INDS 222 - CNC Mill

3 Credit: (1.5 lecture, 3 lab, 0 clinical) 4.5 Contact Hours: [INDS 102 , INDS 220 , and INDS 221 ]

Students learn how to plan, program, and run complex three-dimensional CNC programs. Mold inserts using small diameter tools with high spindle speeds and high feed rates will be created. Machine calibration and fixture set-up will be emphasized and discussed. Students will be responsible for developing process sheets for projects performed in the hands on lab. This class emphasizes minimal tool breakage, air time, programming time, wasted moves, wasted tool changes, and surface finish using 3-axis mill.
