About this Unit
The aim of this unit is to provide an introduction into the fundamentals of manufacturing operations, automation and control technologies including numerical control and industrial robotics. In addition, material handling and identification technologies will be discussed as well as manufacturing systems. The latter will examine single-station manufacturing cells, manual assembly lines, automated production and assembly lines as well as flexible manufacturing systems. Mechanical behaviour of common materials used in manufacturing will be studied, and their suitability for various manufacturing processes including metal cutting, sheet-metal forming, bulk deformation and abrasion. Other processes such as rapid prototyping and rapid tooling will also be included.
