Jorge Joaquim Pamies Teixeira
The course aims at providing the students with fundamental knowledge on machining (cutting metals and non metals) and experimental analysis techniques [First Module ] and on blanking, drawing and other deformation tecnologies [Second Module].
Students are expected to acquire scientific and technical knowledge on the physical mechanisms of cutting technologies, both in terms of conventional cutting and High Speed Cutting, relating the different phenomena (vibrations, chattering, tool wear, etc). Additionally, it is also expected that they get hold of the new trends and the state of art of cutting technologies as well as new analysis tools (e.g. simulation).
In the second module, dedicated to blanking and forming technologies, it also expected that the students acquire the necessary knowledge as to be able to develop new tools and new processes. The inclusion of the state of art software tools for simulation and design are explained and used.
- Process planning for machining: selection of cutting parameters, tools and fixtures.
- Optimization of cutting operations following criteria of minimum cost and maximum production.
-Experimental analyisi of cutting
- Blanking and Drawing tool design (simple and progressive)
- Team work in laboratory environment
- Develop critical thinking
- Develop technical written skills
It is required to have completed the course Tecnologias e Processos Mecânicos
