MPT 12100 CNC Machining II

(3 cr.) Lecture-Lab: 2-2
Offered: F,W,S
The advanced course builds upon the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) theory and machine tool concepts presented in CNC Machining I (MPT-12000).  Students will learn the advanced G and M codes, fundamentals of cutter compensation and when to use subroutines or subprograms.  Learning activities will also include the use of a canned cycle for drilling and cutting conditions for both the mill and the lathe.  Emphasis will include learning how to thread mill, bore a set of jaws for a lathe and the use of a tailstock for a lathe.  Upon completion of this course, the student will demonstrate a working knowledge of a CNC vertical machining center (mill) and a CNC turning center (lathe).
