Multiaxis Computer Numerical Control Internship Report
Rouse, Sharon M.
Online Submission
(Purpose) The purpose of this paper was to examine the issues associated with bringing new technology into the classroom, in particular, the vocational/technical classroom. (Methodology) A new Haas 5 axis vertical Computer Numerical Control machining center was purchased to update the CNC machining curriculum at a community college and the process of incorporating the new equipment and related technology is documented in the study. (Results) Results were that introducing new technology is not a simple process due to numerous issues, time being one as well as software, hardware, and the learning curve. (Conclusions) Results of the study included successful adaptation of CAD/CAM software as well as setup and operation of the equipment with a simple part being manufactured without incidence. (Recommendations) Educators who are bringing in new technology need to understand the importance of time. Unforeseen events will crop up any time a new technology is brought into the classroom and time is needed to address these issues as they arise. (Contains 13 figures.)
