Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

An exceptionally readable training resource designed in a flexible "stand-alone" chapter format, this modern book 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 readers , 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.

Excerpt provided by Syndetics

While in engineering college, I noticed many textbooks dealing with the theoretical side of mechanics but few dealing with actual industrial mechanical equipment. Individuals seeking a solid background in the basic principles and real-life equipment used in industrial mechanics today need a modern, advanced, industrial textbook with a practical hands-on approach. The text should also be useful for those already working in industry who want to enrich and expand their knowledge of mechanical equipment used in industry. FOR WHOM THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN This book was written to fill the need for an up-to-date, practical teaching resource that focuses on the needs of industrial mechanics, technicians, and engineers working with industrial mechanical and power-transmission products. It is based on feedback from students and instructors along with ideas from different industries with which I have worked over the years. It is designed to be used as the principal text for training the industrial mechanic in postsecondary vocational schools and colleges, on-the-job training, and apprenticeship programs. It can also serve as a real-world text for mechanical engineering or engineering technology. ORGANIZATION OF THIS BOOK Readability is my prime concern, so I have used a direct, straightforward approach along with detailed illustrations. Instead of separate chapters on safety and troubleshooting, I have integrated safety and troubleshooting tips in each chapter. This comprehensive approach encourages students to learn about the safety and troubleshooting components along with the basic information associated with a topic. Instructors can teach the material in the 12 chapters in sequential order or change the order of chapters to accomplish specific goals.
