COURSE DESCRIPTION

The course will provide lectures to introduce the basic knowledge of metal cutting process, NC technology and its applications in manufacturing devices (e.g. NC machine tools), the basic knowledge of NC programs based on ISO 6983 standard, the methodology of process planning, and their implementations in computeraided manufacturing environment.

The tutorials will be provided to practice process planning and NC programming with a Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) program for a given part which is expressed by 3D model with PMI. Results and findings will be reported and reflected upon in a technical report following a given template which is an analogous file for shop floor communication purpose.

After completed course the student should be able to:
• describe the basics of metal cutting process,
• describe the working principles of numerical control (NC) machine tools,
• program NC codes based on the ISO 6983 standard,
• analyze part 3D models with Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI) and interpret its implication for machining by applying the knowledge of process planning,
• create a process plan for a given part using a CAM program,
• document the process planning results as shop floor communication files.
