Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Subject aims - the student will be able to characterize the systematization of pig iron, steel, cast iron and non-ferrous metals - the student will be able to define the basic input raw materials for the production of pig iron, cast iron and non-ferrous metals - the student will know the basic technological and metallurgical processes of the production of pig iron, cast iron and non-ferrous metals - the student will be able to define the basic input raw materials for the preparation of sand mixture, the basic technologies for mould making and cores, the ways of casting, and the principles of casting processes.

Teaching methods



Abstract The subject focuses on theoretical and practical aspects connected with the systematization of the production of pig iron, cast iron and non-ferrous metals. Special attention is paid to technological and metallurgical connections when producing separate materials. The principles of technologies for the production of sand mixtures, mould making, casting, including the principles of the technology of casting processes are presented here.
