Course detail

Technology of Forming

FSI-HH2Acad. year: 2017/2018

The working of productions technical preparation,the usage of engeneering methods for working out the technical documentation of production of the formed parts. The interconection of corresponding knowledge from the science about material, the theory of forming and individual solution of problems of forming. The application of knowledge on both basic and nonconventional technologies of forming in machinery-cold and hot flat and solid forming.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The ability of the independent creative attitude when solving basic and applied forming technologies. The ability to analyze forming process, adaptability for given conditions of technological preparation of production of forming parts in practice.
