Course detail

Technology (Forming, Machining)

FSI-WTEAcad. year: 2019/2020

The course deals with the following topics: Introduction to shanking technology. Physical - metallurgical basic of shanking. Production and choice of metallurgical semi-products. Production of pressings by surface shanking, shearing, bending and drawing. Production of pressings by volume shanking. Smith and drop forging. Pushing-through. Special methods of shanking - wiew. Basic conception of shanking technology, side-effects of cutting suit, rationalization and economy of shanking, materials for cutting equipment, basics of machine tool construction. Methods of shanking (turning, milling, drilling, boring operation, stacking, grinding and finishing methods). Special methods of shanking.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will be able to chose and apply shanking technologies, and will have an overview of physical principles and side-effects of the forming and machining process. They will be made familiar with the approaches to basic methods and ways of shanking and machining. The course will enable them to combine different engineering technologies. This knowledge is necessary to take into account technical as well as economical aspects.


The course is a follow-up to the knowledge acquired in the field of physics of solids, i.e. deformation behaviour of materials, connection among structure, properties of metallic and non-metallic materials.
