Computer Programmed Milling Machine Operations. High-Technology Training Module.
This learning module for a high school metals and manufacturing course is designed to introduce the concept of computer-assisted machining (CAM). Through it, students learn how to set up and put data into the controller to machine a part. They also become familiar with computer-aided manufacturing and learn the advantages of computer numerical control (CNC) over conventional machining. The six sections of the module are the following: module objectives, content outline, teaching methods, student activities, resource list, and evaluation (pretest, three exercises, and posttest). Student activities include information sheets and are illustrated with line drawings. (KC)
