MACH1030 Principles Of Computerized Numerical Control Fundamentals Of Manual Program
Description: This module is designed for a student to study the history, principles and economic significance of numerical control. In addition, the student will be given an understanding of the functions of major components of CNC systems, the application of Cartesian co-ordinates to CNC machine tool motions, axis designation. The student will also be introduced to the fundamentals of manual programming for contouring CNC machines involving simple linear and circular interpolation CNC terminology. Understand the principles of numerical control and their application to metal cutting machine tools. As well, the student will write simple CNC part programs for continuous path machining operations and prove programs using computerized CNC simulation.
MACH1040 Computerized Numerical Control Machine Tool Consoles
Description: This module is designed to give the student an understanding of manual and automatic control of CNC machine tools through the use of the control console keyboard, CRT, D.N.C., memory and editing functions. In addition, the student will become familiar with special machine function controls for removal of chips, automatic tool changing. Understand the functions of CNC machine tool control consoles and activate their various modes of operation.
MACH1050 Computerized Numerical Control Set-Up And Operating Procedures
Description: This module is designed to give the student the skills necessary to set up CNC turning/machining centres. The student will read set up sheets, select cutting tools from a tool library, mount tooling in the turret/automatic tool changer, select and mount workholding devices, set zero positions and set the tailstock. The student will also learn to position the turret for cycle start, set tool offsets, perform dry runs for unproven programs, make any necessary corrections. Set up tooling and workpieces on CNC turning/machining centres in accordance with program set up sheets to produce workpieces to engineering drawing specifications from existing part programs.
