Basic knowledge about manufacturing processes for metals.
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
Conventional technologies for metals are studied. In order to stimulate student’s knowledge, the interaction between material and tools is always highlighted. The student is able to analyse and evaluate any manufacturing process with a proper technical language.
APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
Thanks to the interaction between frontal lessons and laboratory activities, the student is stimulated to have an own technical profile. He will be able to manage technologies with technical language and sketch capabilities.
The student develops own skills and capabilities in describing transformation processes by taking example from the frontal lessons.
Students are invited to describe technologies in a proper technical way and with an adequate technical speech.
Learning skills are continuously improved thanks to the applied methodology for technology description. This methodology can be translated to any other technological process. Capabilities increase because of the number of described technologies and their correlation. Examples from the industrial world and laboratory experiments crystallize the knowledge about new technologies.
Materials structure and properties: structure of metals, crystals, thermal stresses, solid solution, material properties, mechanical behavior, testing, and manufacturing properties of materials, metal alloys: structure and strengthening by heat treatment
Manufacturing of metals: fundamental of metal-casting, metal-casting processes and equipment, bulk forming (rolling, forging, extrusion and drawing), sheet-metal forming, sintering, fundamentals of machining, cutting-tools, machining processes (turning, drilling, milling).
Joining processes and advanced machining: fusion-welding, solid-state welding, adhesive-bonding, fastening, rapid-prototyping processes and operations, additive manufacturing.
Laboratory lessons: mechanical tests, surface engineering, hardness of metals, microscopy.
