This introductory course investigates the four major categories of traditional manufacturing processes as well as newly developed non-traditional techniques. This course focuses on understanding the concepts of past and current manufacturing processes. Students will learn how typical industrial piece parts and assemblies are manufactured. Topics focus on processes and related theory for the traditional manufacturing processes of material removal, metal forming, joining, casting and molding, as well as more recently developed processes such as powder metallurgy, rapid prototyping, EDM, chemical machining, water jet, LASER and plasma cutting.
