About this Unit
In 2010 this unit is being replaced by 300735 Automated Manufacturing. This unit covers areas of manufacturing processes, automated production systems and an introduction to CAD/CAM systems. Aspects of automated manufacturing are included and require students to model simple products in CAD and produce CNC toolpath programs by using the CAM part of the system. Also, it involves students using a CNC lathe and mill to manufacture the product. The mechanics of metal cutting in machine tools is included and ties in with cost estimation techniques of manufacturing processes. Tool materials and wear estimation are also covered. Some of the common forms of manufacturing that are included in this unit are metal forming, extrusion, welding, rolling and metal spinning. In addition, automation systems such as flexible manufacturing, robotic cells and mass production methods are described. Computer-aided manufacturing, process planning and robotic assembly will also be covered.
