The extensive guided tour covered all production steps involved, from mould making up to the finished components. In addition, the students were able to observe a furnace tap and the subsequent casting, which never ceases to impress even experienced employees.
Case studies are voluntary tasks that students and teams of students work on in addition to the lecture “Technology of Manufacturing Processes”. These tasks are developed in cooperation with companies from the industry. This enables mechanical engineering students to gain experience in industrial applications related to the topics studied in the first semester and to gain an initial insight into possible areas of their future professional field.
We would like to thank Römheld & Moelle Eisengießerei GmbH and especially Mr. Naas for their cooperation and support during the case study and the interesting excursion.
