444-301 Metrology

Metrology is the study of measurement. The production of quality parts is impossible without adequate measurement. Therefore, this is a course that should be taken before any machining course. You will learn about an assortment of precision and semi-precision measuring instruments used for the job shop or where large numbers of parts are produced. Material will cover instrument care, types, components, scales, calibration, handling, and reading the instrument. You will have an opportunity to use and gain profi ciency in most of the measuring instruments that are discussed.

444-302 Semi-Precision Machining

This course is designed to acquaint the student with the semi-precision/fabrication machines in the machine shop. These machines are easier to operate and provide a good starting point for the beginner. These machines should not be considered to be less important in the machine shop or to require less skill to operate. These drill presses, pedestal grinders, bench tools, and saws are extremely important tools. The associated work holding, cutting tools, processes, and measuring instruments are also taught.

444-306 Turning Applications

This advanced turning course involves performing more difficult machining operations, using different materials, and using different work holding devices. The material, work holding devices and setups will present the learner with challenging situations that require them to apply their past experiences along with what they have learned in theory to produce quality parts. In situations where the student is performing previously learned operations, the learner will be expected to develop their speed and accuracy. One of the requirements of an advanced course is that students apply their knowledge to problems through the trouble shooting process.

444-307 Manufacturing Support Systems

Producing machined parts routinely requires that components be cut on different machines in a specified sequence. While dozens to thousands of different parts may be at various stages of completion at any given instant within a manufacturing facility, it is necessary that these parts be sequenced properly and progress tracked so product can be shipped to the customer when expected. Students will be exposed to this environment and will learn to understand how sudden changes (scrap/rework) influence this critical manufacturing function.

The grinding portion of this course will start you out at the beginning with grinding terminology, machine types, control names and functions, and processes. The related grinding information grinding theory, tooling, safety, and work holding will be taught. This course will result in the learner being able to setup and operate a surface grinding machine to perform simple grinding operation to typical grinding tolerances. The purpose of the gear cutting activity is to introduce the student to the terminology, math, tools, and techniques for cutting gears. Gear cutting besides being a specialized machining operation is an occupational discipline in itself. That is, students may find they would like to cut gears as a career. It is a highly specialized process so it is only possible for a student to get an introduction. This introduction should prepare the student adequately for a job entry level position.

444-313 Tooling and Workholding

This module consists of competencies relating to work holding devices and methods. Students will learn about the basic work holding principles, work holding devices, and work holding methods. These topics will be discussed in depth so that the student will be able to select and apply the best work holding device for the situation. Advanced knowledge of work holding will promote safety, setup speed, and cutter/work rigidity. Cutting tool information is vital for an in-depth and complete understanding of the machining processes. The selection of cutting tools and cutting tool data may be one of the most complex areas of study. Students will learn to select tools based on part geometry and machining operation. The learner will acquire the cutting data from formulas along with using reference material to obtain the data. This is very important because one of the most common complaints from employers is that employees cannot set machine feeds and speeds resulting in either wasted time or damaged tooling. As the student becomes more proficient, they will gain the ability to troubleshoot machining problems that are related to cutting tools.
