Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course is divided into five thematic sections:

  • CNC machining, maching economics and quality control
  • Design and analysis of manufacturing machines
  • Advanced subjects for research-based studies
  • Laboratory exercises
  • Study visits to companies

Key concepts in the course are

  • CNC machining
  • Machining economics and productivity
  • Quality control and measurement techniques
  • Machine tool design and machine dynamics
  • Advanced machining processes
  • Additive manufacturing

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student should be able to:

  • analyse conventional (cutting) machining processes and selected advanced machining processes, regarding their applicability and technical adequacy in a given manufacturing environment
  • interpret tolerances in engineering drawings and use this understanding to plan and carry out measurements of given engineering components
  • measure and analyse the dynamic characteristics of the manufacturing system, i.e machine tools, cutting tools, workpiece, fixturing and cutting process, and their relation to quality and productivity
  • analyse advanced additive manufacturing processes nd their potential for new opportunities
  • do qualified economic calculations for conventionl machining processes, given specific preconditions for material, tools and productivity
  • independently explore, review, document and present research based tasks on advanced concepts in manufacturing technology
