095840 - ADVANCED MANUFACTURING PROCESSES
The objective of ADVANCED MANUFACTURING PROCESSES is to lead the students to completely "dominate" the main unconventional materials processing technologies, with special reference to material removal, but including also metal forming, welding, surface treatments and additive processing. The course starts from the classification of unconventional machining processes based on the elementary mechanisms and for each process presents the basic principles, the most relevant industrial solutions, and the main applications. Numerical and PC-based exercises, visits to laboratories, companies and trade fairs integrate the program.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
The principal achievements are the knowledge of unconventional and innovative methods of manufacturing, and the capability of designing the entire production route of an industrial component through the correct selection of different manufaturing processes.

Modalità di valutazione
The final exam will consist in a written 1-2 hours test, where the student will have to solve 2 numerical exercises and in a oral discussion of the main concepts regarding the topics of the course.
The final grade will depend on the performance during both written and oral examination.
Optionally, the students can develop a project during the semester which can yield up to 2/30 additional points.
