Course is focused on classifying and summary unchip machining methods and their development in our country and the world. The course includes Electro Discharge Machining, Electro Chemical Machining,
chemical machining, Ultrasonic Machining, Laser Beam Machining, Plasma Beam
Machining, Electron Beam Machining, Water Jet Machining, Abrasive Water Jet
Machining, etc.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Teaching this course builds on existing courses taught at the Department of machining and assembly (Fundamentals of Engineering Technology II, Technology II, Machining, CAD / CAM systems in machining, Machining Theory, Tools, Machine tools, etc.), Faculty of Mechanical Engineering VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava. In this course students apply their existing advanced technology used in machining. The course then builds on the knowledge gained by studying technological subjects and develop in depth knowledge of the high-tech machining .
