Welcome to Arcada - University of Applied Sciences!

Roll forming

Introduction to the roll forming process. (Hot Rolling: Steel Master Programme The Master's Programme in Metal Forming and Surface Technology is open to students with different backgrounds in materials, processes and applications. The programme is designed for students who are interested in continuing to doctoral studies and/or working as project leaders in industrial R&D within the steel industry or in various manufacturing industries. The Programme has a strong focus on materials, advanced forming processes, surface technology, modelling and simulations, which includes sheet metal forming, the role of the materials in plastic forming operations, micro-structure developments and tribology in metal forming processes.

Microorganisms and their use in Industry -National 4

There are three main groups of micro-organisms: These are bacteria, viruses and fungi. The ones that we need to know about for now are bacteria and a particular fungus called yeast, they are both unicellular. Microorganisms can be used by humans to produce foods and other useful substances. They are suitable for this role because they grow rapidly, may have simple nutrient requirements, range of food sources and can produce a wide range of products. Yeast is useful in many industrial processes because when it feeds on sugar it makes alcohol and carbon dioxide. • Beer and wine making - Yeast is used in beer and wine making because when it feeds on sugar it makes alcohol. This is known as fermentation - respiration without oxygen. C02 gives the fizz. • Breadmaking - Yeast produces carbon dioxide which is used in dough to make the dough rise. When the bread is baked the spaces created by the yeast keep the break light and fluffy. Baking also gets rid of the alcohol which evaporates off. Bacteria is also used on industry. • Yoghurt making - Some bacteria are added to milk to make yoghurt. The bacteria feed on the lactose sugar in milk to make lactic acid. This lactic acid thickens the milk and makes it sour to give yoghurt its characteristic taste and texture. • Cheese making - When making cheese, bacteria are added to milk (along with the enzyme rennet) to make cheese. The enzyme acts with bacteria to clot the milk and make curds and whey. The whey is the liquid bit which is just drained off. The curds is the solid bit which is used to make cheese.

Plastic At Home

How to make plastic at home with styrofoam and acetone. Sculpt the finest shapes for work or pleasure....

Arcada is the only university of applied sciences in Finland offering a degree programme in Plastics Technology. The education will give you in-depth knowledge in polymers (the main ingredient in all plastics materials) as well as in processing methods used in industrial production today. We will study new innovations, multifunctional materials, and future possibilities. Partly you will study together with your fellow students at the parallel programme in Swedish and experience the reality of a truly multicultural environment, which will prepare you well for a future career in an international field. In our plastics laboratory, a small-scale plastics factory, you can develop your practical skills as well as test your theoretical knowledge in practice.
