Manufacturing of raw materials


Theory of cutting

Cutting tools

Optimization of cutting conditions

High speed machining


Shaping of plastics and composites


Production management




Presentation of the processes of shaping of crudes / mechanical parts by plastic deformation, with technologies and associated calculations. The processes discussed are mainly forging, stamping, folding and stamping.


Presentation of Additive Manufacturing processes and intervention of specialized industrialists

Method of implementing a 3D printing process.


The student will be able to :

-     Define the influencing parameter on cutting material,

optimize a machining operation in HSM.

 -    Define a Production Management Approach.

 -    Design parts by molding.

 -    Define the advantages and limitations of additive manufacturing processes.

 -    Design and produce plastic parts using an additive manufacturing process.

 -    Know the different ways to get rough part and their costs and performance, define a range of rough part and design the necessary tools.

Needed prerequisite
