Course abstract

Rational methods of using carpentry-type woodworking machines and their use for the performance of various mechanical processing processes, which are acquired by researching the available woodworking equipment and processing wood materials on them.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

Knowledge - theoretical knowledge and understanding of the production of standard wooden products on item type equipment. (at the end of the semester, upon receiving the assignment, assess whether the student knows the appropriate equipment and is able to make a rational decision, based on knowledge)

Skills - independently works with carpentry type woodworking machines, which install and use safe work methods (at the end of the semester, demonstrating their skills available for woodworking equipment)

Competence - is able to independently use the knowledge of equipment and manufacturing parts specifications to make the right decision when processing the selection process. (at the end of the semester, demonstrating one's skills available for woodworking equipment in the context of receiving assignments. Competences determine what students are able to make a rational decision without the teacher's involvement)

Course Content(Calendar)

1 Sawing equipment, constructions, operation, setting, copying, working methods and examples, knowing the equipment. (6h)
2 Milling equipment, constructions, operation, setting, copying, working methods and examples, knowing the equipment. (6h)
3 Pressing equipment, constructions, operation, setting, copying, working methods and examples, learning about the equipment. (4 h)
4 Drilling rigs, design, operation, setup, copying, techniques and examples for exploring rigs. (4 h)
5 Hand tools, design, operation, setup, copying, techniques and examples for learning about equipment. (6h)
6 Practical operation of equipment, strengthening skills and safe working methods when processing wood materials (54h)

Requirements for awarding credit points

At the end of the semester, each student must present the skills individually, showing their ability to use the available woodworking equipment. The teacher issues a task and observes how the student chooses a machine tool, sets it up, applies work methods and performs the processing process itself. Students receive a negative grade if they are unable to independently perform the woodworking.

Description of the organization and tasks of students’ independent work

Permanent work takes place under the guidance of the lecturer, according to the course plan.

Criteria for Evaluating Learning Outcomes

Evaluates the student's ability to work independently on equipment.
