Introduction to Inspection Practices: (#C020)
Intro to Inspection Practices is a 19 week course, taught in 4 hour sessions 2 days a week. Students will be taught Inspection fundamentals such as; Reading Dial Calipers, Micrometer, Height Gage and Basic Machine Shop Math. The course is a combination of multimedia learning and hands on practical application in our lab.
The following is an overview of the training which will be covered.
1. Math Fundamentals
2. Introduction to SolidWorks
3. Reading Dial Calipers, Depth Micrometer, Micrometer and Drop Indicator
4. Inspection: Basic Measurement, Hole inspection, Go-NoGo Gage
5. Shop Trig: Using Trig to find lengths, Solving right triangles, Multi step Trig problems
6. Blueprint Reading
7. Introduction to Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerance
8. Basics of the Coordinate Measuring Machine, Surface measurement, Calibration fundamentals
9. Inspecting with Coordinate Measuring Machines, Optical Comparator and Hardness testing
10. Quality overview
3 Axis Milling for Mold Shop: (#C021)
The Mastercam 3D course is a 10 lesson 20 hour class for intermediate/advanced students who have completed course C015, Mastercam 2D. The major difference in 3D is the capacity to create curves in the Z axis (up and down direction), thus allowing many more types of objects to be milled. The 3D course will continue the pattern established in 2D of answering the 5 questions that must be addressed each time Mastercam is used. These pertain to:
1) Drawing Preparation
2) Material selection
3) Part origin
5) Program Verification
Additional functions available in the Mastercam program will be demonstrated and a particular focus on refinement of the student’s proficiency in toolpaths (see #4 above) will also be emphasized. The student will have the capacity at the end of the 3D class to draw complex parts with the drawing component of the software and create detailed and complete instructions to have this part be completely created by a mill with a third axis capability. All the skills learned in the Mastercam 2D class are a pre-requisite for the Mastercam 3D class.
Students must have completed course C015 Mastercam 2D.
A CMT Certificate is awarded upon completion.
Introduction to General Machine Shop Practices with CNC Mill: (#C024)
This is an introductory course consisting of 50 Classes taught in two hour interactive lessons. In these classes students are introduce to the complex and rewarding field of Precision Machining. The program begins with Math Fundamentals and as you progress you’ll learn about Basics of Manual Mill, Basics of Engine Lathe, Blueprint Reading, Basics of Tolerance, Structure of Metals, Grinding Processes, Mechanics of CNC, Basics of CNC Machining, and Basics of CNC Turning. Upon completion of the training session the student will participate in three school projects or practical "labs", gaining valuable hands-on experience, creating hand tools or locating devices.
After GMSP is completed you'll take an additional 3 weeks of Instructor led Mastercam CNC Mill training.
Our enrollment cycles are 19 weeks in length (4 days per week, 8 hours per day), providing ample time for learning and content retention. In addition Center for Manufacturing Technology has established measureable goals and rewards for consistent attendance, acceptable test and lab scores, and additional scholastic accomplishments.
Student must be at least eighteen years of age, have a High School Diploma, GED, or equivalent, and must have some understanding of Math and basic Algebra. The student should possess a strong mechanical aptitude, have good problem-solving abilities, and be able to work independently. Experience working with machinery is helpful.
A CMT Certificate and up to four NIMS credentials are awarded upon successful completion.
