CNC Programming* (36 Hrs) $695.
MAC104 Tu, 3/10 – 5/26/2020, 6-9 pm
This is a hands on course that introduces CNC programming of two axis turning and/or three axis milling machines and provide instruction in manual part programming and advanced operations. Various aspects of intermediate to Advanced G and M code programming to include fixture offsets, thread milling, looping, macro, and sub program development/ utilization/execution will be included. A portion of this class will be spent proving out students programs on real world CNC equipment. Knowledge of trigonometry helpful, but not necessary Student purchased textbook required, “Precision Machining Technology” by Peter Hoffman, et. al (2nd edition), $100.
Lathe Operations 2* (36 hours) $720.
MAC123 Th, 3/5-5/21/20 , 6-9 pm (no class 4/9)
This course provides supplemental theory and skills instruction in conventional lathe machining operations. Skill embellishment and expanded external, as well as internal surface piece-part machining operations and associated accident prevention practices and procedures will be stressed. Concepts and mathematical calculations for part geometry determination, specific lathe (machining) requirements, and the use of digital readout units will be covered. Carbide/ceramic/diamond cutting tool material, insert, and tool holder identification and selection requirements for lathe work will be explained in detail. Process planning and Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) characteristics appropriate for lathe machining will also be addressed. Pre-requisite: MAC112 Lathe 1 or by instructor invitation per demonstrated skill level. Student purchased textbook required, “Precision Machining Technology” by Peter Hoffman, et. al (2nd edition). Students will be prepared to sit for NIMS credential.
Milling Operations 2* (36 Hrs) $720.
MAC124 M, 3/2-5/18/20 , 5:30-8:30 pm
This course provides theory and hands on skill instruction supplemental to Milling Operations I (MAC121). Skill embellishment and expanded surface feature creation in the use of conventional metal working milling machines and attachments, along with associated accident prevention practices and procedures will be stressed. Concepts and mathematical calculations for machining of prismatic (cube-like) features and part geometry will be emphasized. Process planning, documentation and Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) characteristics for milling work will be addressed. Cutters and insert (geometry and grade) selection, as well as cutting parameters, will be stressed. Prerequisite: Knowledge of shop math and blueprint reading necessary. Student purchased textbook required, "Precision Machining Technology" by Peter Hoffman, et. al (2nd edition). Students will be prepared to sit for NIMS credential.
