Standard industry practices and tool set-ups will be emphasized and applied.Transferable to CSU Only
Formerly MACHT 201. This course covers the study of machine shop problems involving the solution of formulas related to screw threads, feeds and speeds, spur gears, simple and angular indexing. Geometric figures, angles, triangles, circles, arcs, trigonometric functions, compound angles and oblique triangles will also be introduced.
Formerly MACHT 203. This course covers Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), emphasizing interactive graphics programming for Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines. Concepts studied will include interactive geometry construction, tool motion, machine functions, repetitive programming, graphic output and graphic editing. Students will process programs using interactive graphics computer systems.
This course covers the study of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programming with emphasis on programming to support CNC machinery supporting the sheet metal industry. These machines include punch press, brakes, laser cutters and plasma cutters and pipe benders.
Formerly MACHT 204. This course covers Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), emphasizing interactive graphics programming for Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines. Students will utilize various techniques of creating geometry on multiple work planes, three dimensional (3- D) surface tool path creation and manipulation, implementing 4th and 5th axis machining, generating surface to surface intersections, creating blends between surfaces, creating roughing operations for 3D, and CAD data conversion for the purpose of 3D machining.
