Description Automated manufacturing is about increasing the capacity of productivity through a range of integrated technologies so that manufacturing operations can run simultaneously. Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of manufacturing operations, automation, and control technologies, including numerical control and industrial robotics. This subject aims to deepen the understanding of the material selection process and enables students to identify appropriate manufacturing processes in a product manufacturing design. Various manufacturing processes such as material removal, bulk deformation, sheet-metal forming, and non-traditional processes will be examined. Through problem-solving activities, students will enhance their manufacturing engineering skills in the computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) areas and acquire the skills to machine their CAD models on a computer numerical control (CNC) machine.
