Your one-stop idea guide for time-saving, ready-to-use mechanical component designs! Whatever you design, engineer, or invent-from locomotives to tape recorders-if your application requires components that MOVE GRIP or LOCK... you need this book. An unmatched compilation of proven design ideas and solutions, Mechanisms and Mechanical Devices Sourcebook-describes and illlustrates over 1,700 tested mechanisms, linkages, cams, variable-speed drives, gears, clutches, brakes, belts, glexures, chucks, clamps, and springs you can use is-or modify to meet your needs; shows you how these components combine successfully with electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, optical, thermal, or photoelectric devices-to let you creat integrated designs that perform a range of complex tasks; includes key design curves, graphs, tables, and equations for designing a variety of components-geared five-bar mechanisms, internal, and external Geneva wheels, crank-and-rocker links, snap-action toggles, angular-motion and curvilinear-motion feeder mechanisms, slider cranks, ratchet wheels, and more; organizes all mechanisms and devices by application and principle of operation-to give you fast on-the-job access; Carefully compiled from major product-design design-engineering publications and from other authoritative sources, Mechanisms and Mechanical Devices Sourcebook is the most extensive, thoroughly researched ready reference of its kind. It's the place to turn first for the time-saving approaches that can get your design started off right... break you out of conceptual logjams... suggest more cost-efficient alternatives... or just fine-tune a good design to make it even better.

About the author (2001)

Neil Sclater began his career as an engineer in the military--aerospace industry and a Boston engineering consulting firm before changing his career path to writing and editing on electronics and electromechanical subjects. He was a staff editor for engineering publications in electronic design, instrumentation, and product engineering, including McGraw-Hill's PRODUCT ENGINEERING mgazine, before starting his own business as a consultant and contributing editor in technical communication.

For the next 25 years, Mr. Sclater served a diversified list of industrial clients by writing marketing studies, technical articles, brochures, and new product releases. During this period, he also directly served a wide list of publishers by writing hundreds of by-lined articles for many different magazines and newspapers on various topics in engineering and industrial marketing.

Mr. Sclater holds degrees from Brown University and Northeastern University, and he has completed gradute courses in industrial management. He is the author or co-author of seven books on engineering subjects: six of these were published by McGraw-Hill's Professional Book Group. He previously revised and edited the Second Edition of MECHANISMS AND MECHANICAL DEVICES SOURCEBOOK after the death of Mr. Chironis.

The late Nicholas P. Chironis developed the concept for MECHANISMS AND MECHANICAL DEVICES SOURCEBOOK, and was the author/editor of the First Edition. He was a mechanical engineer and consultant in industry before joining the staff of Product Engineering magazine, as its mechanical design editor. Later in his career, he was an editor for other McGraw-Hill engineering publications. He had previously been a mechanical engineer for International Business Machines and Mergenthaler Linotype Corporation, and he was an instructor in product design at the Cooper Union School of Engineering in New York City. Mr. Chironis earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees in mechanical engineering from Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY.
