The module discusses the most important manufacturing processes and technologies driving Industry 4.0, including both traditional and advanced manufacturing. The course will cover a wide variety of modern forming, shaping and joining techniques. Further, it will introduce advanced technology such as non-conventional machining, micromanufacturing and additive manufacturing.
The module will reveal the fundamental link between materials properties and processing, and will thus provide a basis for the discussion of product design considerations from the viewpoint of manufacturing processes.
