Machine Tool

Dual Credit High School Academy

CVTC and local high schools have partnered to offer students who are interested in pursuing a career in Machine Tool an opportunity to earn high school and college credit. This year-long academy begins a student's preparation for employment in CNC programming, CNC machining, CNC operation, mold making, and quality control inspection. Students will earn 16-18 credits in CVTC's Machine Tooling Technics program and will be one-quarter of their way to a technical diploma, and earn an industry recognized credential. This program is great for students who have good mechanical skills and enjoy building or crafting items.

Courses transfer into UW-Stout Industrial Management and Career and Technical Education Training Programs.

You will learn the following:

· operating industrial-sized manual machine tools – including engine lathes, milling machines and grinding machines
· precision tolerances with machine tools
· the process of chip removal and applied physics

Course Description

420-321 Manual Turning Processes
This course is intended to develop the fundamental skill for a career in the machining trade. Fundamental       processes include; Manual Lathe operation, basic set-up, lay-out, measurement, turning processes, and tool   geometry/sharpening. The format for this class is a self-paced lab with a minimum allowable standard established.  This course requires the purchase of tools and measuring equipment required for working in the Machine Tool lab. 

421-385 Blueprint Reading
This course is designed with an emphasis on machine tooling technology related to multiview computer-aided design (CAD-working drawings in 2D & 3D) and manufacturing prints, freehand sketches, and construction layout geometry. Visualization, line usage, working drawings, holes, sections, threads, angles & tapers, and machine details are interpreted from industry standards. Use of the Machinery's Handbook, ASME Y14.5 Dimensioning and Tolerancing documents are applied to geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) with shop drawings/prints.

420-373 Precision Measurement
This course will provide the theory, technique, and care of the coordinate measuring machine (CMM) and various measuring instruments. The student will apply blueprint reading skills and geometric tolerancing to projects made in the machine shop while applying measuring techniques used with the CMM and basic measuring instruments. The student will be exposed to precision inspection methods as it relates to industrial blueprints, manufactured parts, and the student's projects.  

420-322 Manual Milling Processes
This course expands on the fundamental skills of the machine shop by broadening the student's knowledge base with Manual mill operation, basic set-up, layout, measurement, drilling and milling processes along with using a variety of milling cutters. 

420-300 Machine Shop Theory
This machine shop theory course will provide the student with a broad theoretical background covering a variety of topics of importance directly related to the machinist and machine tool operator.

420-341 Materials for Machinists
During this course individuals will learn the terminology relating to the mechanical, physical, and chemical properties of materials used for Machine Tooling Technics. Materials covered will be the classification of steel, cast iron, aluminum, copper, and polymers. Lab activities will include hardening, annealing, case hardening, destructive test, non-destructive test, casting, molding, welding, and gluing of materials.
