This subject deals with manufacturing systems and automated production systems. An overview of modern manufacturing systems and techniques used in manufacturing facilities is presented. The numerical control of machines is introduced, the design of (computer) Numerical Control (CNC) machine tools, such as turning and machining centers, is explained and fundamentals of CNC programming are discussed. Components related to automated production systems, i.e. industrial robots, as well as measurements and inspection principles are investigated. Basic concepts of manufacturing by means of additive techniques (formerly known as Rapid Prototyping) will be analyzed. The subject will also briefly examine unconventional machining such as Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM), electrochemical machining, chemical milling, ultrasound machining, electron beam machining and laser processing. Moreover, in order to have a comprehensive view of a manufacturing system, students will be guided to address some problems of industrial production management, mainly concerning medium-term programming and scheduling, through presentation of formal models from which the more widespread industrial procedures are derived.

Modalità di esame: Prova orale obbligatoria;
The aim of the final exam is to verify the student’s knowledge on modern integrated manufacturing systems. The final exam is basically an oral exam. The exam consists of 5 (five) open questions and covers all the material that was presented during lectures and seminars. Theoretical questions may include the request for drawing/sketches or solving simple problems. The exam starts with 1 (one) open question, that requires a written answer, about management of production systems topics; this first part of the oral exam accounts for 7/30. The second part of the exam consist of 4 (four) open questions about all the other topics; this second part of the exam accounts for 23/30. The final score of the exam is given by the sum of the scores obtained in each of the two parts.
