Course Description:
Course description The course is aimed at developing the knowledge of production methods typical of mechanical industry. Description is than given of plastic deformation processes of metals, welding processes, foundry techniques and material removal processes, analyzing the relationships among them and the product requirements (i. e. performances and costs). Expected Learning Outcomes The knowledge of production processes utilized by the mechanical industry is necessary as the student must be capable of : - choosing process technologies, - choosing and, if required, collaborating in the design of production means; - preparing the manufacturing cycle of the part. At the end of the course the student must: - know and apply the relationships between materials and processes; - know and apply manufacturing techniques; - know and apply basic performances of production means (machines, tools/moulds/dies, fixtures and measurement/testing instruments); - know and apply process variables and their interactions with part requirements (quality, tolerances, surface roughness etc.) - know and apply the right actions in order to minimize the part cost; - know and apply the regulations concerning the industrial safety. As to judgement independence and communication cleverness, the student must: - write technical reports, also in English, with a high level of professionalism - evaluate production problems and find quickly their solutions as he knows the interactions among the various players in the production process and he has a sufficient experience in the evaluation of the magnitude order of involved variables; - get easily into touch with people, using English too.
