasses (which melt) and crystalline ceramics

Manufacturable materials part 4
Manufacturable Materials (part 4)

  • Composites (not really a separate category of material)

Nonhomogeneous mixtures of the other three basic types rather than a unique category.

e.g. glass particles or fibers mixed in a polymer “matrix” material, or tungsten carbide in cobalt (metal binder) to make a cutting tool.

Processing operations
Processing Operations

  • Increases workpart’s value by altering:

    • shape,

    • physical property,

    • appearance

  • Three categories:

    • Shaping operations (e.g. , etc.)

    • Property-enhancing operations (e.g. )

    • Surface processing operations (e.g. , etc.)

Shaping processes
Shaping Processes:

  • Solidification processing

    • Starting material is a heated liquid or semifluid

  • Particulate processing

    • Starting material is a powder

  • Deformation processing

    • Starting material is a ductile solid (commonly metal) that is deformed to form the part

  • Material removal processing

    • Starting material is a solid from which material is removed to form the part

    • Traditional techniques (turning, drilling, milling) Non-traditional techniques (laser, electron beam, chemical erosion, electric discharge, and electrochemical)

Goal of shaping operations
Goal of Shaping Operations

  • To minimize and in converting a starting workpiece into its final part

  • Manufacturing processes that convert nearly 100% of the starting material into product is called

Property enhancing processes
Property Enhancing Processes

  • Processes that do not alter the of the workpiece:

    • Heat treating (e.g. tempering steel)

    • Annealing (e.g. to reduce stress in glass)

    • Sintering (joins and strengthens powder shaped metals and ceramics)

Surface processes
Surface Processes

  • Cleaning

    • Both and means to remove dirt, oil, and other contaminants

  • Surface treatments

    • Mechanical (e.g. sand blasting or shot peening)

    • Physical (e.g. diffusion, ion implantation)

  • Coatings

    • e.g. painting, anodizing, electroplating, porcelain enameling, thin film deposition, etc.

Assembly operations
Assembly Operations

Two or more separate parts are joined to form a new entity

Types of assembly operations:

  • Joining processes – create a joint

    • Welding, brazing, soldering, and adhesive bonding

  • Mechanical assembly – fastening by mechanical methods

    • Threaded fasteners (screws, bolts and nuts); press fitting, expansion fits

What is dfm
What is DFM?

  • Design for Manufacturability (DFM): By understanding and analyzing the fundamental manufacturing processes, reduce the of production while achieving optimal product

  • Quality and lifetime of the products should not be left until the test stage, but actively brought into consideration by design, manufacture and assembly.

  • Rule of 10: order of magnitude increase on the cost of repair when changes are made at later stages (from parts → subassembly → assembly → final product on market → customer)


  • Attend lectures, be on time, read chapters, and participate.

  • We are going to cover a lot of manufacturing processes – their strengths and weaknesses.

  • We are going to cover the tools to understand and optimize manufacturing.

  • This class is to help you be able to better design a product for manufacturing.
