Course detail

Technology III

FSI-6T3Acad. year: 2017/2018

The subject "Technology III" immediately follows the course "Technology II" and it is divided into two areas.
The first part of the subject contains all necessary information of the basic technologies acquired in the course "Technology II" and it is extended to the area of the steel production, the plastic behaviour of the metals and of the other types of conventional and unconventional forming technologies which are used in the engineering production. These are namely the methods which are used for the processing of the sheet metal, tubes and profiles.
The second part relates to the handling in the engineering plants. The students are acquainted with the flow of the material into the plant, inter- and intra-object manipulation in the foundries, forges, stamping shops, welding shops, machining shops, assembly shops etc., furthermore with the designing warehouse management, logistics, handling of waste and finished products, handling modern trends and management and economics of MM. Furthermore, the students are acquainted with the manipulation equipments, gases, liquids and bulk material.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The lectures and seminars will enable students to acquire knowledge of all kinds of so-called conventional and unconventional technologies, which are used in engineering plants for processing of sheets, pipes and profiles with using the sheet metal forming and solid forming carried out under cold and hot. They will get acquainted with the calculate methodology of the energo-power parameters and other important parameters of the forming processes, too.
The students will acquire the knowledge of the theoretical foundations of designing, carrying out the pre-project analysis, procedures and principles of design of MM and manipulating devices for between-object, internal-object and interoperable manipulation. Students will acquire necessary the skills in processing this project. Students will acquire necessary the skills of the designer in this project. They will learn to use the computer technology in designing of the handling systems, too.


The basic knowledge of the manufacturing technology, of the used manufacturing machines and equipments and of the knowledge of the manufacture mechanization.

The aim of the first part of the course is to acquaint students with the technologies of the metallurgical production and the modern technology (conventional and unconventional), which refine and supplement of the overview of the basic technologies lectured in the subjects "Technology I and II."
The aim of the second area is to give to students a comprehensive set of information regarding of the equipments for the handling of materials, the principles of their activities, technical-economic parameters and operational characteristics. The adoption of the above information will enable to students the choice of the handling equipments at the technological processes and the designing of the material handling systems.

This subject is included as compulsory-optional at 3rd year of the general bachelor's degree. His choice is recommended if the student intends to elect Study M-SLE, M-STG or M-STM.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Attendance in lectures is recommended.
Attendance in exercises is compulsory. The attendance to the seminar is regularly checked and the participation in the lesson is recorded. The missed lesson is possible to replace with another study group in the same week. In case, that the lesson does not possible to replace, the student will elaborate the complemental task.
