Intended Outcomes for the course
This course is based on competency mastery. Each section is assigned to a specific competency. Sections may be independent or dependent on other sections. The following competency profile is based upon industry standards that have been established for this course:
- Given a print", work piece, drill press, layout tools, and drills, the student will set up the drill press and drill holes according to the print specifications +/- 1/64.
- Given the necessary tools", materials, and equipment the student will face and center-drill both ends of the work piece on a lathe.
- Using the lathe and accessories", the student will perform rough and finish turning operation according to print specifications.
- Given the necessary materials", tools, and equipment, the student will machine an external taper, a radius, and chamfers.
- Given the necessary materials", tools, and equipment, the student will knurl a work piece to print specifications.
- Given the necessary materials", tools and equipment, the student will use the lathe to cut external threads to print specifications with the use of a Geometric Thread Chasing Head.
- Given the operators manual", .001 test indicator, indicol holder, parallels, a surface plate, fly cutter, end mills, and step by step instructions, the student will square and size a block of aluminum to print specifications.
- Given the necessary tools indicated by the operations on a print", the student will machine a workpiece to print specifications.
This course is based on performance outcomes. The following performance outcomes are based upon established industry standards. The student will demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the following:
