MET 117 - Manufacturing Processes

Course Description

The main purpose of this course is to familiarize the mechanical / manufacturing engineering technology student with the principles and operation of hand held tools and mechanical equipment such as lathes, drill press, etc. Measuring instruments, as well as manufacturing processes are also covered. Laboratory projects will be assigned to reinforce the topics covered in the theory. Prerequisite: None (1,3) 2 credits

 

Textbook

  • Textbook: Machine Tool Practices, 7th edition, Richard R. Kibbe Prentice Hall Publishing Co. (ISBN: 0130334472)
  • Reference: Machine Tool Laboratory Manual and Projects, SUNY Farmingdale, by Prof. D. Maltezos

 

Goals/Objectives

To give students hands-on experience in the use of hand tools, lathe machines, drill presses, etc.

 

Course Topics

  • Introduction to hand held tools and machining equipment. Machine, tooling, and equipment maintenance.
  • Introduction to measuring instruments and devices.
  • Grinding and inspection of tool bits. Use of hand held tools.
  • Introduction to lathe machine operations.
  • Selection of spindle speeds and cutting feeds on lathes.
  • Midterm test.
  • Set up of lathe for cutting threads.
  • Turning work between centers.
  • Set up of lathe for boring and reaming.
  • Set up and use of the bench drill press.
  • Set up and use of tap and body drills.
  • Final test.

 

Laboratory Projects

  • Grinding of turning tool bits requires use of grinding machine
  • Turning a pin punch requires use of lathe.
  • Turning a tensile specimen (including thread cutting) requires lathe.
  • Turning a gear blank requires lathe Drill and tap gauge requires press drill, hand-held tools and milling machine.
  • High speed thread cutting requires vertical milling machine, reversing tapping attachment.
