Course detail

Technology of Forming

FP-BttPAcad. year: 2018/2019

The overal outlook basis of machinery technologies in cold metal forming and in hot metal forming. It contains physical and metalurgical basis of presented technologies. Basis chapters are; the basis laws of plastic deformation, the basis forming operations when producing metallurgical raw products, the forming in machinery-flat (cutting, bending, drawing of iron, extrusion and hamer forging and drop forging).

Learning outcomes of the course unit

To obtain the outlook of machinery technologies, foundry work, forming and welding and parting of materials. The working of technological processes, the masteringf of the calculation of basic parametres with these technologies.


Knowledge of technological courses I. and II. year of study.
