Advanced Manufacturing

Classes

ADM 101 : PRECISION MEASUREMENT

This course covers the use of precision measurement instruments utilized in inspection. In addition, basic blue print reading techniques, reverse engineering, and related industry standards required in advanced manufacturing disciplines are covered. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate correct use of precision measuring instruments, interpret basic prints, and apply reverse engineering techniques.

ADM 116 : INTRODUCTION TO CATIA

Introduction to parametric, three-dimensional modeling using CATIA (v5 or 6). Focus on how to navigate within this software, how to create three-dimensional solid models using industry best practices, and then how to create and manipulate assemblies made from these parts. Learn the processes of designing models with CATIA from conceptual sketching, through to solid modeling, assembly design, and drawing production. Upon completion of this course you will have acquired the skills to confidently work with CATIA. Gain an understanding of the parametric design philosophy of CATIA in this extensive hands-on course. It is expected that all new users of CATIA will require this course.

ADM 162 : ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING PROCESS-POLYMERS

This course focuses on basic principles and methodology of different types of polymers and processes created with the Additive Manufacturing (AM) process. Comparison of selecting the best type of polymer for production will be discussed. Students receive proper instruction on safety operations, set-up and routine maintenance and production on the AM systems. Students learn the various types of polymer AM systems, i.e. Fused Deposition Manufacturing (FDM), PolyJet, and SLA. Students also learn the software used for each AM system. Upon completion, students will be able to describe the different types of polymers available for the AM process including but not limited to ABS, PC, PC-ABS, ULT, PPSF, and Nylon and explain what the benefits are of basic AM. They should be able to demonstrate how to take a “part” from start to finish on the AM system and be able to select the best process for the type of product being produced.

ADM 212 : INTERMEDIATE CATIA

This course explores the techniques for using CATIA v5/6 to produce working level of engineering drawings. Detail and assembly drawings are created with attention focused on proper views, text, dimensions, tolerances, bills of material, borders and title blocks. Weldments, flat patterns, and other special practices are also examined.

ADM 261 : REVERSE ENGINEERING

During this course students learn the process of quality control inspection of parts and uses of reverse engineering processes employing 3-D printing, scanning, and Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM technologies). Emphasis is on using applicable software to produce 3-D models or converting scanned images into 3-D models; using CMM for parts inspection and generating points cloud for 3-D modeling; interfacing generated models with reverse engineering methods.
