Topics: Manufacturing and Materials
This course covers metal forming and related manufacturing processes, emphasizing practical applications. From forged or P/M connecting rods to tailor-welded blank forming, metal parts are integral to the automotive industry. As a high value adding category of manufacturing, metal forming is increasingly important to the core competency of automobile manufacturers and suppliers. A thorough survey of metal forming processes and metal forming mechanics will be performed, including bulk deformation, sheet-metal, and powder metallurgy operations. Design considerations are fully integrated into the course and are presented with every process. A large number of real-world case studies are presented to the participants to emphasize course content.
Participants will receive a copy of the book "Manufacturing Engineering Technology," co-written by instructor Steven R. Schmid.
By attending this course, you will be able to:
This course is designed for engineers who are involved in metal forming and other related manufacturing processes.
Participants should have an undergraduate engineering degree.
