Course specification

Course is active from 01.10.2007..

The objective of the course is to introduce the student to the fundamentals of metal casting technology.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: name and describe basic casting processes; analyze given part and in accordance with its geometry, quantity, application conditions, required mechanical properties, and requested tolerances, select adequate casting process; name and describe basic properties, applications, and production process of cast irons; design tools and patterns for parts of simple geometries; make a hand made sand casting molds; identify potential ways to improve manufacturability of cast components.
Introduction to foundry technology. Sand casting. Composition, properties, and preparation of foundry mold mixtures. Shell molding. Gravity die casting. High pressure die casting. Investment casting. Centrifugal casting. Gray cast iron. Ductile cast iron. Malleable iron. Fundamentals of gating and risering of castings. Latest trends in the foundry industry.
Teaching is held interactively as lectures and laboratory practice. During lectures, the theoretical part of the teaching content is presented and supplemented by characteristic practical examples for better understanding. During lectures, discussion between students is frequently initiated in order to increase motivation, expand student understanding, broaden student perspectives and clarify potential ambiguities. During laboratory practice, the obtained knowledge is practically applied on the available laboratory equipment. Apart from lectures and practice, consultations are held regularly.
