Die Design Fundamentals

Die Design Fundamentals, Third Edition
Vukota Boljanovic, J.R. Paquin and R.E. Crowley
320 pages, Illustrated, 8 x 10
Published: October, 2005

Retaining its unique and much praised organization, this leading text has been revised to reflect the most recent
developments in design tools. It provides balanced coverage of relevant fundamentals and real-world practices so that
students, apprentices and on-the-job professionals can understand the important and often complex interrelationships
between die design and the economic factors involved in manufacturing sheet-metal forming products. Following introductory
material and a discussion of 20 types of dies in Chapter 2, the design process of a representative die is separated into
seventeen distinct chapters. Each chapter is one step which is illustrated in two ways; first, as a portion of an engineering
drawing, that is, as the component is actually drawn on the design. Second, the die design is shown pictorially in order to
improve the users visualization. In successive sections each step is detailed as it is applied to the design of the various types
of dies listed in Chapter 2.
