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):
Afterwards the student can (in the role of production engineer):
- 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.
- 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;
This is a part of module 1, ME 1 Design and Manufacturing of the Bachelor Mechanical Engineering. See here for the compete description of the module.|
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 can only be taken by ME students.
