MTT 230 - Computer Numerical Control I

Credits: 4
This course introduces basic lathe operations. Topics and applications cover manual and computer numerical control (CNC) lathe turning practices, tooling, machining practices, G & M codes and applied mathematics. Overview the axis systems, absolute and incremental programming, tool offsets, controller operation, and fixture offsets. Emphasizes critical thinking and problem solving through hands-on experience and practical applications.

Student Learning Outcomes
  1. Interpret engineering data presented in graphs or charts, algebraic expressions, and proportional relationships.
  2. Demonstrate the correct use of basic hand tools, special accessories, and required testing equipment.
  3. Utilize mathematical formulas to compute coordinates and solve lathe machining related problems.
  4. Identify and demonstrate correct setup and operation of tooling applications for the conventional engine lathe.
  5. Apply feeds and speeds calculations for given material and tooling combinations.
  6. Think critically and independently analyze, synthesize, and evaluate technical problems and information.
