INTRODUCTION TO MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING LM-01 • Manufacturing Engineering Study of various processes required to produce parts and to assemble them into machines and mechanisms. • Classifications of Manufacturing Processes 1. Primary manufacturing processes: Provide basic shape and size to the material as per designer’s requirement. Eg: Casting, forming, powder metallurgy. 2. Secondary manufacturing processes: Provide the final shape and size with tighter control on dimension, surface characteristics. Eg: Material removal processes
• Material removal processes: 1. Conventional Machining Processes: EgTurning, boring, milling, shaping, broaching, slotting, grinding etc. 2. Non-Traditional Machining Processes: EgAJM, USM, WJM, AWJM, EDM, CHM etc.
