Learning outcomes

After completing the course the student should be able to

  • explain comprehensively the manufacture chain applied in the traditional industry,
  • describe different methods for: forming, cutting, welding, and unusual machining methods,
  • explain how limits of different machining processes are related to material properties,
  • describe different measurement methods, measurement tools and devices, and use form and position tolerance,
  • make simple calculations of force, needed power, cost, select appropriate tools and cutting data, and make simple structural design of pressing tool.


Plastic processing: Analysis of energy, power and force requirements for e.g. forging, pressing, bending, and thread and plate production.

Cutting processing: Analysis of cutting procedures, tool wear and life length, with an emphasis on lathing, cutting, drilling and grinding.

Welding: Arc and gas welding.

Production technical measurement methods: Measurement gear, gauges, jigs, measurement devices and modern measurement machines.

Unusual machining methods such as: FFF, spark machining EDM and EDWC, Electrochemical machining (ECM), laser and liquid jet cutting.


Lectures, lessons, seminars, laboratory work, project work and field trips.


The theory will be examined in form of seminars. Laboratory work and project work must also be completed and approved to pass the course.
