7.1 Introduction

From automobiles to computers, almost all manufactured objects contain metal or alloy parts that have been worked or machined in some fashion during manufacture. They may have been plated or polished as a final processing step, but intermediate steps involve drawing, rolling, cutting, or some other metalworking process.
