TAM 255 - Computer Aided Manufacturing Laboratory

3 Credits

Students will apply the work developed in TAM 245. This will involve the setup and operation of various CNC equipment to manufacture parts. Vertical machining centers, CNC lathe, and EDM equipment could be used in this laboratory. Tooling problems, material differences, and program editing and revisions will be included in this course. The goal is to have complete support documents with the accurate manufactured parts. Six laboratory hours.

Prerequisite(s): TAM 139, TAM 142, TAM 155, TAM 241 and TAM 245.
