PRS 231 - Machine Tool 4 Lecture

Hours: 2
A course that studies the fundamental skills required in the machining industry. Skill topics include: safety, bench work, measuring devices, basic machinery and their functions including: drill presses, vertical milling machines, horizontal mills, engine lathes, grinding machines, surface grinders and common cutting tools. The overarching goal of this course is to afford the student the opportunity to earn NIMS credentials, (The National Institute for Metal Working Skills) as they demonstrate their competency with the tools and procedures used in the industry. NIMS credentials certify to employers that the holder is qualified to work in the industry. In this course students can earn one NIMS credential. They are surface grinding operations. This course is the next step up in the NIMS Level 1 credentials. This course is an introduction to the surface grinder, work holding, tool holding devices for the surface grinder and machining operations on the surface grinder. Students may earn a NIMS credential in this course; both a practical and theory test must be mastered to receive the credential.
