MFG 103 - Conventional and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machining Level 1 Credits: 1-13
Emphasizes advanced calculations and machining operations on conventional lathes, milling machines, and surface grinders and their accessories. Introduces the basics of CNC programming and machining.
Prerequisite: MFG 102 with a grade of 2.0 or higher; and instructor consent.
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:
- Observe all occupational health and safety rules.
- Plan a machining job with the correct sequence of operations to produce a work piece to the specifications on the drawing.
- Calculate correct cutting speeds and feeds on both lathes and milling machines.
- Correctly produce a basic program for a CNC milling machine.
- Correctly use micrometers, dial calipers, vernier scales, steel rules, dial indicators, and do precision layout.
- Demonstrate accuracy and safety in the completion of manufacturing tasks.
- Produce a manually turned work piece.
- Produce a manually milled work piece.
- Produce a surface-ground work piece.
- Produce a CNC machined work piece.
- Use precision measuring instruments correctly.
- Identify and describe basic tool and project materials.
- Critical Thinking - Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
- Responsibility - Responsibility encompasses those behaviors and dispositions necessary for students to be effective members of a community. This outcome is designed to help students recognize the value of a commitment to those responsibilities which will enable them to work successfully individually and with others.
- Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning - Quantitative Reasoning encompasses abilities necessary for a student to become literate in today’s technological world. Quantitative reasoning begins with basic skills and extends to problem solving.
