Course Description

260-Introduction to Manufacturing Methods for Metals Part 1-Casting and Forging Methods

Many engineers work in areas related to product design. In product design it is very important to understand the manufacturability of parts. The cost of a part is greatly influenced by the method of production, so engineers need to have a good knowledge of the available methods. Engineers need to do product design so that the product will function properly, but they also need to design the part for the particular manufacturing method utilized. In other words, the engineer should design the part with a specific manufacturing process in mind.

This course provides a general overview of manufacturing processes related to metals. Focus is placed on comparing the advantages and disadvantages of different methods to help engineers determine which method to use for a specific product. The manufacturing methods covered in part 1 of this course are casting and forging. No previous knowledge of manufacturing methods is required for this course.

This is an excellent, well written introduction to metal casting and forging. Linked videos clearly illustrate the different manufacturing processes and mold designs, making them much easier to grasp. Although the course material stands well on its own, and enables all exam questions to be answered, I highly recommend that students view all the videos for a more complete understanding of metal casting and forging.

An excellent summary course. I was already familiar with the basic content but the Author did a nice job of clarifying some points and "filling in some gaps"
