Konstruktionsprojekt - Produktion (O)
level of course unit
Learning outcomes of course unit
The students are able to:
• Know the fundamentals of the design process and apply them.
• Evaluate and analyze the design methods.
• Differentiate machines and plants.
• Construct plants also as a union of machine groups under consideration of additional requirements like e.g. conveyor systems and conveying aids.
• The special features of a plant take into account the interaction of components, service and assembly.
• Plan, define and design an entire plant and plant components or machine groups. Consider and document the respective work step (e.g. requirement determination, concept development, evaluation of solutions, design).
• Develop a plant in a structured manner and in accordance with standards and norms, taking safety into account.
• Consider and evaluate the possibility of variants as well as set-ups and conversions, taking into account production, assembly and costs.
• Create the complete documentation for the entire design in interaction (e.g. requirement specification, functional analysis, requirements specification, parts lists, technical drawing, assembly instructions, documentation).
prerequisites and co-requisites
• Practical design and calculation exercises using practical examples, in particular for the design of connecting elements, conveyor systems, machine components as well as axles, shafts and bearings; connections and couplings and gears. For the interaction, particular emphasis should be placed on elements for supporting, carrying machine components, torque transmission and conveying:
• Types, functions and design rules as well as calculation bases for axes, shafts, bearings and springs.
• Elements for sealing machine components
• All elements which are also relevant for connections and conveyor technology:
• Clutches and brakes: Design, functions, mode of operation and calculation bases of selected clutch and brake types
• Belt drives: Design principles and calculation bases for flat and V-belt drives and timing belt drives
• Gear drives: Gear types and design, gearing law, design and calculation bases for straight, helical, bevel and helical gears
