Goals: acquiring methodology for planning forming technologies for manufacturing final metallurgical products with target properties, while considering forming properties of the material, operational characteristics of machines and equipment and conducting material through such processes. Students acquire knowledge about different possibilities of forming technologies in view of quality assurance and economicity of the process used as well as selection options of forming processes and acquire complex knowledge for planning the whole technological process, i.e. integration of individual elements of the process chain into a whole. Topics include: correlation between direction of the work piece movement and movement of the forming tool, deformation zone and thermo-mechanical control of material flow, thermo-mechanical impacts on forming properties in hot or cold processing, forming technology architecture, characteristics of production equipment and tools, kinetics of thermo-mechanically initiated metallurgical processes, control of target formed microstructure and shape, dimension and tolerance of the product. Information communication technologies for technology control.
