Schaeffler's Technical Pocket Guide is a useful technical reference book for mechanical engineers, technicians, apprentices and students across numerous technical and scientific disciplines. Practical and easy to use, the Guide is intended as an educational tool that becomes a trusted companion for many people in their day-to-day work.

The Technical Pocket Guide covers a variety of technical subjects including:

  • Units of measurement

Schaeffler's user-friendly Guide is intended to bridge the gap between a comprehensive textbook and purely tabular data. The Contents section is displayed in a logical manner and even complex information is explained clearly and concisely. The book comprises 14 colour-coded chapters for easy navigation. There are numerous diagrams and drawings, well-structured texts, tables and formulae, enabling readers to quickly find what is required.

Dr Steve Lacey, Engineering Manager at Schaeffler UK, comments: "The Technical Pocket Guide is the perfect desktop companion and aide memoire for anyone involved in engineering, from students and apprentices at the beginning of their careers, right through to experienced mechanical engineers, chief designers and technical directors."

The Guide had specialist support from Prof Dr-Ing Harald Meerkamm, former head of the Chair for Engineering Design at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. His technical and teaching experience enabled the entire content of the Guide to be carefully revised and updated.

Schaeffler also offers the Technical Pocket Guide as a software app, providing a mobile reference guide. In addition to the content of the printed version, the app also includes useful 'search' and 'bookmark' functions, as well as information about Schaeffler. A sharing function enables specific text passages to be shared via email, Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

Schaeffler's Technical Pocket Guide is available free of charge in English, German and Chinese. Follow the link to order a copy of the Technical Pocket Guide, or follow the links for the Android app and iOS app.
