This part of a trilingual edition of the CIRP Dictionary of Production Engineering was compiled under the auspices of the International Institution of Production Engineering Research (CIRP) headquartered in Paris.
Volume I contains about 2650 terms for metal forming. They include: General terms of metal forming; Hot and die forging; Cold and warm forging and sheet metal working.
Precise definitions are provided for nearly all terms, illustrations are included where needed. In addition, reference is made to national and international standards. Alphabetical indices for each of the three languages provide easy access to the terms.
CIRP - The International Academy for Production Engineering - is the world leading organization in production engineering research and is at the forefront of design, optimization, control and management of processes, machines and systems.The Academy has restricted membership based on demonstrated excellence in research and has some 600 academic and industrial members from 50 industrialized countries.
The Vision of CIRP is to promote research and development among its members from Academia and Industry to contribute to the global economic growth and well being of society
The Mission of CIRP is to develop the highest level international network of eminent Researchers and Industrialists for the purpose of marshalling their knowledge and insights.
CIRP was founded in 1951 with the aim to address scientifically, through international co-operation, issues related to modern production science and technology. The International Academy for Production Engineering takes its abbreviated name from the French acronym of College International pour la Recherche en Productique (CIRP).
