Processing Technology of Plastics and Composites
- Department of Manufacturing Technology
Basic plastics and composites manufacturing techniques will be introduced as well as a problem of jointing and recycling. Within this course students will visit tool shop, plastics injection plant and company producing composite parts. In laboratories students will manufacture a composite part, make tests of mechanical properties, they will try jointing, machining and rearing of composite parts.
No absence. Homework.
