The course Manufacturing systems focuses on learning to select the right production processes for products and parts of products from the design and production perspective.
Learning objectives, afterwards the student can (in the role of designer):
Technical Product Definition (Technical Drawing)
- explain how the processes are influenced by:material choice of the product (part);
- quality requirements of the product (part);
- geometric features of the product (part);
- product (part) quantities to be produced;
- technical limits of production equipment and tools;
- select a suitable production process for a given (part of a )product. (in the role of production engineer)
- describe and explain the complete production cycle of a product;
- translate the workpiece drawing of a machined part into a work preparation;
- explain what the effect is on the complete production cycle of a (part of a) product caused by:
- quality of processes and testing;
- engineering metrology;
As a result of the course Technical Drawing a student can:
- sketch and interpret a technical drawing;
- analyze a technical drawing and sketch regarding the functional performance of the various components;
- apply the technical drawing rules, usual in mechanical engineering;
- use the 3D CAD system SolidWorks;
- think better in spatial representations;
- identify several aspects of normalization;
- apply several design aspects of machine elements regarding the production method used.
This is a part of Module 1 of the Bachelor Mechanical Engineering. See here for the compete description of this semester.|
Materials, casting, bulk deformation, sheet metal forming, machining, plastic processing, work preparation, quality, automation, joining and process selection. The course consists of 2 hearing lectures, 6 tutorials, a presentation session related to an excursion to a manufacturing facility. The subjects fit closely to the practicals in the workshop (4 times half a day). The practicals are relevant to the theory and for building the prototype of the project. Building the prototype will be done in 3 times half a day.
This course consists of 7 times half a day tutorials and 5 hearing lectures to familiarize the student withe the language of mechanical engineering. Students learn to sketch by hand and to make drawings with Solidworks.
