MET-232 - CAM Applications 23 credits
This course does not involve operation of CNC machinery. It is intended for students that already have hands-on CNC machining experience, so CNC simulators are used. CAM II continues the technology learned in CAM I. After a review of CAM I, students learn how to create parts which require special fixtures and multiple operations. 3D Solid models are used exclusively throughout the semester to parallel state-of-the-art manufacturing environments. Standard machine holding devices such as vises and chucks are included with the fixtures as students graphically create the operation setups for a CNC mill and lathe. In addition, fourth-axis mill programming is included in the semester.
