This course will cover the basic principles of print reading. The emphasis is on interpreting standard lines and symbols in single- and multiple-view working drawings. Topics include print reading procedures, drawing changes, machining specifications, and the reading of prints in specialized areas including ANSI and ISO standards. Strongly recommend a basic understanding of mathematics concepts.
This course will introduce students to computer-aided drafting (CAD) and computer-aided machining (CAM). Students will use appropriate CAD software to prepare mechanical drawings. Students will be introduced to CAD/CAM equipment.
This course will provide the basic machining information needed by the learner in subsequent CNC Machine Tool Operation courses. It will also provide instruction and practice in the use of sawing and drilling machines and related processes.
This course includes instruction of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) lathes and mills including calling up programs in the machine control unit, loading and deleting programs; setting work offsets; loading and unloading parts; loading tooling and tool offsets; running programs to make parts; and part inspection. By the end of the course, learners will set up work pieces in machines, enter programs, set up tool offsets, enter work offsets, and complete parts and projects.
This course includes the operation of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) mills and lathes by providing instruction and practice in the use of milling and turning machines. This course will also provide an introduction to job planning for CNC lathes and mills using standard G and M codes, including the use of process plans, inspection sheets, and set up guides will also be covered. This course will also provide the opportunity for learners to write their own job planning and editing of provided programs. By the end of this course, learners will edit programs, change speeds and feeds as needed, and adjust tool and work offsets to produce parts within specified tolerances.
