Welding - WELD 240
Computer Numerical Control
4 Credit Hours2 Lecture Hours4 Laboratory Hours
Introduction to the theory and application of programming and sequencing of numerical control automation and cutting equipment. Emphasis will be placed on utilizing incremental and absolute programming language applying G and M codes. Students will use computer software and nesting to create cutting paths as well as learn troubleshooting components of the automated equipment and programs. Welding skills developed in advanced arc welding and welding print reading will be applied.
(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- Apply standard safety operating procedures when dealing with the CNC and automated equipment.
- Identify the different types of materials that may be cut by Plasma and Oxyfuel.
- Utilize appropriate mathematical skills to write out coordinates and layout parts.
- Differentiate between incremental, absolute and CAD programs.
- Troubleshoot numerical control software programs and equipment.
- Apply nesting software.
- Operate Computer Numerical Control (CNC) equipment for required parts.
- Program a bill of materials to produce a fabrication project.
- Determine proper cut sequencing for a part program.
- Create a CAD part for cutting.
- Utilize appropriate techniques to modify standard shapes.
- Identify how join design, welding process and filler materials affect the performance of automation.
- Fabricate fixtures used for automation equipment.
