MET127 - Manufacturing Processes
The main purpose of this course is to familiarize the mechanical /
manufacturing engineering technology student with the principles and
operation of manual and numerically controlled milling machines.
Additional topics covered are the gear shaper, indexing head, and
grinding machines. Measuring instruments, as well as additional
manufacturing processes are also covered. Laboratory projects will
be assigned to reinforce the topics covered in the theory.
Prerequisite: MET 117 (1,3) 2 credits
