In this course on machine shop safety, discussion will center on proper usage and care of conventional machinery. Participants also will learn about the use of measuring tools used in the machine shop, and practice defining feed and speed, as well as how to arrive at the proper thought process to achieve accurate cutting conditions
This course is designed to provide more detailed theoretical and practical knowledge of CNC machining and will cover more advanced topics using the IPFW Haas Technical Education Center (HTEC). Advanced M and G code programming, fourth and fifth axis machining, and an introduction to CAD/CAM systems will be covered, followed by hands-on experience in the HTEC.
This course for shop owners, engineers, industrial workers and CNC operators will cover fundamental operations and safety procedures. Topics to be covered include horizontal/vertical band saw, drill press, lathe operation, using the lathe to form threads, mill operations, CNC coordinate systems, tool offsets and functions, and other introductory CNC topics.
