Entry requirements

In order to meet the general entry requirements for first cycle studies you must have successfully completed upper secondary education and documented skills in English language + Swedish upper secondary school courses Physics 2, Chemistry 1, Mathematics 3c (specifik entry A8). Or: Swedish upper secondary school courses Physics B, Chemistry A, Mathematics D (specifik entry 8)

More information about English language requirements


The selection is based on final school grades or Swedish Scholastic Aptitude Test.

Course Aim

After completed course the student should be able to:

  • Account for and understand the behaviour of metals at plastic deformation , regarding material parameters as well as process parameters.
  • Account for differences between hot and cold deformation, particularly as regards rolling
  • Separate the behaviour of the metal at full-plastic working methods from the behaviour at partly plastic working methods
  • Understand the difficulties and possibilities of the processes as regards material properties
  • Account for basic concepts and definitions at chip-cutting tooling
  • Know the behaviour of the tool-material and its wear at chip-cutting processes
  • Make calculations for economic outcome at chip-cutting tooling.


The basis for plastic deformation. The dependence of plasticity and deformation-resistance on state of tension, crystal-structure, temperature, speed of deformation, and degree of deformation. Influence of deformation-geometry and friction. Cold- and hot – deformation. The basic concepts of rolling: Widening, catching, the bending of rolls, bombation, tolerances, gauging of thickness,, surface condition and hardening by deformation. Basic theories for chip-cutting tooling, particularly turning and cutting. Cutting data, tool material and the influence of cutting liquids on the cutting process. The mechanism of wear at cutting tooling.


Lectures, calculation-exercises, laboratory work and educational visits

Written examination, assignments and laboratory work.


The course is included in the Technician education 120 HEC and in the Bachelors education 180 HEC.
The course corresponds to MP1010.
