MET-151 - CNC Applications

2 credits

This course is a continuation of the fundamental concepts of Computer Numerical Control (CNC). The course begins with a review of the programming structure for a CNC mill and lathe. Students will analyze prints and write CNC programs of increased complexity. An emphasis will be placed on part processing, writing code, and manufacturing parts. The 4th axis rotary table will be introduced with programs being written and parts being manufactured using this milling attachment. Tool holders, insert geometry and their various applications will also be reviewed for both the mill and the lathe. Work holding and work handling devises will be discussed with the goal of saving time and money by using different configurations.

Prerequisite(s): MET-150 (C or better).
