Aspects of Materials Handling

K C Arora (Author) Vikas V Shinde (Author)
"Aspects of Materials Handling" aims at making undergraduate and postgraduate students of mechanical and production engineering aware of materials handling equipment and its related aspects. This book has been written in a such a way that even the industrial persons involved in the handling of any type of equipment will definitely get help from this book. Although material handling is very vast and versatile area of study; as far as possible, we have tried to cover all the areas of material handling. Every effort has been made to explain the basics in simple words and through representative sketches wherever deemed fit, We have also tried to give our beloved students updated knowledge of current trends in material handling such as robotics, automated guided vehicles etc.

This book gives the impression that it is divided in few sections but it is not. Major portion of this book covers three most important handling equipments viz cranes, conveyors and trucks. It also covers auxiliary equipments such as storage devices, cableways, straddle carriers, mobile lifting frames etc. This book also covers important aspects such as design, maintenance and principles of material handling apart from giving an idea how plant layout and its design affect the material handling.
