Basic Machine Tool Application
Students perform hands-on practical application of knowledge pertaining to safe set-up and operation of standard metal cutting machine tools. Students select appropriate cutting tools and calculate Revolutions Per Minute (R.P.M.) and feed rates. Students complete projects referencing manufacturing drawings while maintaining a safe shop environment. The safe use of hand tools compliments the use of standard machine tool operations. Various precision measuring instruments and measuring techniques are utilized by students to evaluate machined part sizes and features.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
