This seminar covers theory and practical applications of DFM problems, including:
Manufacturing processes, such as casting, welding, extrusion, forging, powder materials processing, plastic injection molding, sheet metal forming, and other processes.
Materials selection, like ferrous and non-ferrous alloys, ceramics, composites, and polymers.
Lecture content and active learning exercises are based on relevant experience and highlights from academic materials for manufacturing engineering courses.
Attendees will be able to understand theory and perform calculations necessary to make decisions in the realm of materials and manufacturing processing.
