New to this edition are an expanded metrology section, including v-blocks and micrometer, vernier and dial calipers; a new fluid power section covering pneumatic, hydraulic, and vacuum theory and applications; powder metallurgy, including additive manufacturing; tap drill sizes for Unified threads and reaming allowance for drilling; standard mesh and grit sizes; and assembly with dowel pins. Added to recently added topics are micromachining, expanded material on calculation of hole coordinates, an introduction to metrology, further contributions to the sheet metal and presses section, shaft alignment, taps and tapping, helical coil screw thread inserts, distinguishing between bolts and screws, miniature screws, metric screw threads, calculating thread dimensions, keys and keyways, solid geometry, statistics, and fluid mechanics. Numerous major sections have been extensively reworked and renovated throughout, including mathematics, mechanics and strength of materials, properties of materials, dimensioning, gaging and measuring, machining operations, manufacturing process, fasteners, threads and threading, and machine elements. Standards have been updated. The metric content continues to be expanded. Throughout the book, wherever practical, metric units are shown adjacent to the US, customary units in the text. Many formulas are now presented with equivalent metric expressions, and metric examples have been added. The detailed tables of contents located at the beginning of each, section have been expanded and fine-tuned to make finding topics easier and faster. The entire text of this edition, including all the tables. and equations, has been reset, and thousands of figures have been refined and redrawn. The page count has increased, by nearly 100 pages, to 2,896 pages.
