Course Description

Provides introductory level training in the practical application of machine manufacturing and fabrication technologies to the installation, repair, and adjustment of heavy equipment and machinery found at today's Industrial worksites. Covers the use of machinist's basic measuring tools such as the machinist's scale, combination square, depth micrometer, and vernier caliper. Covers the use of machinist's layout tools such as the divider, scribe, and prick punch. Introduces the use of turning machines for operations such as counterboring, grooving, and tapping; introduces the use of drilling machines for operations such as precise drilling, countersinking, and reaming; introduces the use of lathe and threading machines for operations such as head fabricating, cutting, chasing, and rolling for the forming of internal/external threads. Emphasizes safe work practices around hand and power fabricating tools of all kinds. Prerequisites: APR 268, and (WR 90 and RD 90) or IRW 90 and MTH 20 or equivalent placement or department permission. Audit available.

Addendum to Course Description

Required Course for Apprentices registered in the Millwright/Industrial Maintenance Technician Apprenticeship Program. It is open to any other student but requires Department Permission to take this course.

Intended Outcomes for the course

  • Apply machine manufacturing processes to the measurement and layout of metal work-pieces for the fabrication of parts used in the installation, repair, and adjustment of equipment and machinery at an industrial worksite.
  • Apply machine manufacturing processes to the set up, turning, cutting, filing,  and surfacing of metal work-pieces for fabrication of parts used in the installation, repair, and adjustment of equipment and machinery at an industrial worksite.
  • Apply machine manufacturing processes to the set up, drilling, reaming, boring, counter boring, countersinking, and tapping of metal work-pieces for the fabrication of parts used in the installation, repair, and adjustment of equipment and machinery at an industrial worksite.
  • Apply machine manufacturing processes to the set up, rough turning, grooving, tapering, and finish turning of metal work-pieces for the fabrication of parts used in the installation, repair, and adjustment of equipment and machinery at an industrial worksite.
  • *Demonstrate the proper care, use, and storage of hand and power tools (*required statewide outcome)
  • *Fabricate industrial materials in a variety of appropriate, trade-specific applications (*required statewide outcome)

Course Activities and Design

The Course Design is primarily lecture but with supervised labs. Instruction will include guest machinists and guided field trips to selected industrial sites.

Outcome Assessment Strategies

Assessment will be accomplished using skills' checklists filled out by an adequate sampling of Millwright/ Industrial Maintenance Technician Training Agents and/or an Apprentice's  Journey Person.
