For undergraduate courses in Industrial Technology, Industrial Mechanics, and Basic Industrial Mechanics.

An exceptionally readable training resource designed in a flexible "stand-alone" chapter format, this modern text gives future industrial technicians a solid foundation in basic theory coupled with a practical "hands-on" approach that includes exposure to real-life equipment used in the industry today. Using a direct and straightforward style of writing that has won praise from students and instructors alike, it focuses on the needs of industrial mechanics, technicians and engineers working with industrial mechanical and power transmission products, and integrates safety and troubleshooting components within each chapter to encourage diagnostic skill-building.

Review quote

"I was very impressed with the addition of the Industrial Measuring Tools in Chapter 1 (Section 1-9). This will help students be able to measure pipe, bushings, bolts, and the thickness of metal, especially shim materials we use while doing coupling alignments. I have been using this book for almost two years and have thoroughly enjoyed using it; the chapters are well written and do not overwhelm the students." - Ben Newby, Middle Georgia Technical College

"A little over two years ago we selected the first edition of the subject text because its content, arrangement, and presentation was exactly what we intended to include. We found no other text that 'fit' nearly so well. This second edition is improved and even better fits our needs." - John H. Rohlfs, Snead State Community College

"I like the presentation of material in the chapters of this book. They are written so the material is understandable and in sufficient depth for the students to grasp a basic understanding of the topics covered." - Robert Tuholski, University of Massachusetts, Lowell
