These are a few of the courses you will take in the Machine Tool Operator program.
Materials for Machinists
During this course individuals will learn the terminology relating to the mechanical, physical, and chemical properties of materials used for Machine Tool Technics. Materials covered will be the classification of steel, cast iron, aluminum, copper, and polymers. Lab activities include hardening, annealing, case hardening, destructive test, non-destructive test, casting molding, welding, and gluing of materials.
MT Blueprint Reading and GD&T
Introduction of engineering language used on blueprints; interpretation of blueprints; blueprints and understanding manufacturing processes and communication between product design and machinist - manufacturer.
CNC Mill Programming Theory
In this course students will acquire knowledge and skills in CNC Mill programming concepts. Students will develop and apply manual G & M code programming skills in linear and circular interpolation, canned cycles, cutter compensation techniques, and applications using sub-program and sub-routines. Math concepts will be applied to find Cartesian coordinates for part geometry.
