About This Class

'Fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering' makes complicated machining calculations easy!

e161a027

This course includes video and text explanations of machining and manufacturing, and it includes more than 30 worked through examples with easy-to-understand explanations. This course is organized into ten sections:

In this course you will learn these essential manufacturing processes and calculations;

  1. Basic Manufacturing
  2. Turning
  3. Punching
  4. Milling
  5. Holding and Drawing Force
  6. Feasibility Ratios
  7. Drilling 
  8. Bending
  9. Centrifugal Casting
  10. Production Cycle Time

These are the 10 fundamental chapters in the study of machining for mechanical engineers.

Watch over my shoulder as I solve problems for every single machining issue you’ll encounter. We start from the beginning... First I teach the theory. Then I do an example problem. I explain the problem, the steps I take, why I take them and how to simplify the answer when you get it.
