The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the principles of production technologies in the field of metallurgical primary production, foundry, forming processes and advanced secondary metalworking. Detailed focus is aimed at individual stages of ferrous and non-ferrous metals production, from the production of input semi-finished products to the stage of precision machining using modern technologies.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Student will become familiar with principles of metallurgical and following technologies, he will be able to describe raw materials and processes of their preparation, fundamentals of physical and chemical processes of single technologies, production facilities, final products assortment, its properties and usage.
