MACH 243 CNC Machining III: Programming and Process Improvement

7 credits
Students will produce parts from the programs and work holding that they have created. While participating in a team environment, they will analyze everything from work holding, tool and tool holder selection, to the processes and their CAM toolpath parameters to see if they can better their results. Students will then create projects for production training in other machining courses. Students will periodically mentor other students of earlier courses as demonstration of their learned skills and knowledge of this and previous courses.

Prerequisites: MACH 242  or instructor permission

Quarters Offered: All
