IND-106 - MACHINE SHOP II

Lecture: 1

Lab: 2

Credit: 2

This course introduces students to the basics of calculating cutting speeds and feeds for machining ferrous, non-ferrous, and plastics materials on the lathe. It also demonstrates the fundamentals of mounting a chuck on an engine lathe and truing a work piece in a chuck and introduces students to the three methods of facing work to length in a chuck. The course will show students how to straight turn a work-piece to two concentric diameters in a four-jaw independent chuck. Students will learn the correct procedures for taking both roughing and finishing cuts. They will also learn to turn between centers. Finally, students will learn the proper method of finishing one end of work to one diameter, reversing the work in the chuck, and finishing the other end to another diameter. It will demonstrate how to perform four internal machining operations on the engine lathe; drilling, boring, counter-boring, and reaming. Prerequisite: IND-103.
