Focuses on development of layout and fabrication skills through a sequence of exercises and a final project. Students use equipment including a CNC shear, CNC press brake and CNC cutting table. (Prerequisites: Completion of or concurrent enrollment in 103-159 Computer Literacy - Microsoft Office; 442-331 Welding Print Reading; 442-357 Gas Metal Arc Welding 1 (GMAW 1); 804-360 Occupational Mathematics 1)
Enhances metal fabrication skills and techniques by developing fixtures, programming CNC press brakes and lasers, and finishing, while making a variety of projects. (Prerequisite: 457-345 Metal Fabrication)
Provides instruction and information on the basic principles of metals. Explores the behavior of metals and the processes which affect them. Explores the most common metals used in industrial processes.
Develops knowledge of plasma, laser and water jet cutting systems and forming processes. Safety and maintenance are emphasized as students practice cutting techniques on projects. (Prerequisite: Completion of or concurrent enrollment in 804-360 Occupational Mathematics 1)
