Develop intermediate skills with the use of orthographic projection drawings, interpretation of print symbols, dimensioning standards, tolerance standards, assembly drawings, section and auxiliary views.
Applies basic methodology and operations of lathes, mills and grinding machines. Focuses on speeds and feeds, basic work holding devices and cutting tools. Milling machine applications to include: project planning, basic milling machine setups and operations and in-process inspection. Lathe applications to include: work planning, basic lathe setups to utilize basic work holding practices and in-process inspection.
Provides competency for common machine shop mathematics. An emphasis will be placed on problem solving skills using the metric system, common machining formulas from the machinery handbook and right triangle trigonometry. This course will focus on calculations that are common and unique in the machine trades.
Trains the learner how to set up CNC mills and lathes. Learner will install tooling, transfer programs, write programs and create rigid setups for machining parts. Learner will learn how to proof out programs and run programs for the first time in a safe manner.
Analyzes trade specific workplace communication situations to develop professional verbal and written communication skills by filling out job routing sheets, material requisitions, emailing vendors, job setup sheets, quoting jobs, cover letters, resume writing, and mock interviews.
Trains the leaner how to set-up and run CNC Milling Machines. Learners will obtain knowledge on proper tooling selection, creating accurate set-up sheets, writing G & M Code programs, and proving out programs for part accuracy. Learners then will be required to produce parts to print specifications.
