UGRD
| 2 CR
Students will learn about program structure (startup, work, shutdown), and basic G-codes including variations caused by machine type and programmer style. They will write simple programs and edit prewritten programs in order to hone their skill. The goal will be to start out simple and move to programs that are both efficient and effective. PREREQUISITE: 32420365 CNC Fundamentals or consent of instructor.

CNC turning centers produce many of the cylindrical shapes machined in production machine shops today. This course will include machine/control familiarization, machine startup procedures, program transfers, work holding preparation, tooling preparation, setting tooling offsets, and part origins. In addition, students learn how to run the first part including dry runs and making minor tool offset adjustments. PREREQUISITE: 32420365 CNC Fundamentals or consent of instructor.

Productive users of CNC machining centers benefit from the execution of effective and efficient CNC programs. Students will become familiar with frequently used G-codes and will be exposed to canned cycles. They will learn how to convert print specifications into CNC G-code format using linear and circular interpolation functions as well as utilizing the benefits of canned cycles for drilling, reaming, tapping, and boring holes. Programs will be entered and edited on personal computers and at the CNC Machining Center. PREREQUISITE: 32420365 CNC Fundamentals or consent of instructor.

CNC machining centers will be utilized in this course for the production of machined parts. This course will include machine/control familiarization, machine startup procedures, program transfers, work-holding preparation, tooling preparation, setting tooling offsets, and part origins. In addition, students will learn how to run the first part including dry runs and making minor tool offset adjustments. PREREQUISITE: 32420365 CNC Fundamentals or consent of instructor.

UGRD
| 2 CR
Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Assisted Manufacturing (CAM) have become standard tools used almost wherever CNC production in metalworking takes place. Students will use the CAD/CAM software to build geometry, tool and material libraries, and define cutting paths/patterns. Post-processing of these CAD/CAM files will generate CNC programs in machine-specific G-code format. PREREQUISITE: 32420361 Introduction to CAD/CAM or consent of instructor.
32420361
|
UGRD
| 1 CR
This course will introduce students to computer-aided drafting (CAD) and computer-aided machining (CAM). Students will use appropriate CAD software to prepare mechanical drawings. Students will be introduced to CAD/CAM equipment.
32420365
|
UGRD
| 2 CR
This course introduces the student to the development and editing of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programs. The basic elements of CNC machine setup and operation are covered for the production of acceptable parts. Safety concerns are also addressed. Strongly recommend a basic understanding of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry.
