Course detail

Conventional Machine Tools and Forming Machines

FSI-GK0Acad. year: 2017/2018

This subject completes and increases knowledge about design of production machines for those students, who would like to deal in development and design of production machines after finishing their study.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students taking part in this course obtain knowledge about the basic assembly groups in design of production machines


The expected knowledge is from the field of machine parts and machine mechanisms as well as from the field of basic principles for building of production machines. The student should be orientated in the field of metal cutting technology as well as in the field of volume and planar forming technology. The student must know physical principles of measuring and evaluation of measured quantities.
