CHAPTER 4

Manufacturing Considerations

Chapter Objectives

  1. Design a component with respect to machining surfaces in order to provide machining centers for turning operations and to provide a recess in the joining edges of two machined surfaces.

  2. Design a component to be cast such that internal sharp corners are eliminated, by providing a proper filet radius and it can be uniformly blended into a thick section.

  3. Design a component to be forged by providing draft angles in dies, avoiding deep recesses and abrupt changes in thickness.

  4. Design a weldment by providing a proper butt/fillet joint as per the requirement and select electrodes for specific strengths in shear, tension and compression.

  5. Provide a proper tolerance as per the fit required ...
