The module aims at providing the basic knowledge of the manufacturing processes for metal sheet parts and plastic components. Starting from the 3D CAD model of the part, all the steps that lead to the design and fabrication of production tooling are analysed by a Concurrent Engineering approach integrating modern CAD/CAM/CAE techniques.

Starting from the 3D CAD model of the part, all the steps that lead to the design and fabrication of production tooling are analysed by a Concurrent Engineering approach integrating modern CAD/CAM/CAE techniques.
The student is expected to learn a basics knowledge of main industrial processes for metal sheet parts and plastic components manufacturing. The application of time compression techniques in product/process design. The ability to design, by means of a CAD/CAM software, a simple mold/die for the fabrication of a metal sheet part and an injection molding product.

Modalità di esame: Prova scritta (in aula); Elaborato progettuale in gruppo;
Exam: Written test; Group project;
The aim of the final exam is to verify the student’s knowledge about manufacturing processes of car body components. The final exam is composed of two parts: - a written exam about the topics covered during the lectures; - a discussion with evaluation of the technical report of the training. The written exam consists of five or six open questions and it is closed books and closed slides or notes. The duration of the written exam is about 2 hours. The written exam is aimed at the evaluation of student's knowledge about: 1) Polymers and their main properties; 2) Injection moulding process and design principles; 3) Injection moulding machine and its working cycle; 4) Manufacturing processes for sheet metal parts; 5) Concepts of lightweight design and innovative technologies/materials. The technical report about the project that was developed in group during the training must be delivered at least a week before the beginning of the exam session. The technical report is aimed at the evaluation of student expertise through team working in the design and optimization of the injection moulding process for the production of an automotive component. The written exam contributes to the definition of the final grade for a maximum of 24 points out of 30. The grade is integrated by the evaluation of the technical report for a maximum of 6 additional points. In case of maximum grade (30 over 30), the honor is attributed at the discretion of the professor.
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
Modalità di esame: Prova scritta su carta con videosorveglianza dei docenti; Prova scritta tramite PC con l'utilizzo della piattaforma di ateneo; Elaborato progettuale in gruppo;

The aim of the final exam is to verify the student’s knowledge about manufacturing processes of car body components. The final exam is composed of two parts: - a written exam about the topics covered during the lectures; - the evaluation of the technical report of the training. The written exam will be administrated using the Proctoring platform of Portale della Didattica. The exam consists of 8 multiple-choice questions and 8 open questions and it is closed books and closed slides or notes. The multiple-choice questions are composed of three alternatives and only one right answer. A maximum of 8 points are assigned for the multiple-choice questions and no penalization (negative points) is attributed for a missing or wrong answer. The duration of the written exam is about 1and a half hours. In case of technical issues with the Proctoring platform, the exam will be repeated with written open questions to be answered in a private Virtual Classroom under the supervision of the professor. The written exam is aimed at the evaluation of student's knowledge about: 1) Polymers and their main properties; 2) Injection moulding process and design principles; 3) Injection moulding machine and its working cycle; 4) Manufacturing processes for sheet metal parts; 5) Concepts of lightweight design and innovative technologies/materials.
