Learning outcomes

Students know the industrially used machine tools and flexible manufacturing facilities. The related information technologies are as familiar to them as the design principles of machines and equipment. The students can:

• Application-specific criteria of modern
Manufacturing facilities to explain
• Advantages and disadvantages of different
Machine tool types to analyze and evaluate
• Basic calculations in mechanics and
Drives of machine tools to perform
• methods for selection and acceptance of
Manufacturing facilities to specify
• criteria for static and dynamic positioning
explained by CNC machines
• perform basic work with programming systems
