Course detail

Production Machines

FSI-HVSAcad. year: 2017/2018

The course deals with the following topics: Types of machines for metal forming and for machining. It describes the machine parts and their basic elements, function of machines, possibilities of machines for technological using for machining and metal forming processes. Also dealt with is the evaluation of machining and forming machines as well as the technical and performance parameters and the usability of machines.
