Construction of Production Machines II
FSI-G3SAcad. year: 2017/2018
This course complements and extends the knowledge of Construction of Production Machines I for machining difficult and non-metallic materials. These machine tools operate on different physical principles. We are talking about machining stone, carbon materials or wood. It will also be shown methods for rapid prototyping, using additive manufacturing methods. It mentioned the issue of Industry 4.0 with practical examples.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students taking part in this course obtain basic knowledge on mechatronics of machine tools and forming machines; moreover, they obtain basic knowledge on woodworking machines.
The expected knowledge is from the field of machine parts and machine mechanisms as well as from the field of basic principles of production machines construction. The student should be orientated in the field of chip machining technology.
