Summary

The course is aimed at expanding knowledge on the methods of casting using modern and innovative methods. It deals with the classification of different methods according to the method of casting and the type of form. The intention is to acquaint students with all the technology of casting, including procedures that can not be seen in the Czech Republic, including the procedures to be used on a limited basis, or for special purposes.
