Further Information


The overall objective of the lecture is to expand the previous knowledge of manufacturing technologies through scientific approaches, methods and models. Upon successful completion of this course, students will know and understand the functional principles of the relevant manufacturing technologies as well as the process parameters and the most important effects on the quality, tool wear and machining time of the component.

Furthermore, the students know and understand the wear mechanisms of the tools and the resulting errors.
The students are also able to assess manufacturing processes, machine tools and measuring methods with regard to workpiece properties and to evaluate the effects of parameter changes on thermo-mechanical loads, wear behaviour and risks. They are also able to analyze, optimize and question established manufacturing processes from a scientific point of view.
