Manufacturing Technology I
FSI-2VT-AAcad. year: 2017/2018
The course familiarizes students with the fundamentals of engineering technology and enables them to test practically individually selected operations.
a) technology of presswork of sheet metal with practical application of operations of shearing, punching and bending on given components.
b) technology of bulk forming with a view to free forging of material under heat using the operations of hot drawing, flattening and bending on given components.
c) technology of gas welding, inclusive of mastering the fundamentals and manipulation with welding torch.
d) technology of surface treatment with a view to corrosion prevention.
e) technology of casting oriented to the fabrication of elementary mould and complicated mould with complicated parting plane.
