CNC Machining I
This course provides an introduction to Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining processes and the technology that supports them. Some of the processes covered are gauging, quality control, spot drilling, drilling, reaming, tapping, counter-boring, countersinking, defining and calculating speed and feed rates, screw thread identification, and drill sharpening. Students will perform these processes on manual equipment prior to observing them on CNC equipment. Occupational computer skills are also covered in this course. This course is dual credit with Carl Sandburg College.
CNC Machining II
This course provides more in-dept skill development in various types of precision tool operation, especially using mills, lathes and surface grinders to perform machining tasks. Students will also explore the use of computer and numerical controlled machining in the lab. Students will receive college credit from CSC in addition to high school credit.
This course is designed for students who are planning a career in either production or job shop industrial welding. The main objective is to acquire the skills and the knowledge necessary to enter industry as a beginning welder. Much time will be spent in the welding lab. The course will include stick arc welding, MIG welding, TIG welding, plasma cutting, cutting torches, brazing, braze welding, submerged arc, blue prints and shop safety. This course is held at the Center for Manufacturing Excellence/CSC. Students will receive college credit in addition to high school credit.
