Module Code - Title: PT4112 - MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY 2 Year Last Offered: 2017/8 Hours Per Week: Grading Type: N Prerequisite Modules: PT4111 Rationale and Purpose of the Module: To introduce the student to a further range of manufacturing and fabrication processes and the relationship between materials and processes. To emphasise the importance of accuracy and precision. Syllabus: Engineering measurement. Length standards. Standard measuring temperature. Process Capability. Quality and Accuracy. Machining - further consideration of sawing, turning, milling, drilling. Fundamental treatment of the shear plane - relation between the rake angle and the shear plane and implications for power requirements. Workholding - methods of clamping, magnetic workholding, chucks and collets. Welding techniques including : manual metal arc, oxy-acetylene, MAGS and TAGS welding. Brazing, soldering and adhesive bonding. Mechanical joining. Joint design. Introduction to engineering materials and their properties. Learning Outcomes: Cognitive (Knowledge, Understanding, Application, Analysis, Evaluation, Synthesis) 1. Exhibit a basic knowledge and experience of the methods employed in the processing and fabrication of common engineering materials. 2.
