Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The course is an introduction to the correct use of production technologies in relation to the industrial design sector. In particular, its aim is to give designers an in-depth knowledge of the processes for the standard production of complex form components (plastic material moulding, die-casting, sheet pressing, welding and mechanical assembly). The general aspects of the necessary resources (machinery, labour, equipment) and the operation performances (cycle times, production costs) are referred to for each process. After this, space is dedicated to the criteria of technical feasibility and the relative implications on product design (design for manufacture, design for assembly). The matters treated are exemplified in practical problems through analyses, and component and product re-design.

Risultati di apprendimento attesi

Students will:
- knowledge and understanding: know how to use production technologies in relation to the industrial design sector in a design sphere;
- making judgements: be able to assess the technical feasibility of a production process and the design implications;
- communication skills: can realise the product technical documents, useful for production.

Argomenti trattati


This module introduces the basic concepts for the mechanical design of machine systems and components.

Starting fro the basic concepts of the strength of materials and the theory of beams, the module will deals with the design criteria of notched parts, shafts, shaft/hub joints, springs, bearings.

The final part of the module is dedicated to bolted and welded joints and to snap-fit joints for plastic parts.

Fatigue design of metal parts is introduced.

The numerical solution of practical cases completes the subjects of the lectures.


This module presents a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of the most common manufacturing processes for metallic alloys, spanning from principles to applications and technology trends. Students will learn the key factors of manufacturing processes for different industrial products in metal and metallic alloys and will realize how process capabilities (rate, cost, quality) are determined by the material characteristics, process parameters, and machine designs.

In particular, the course will assist the designers in the process selection, since the beginning of the design process of industrial products.

Initially, the selection of processes starts with the definition of the project specifications and their relationship with the process variability (mainly as regards roughness and dimensional tolerances).

Subsequently, the relevant issues about the economic feasibility are introduced based on a production cost model that is very basic but useful to evaluate the contribution of different cost categories on the final one.

Once the technical and economic feasibility aspects that define the selection of processes have been defined, relevant manufacturing processes are presented, i.e. casting, sheet metal working, non-conventional processes (laser) and few notes of additive processes; with their own manufacturing best practices, design options, and product aesthetics.

The module concludes with a perspective on needs for future advancement of manufacturing processes and major opportunities.


There are no pre-requisites for attendance.

Modalità di valutazione


The exam consist of a written test with 3 exercises that cover the subjects of the course. The numerical solution of the exercises is requested.



The exam consists of three parts: the written exam (mandatory), the oral exam (facultative) and the evaluation of the team project (facultative). To obtain a positive final mark the student should pass the written exam with a grade greater than or equal to 18/30. Then the oral exam can be taken. The consequent mark is the average of the two grades. The final mark is obtained adding the extra-mark of the team project when carried out.
