Manufacturing Processes Series (13 Parts)

Synopsis
A series of thirteen training DVDs produced in conjunction with Monash University, Australia, government agencies and industrial manufacturers. Each focuses on a particular core industrial process and will be useful for any organisation with training responsibilities in a wide range of industrial processes including: metal machining, casting, composite materials production, plastics forming, welding and non-destructive testing. They are ideal for university engineering courses and technical colleges, trade and technician courses and on the job training in industry.

Each DVD is presented as two discs.
Disc 1: DVD format. Compatible with most DVD players and PC/MAC systems.
Disc 2: Containing additional features - an Mpeg video presentation, a full transcript of the video in pdf format, and charts and graphs in Powerpoint (Powerpoint viewer included).
