Video Tutorial To learn Advance Manufacturing Process | Machine Shop Operations

Latest Manufacturing Technology:

As the competition improves in the market. This has lead manufacturers to come up with innovative products which is more reliable and quality products.

CNC plays a important role in advance machining process. CNC Machining is a process used in the manufacturing sector that involves the use of computers to control machine tools. Tools that can be controlled in this manner include lathes, mills, routers and grinders.

CNC machines are dictated by Numerical Control program via computer. Under CNC Machining, machine tools function through numerical control.

A computer program is customized for an object and the machines are programmed with CNC machining language (called G-code) that essentially controls all features like feed rate, coordination, location and speeds. With CNC machining, the computer can control exact positioning and velocity. CNC machining is used in manufacturing both metal and plastic parts.

The first step in the CNC machining is having 3D or 2D model in CNC software like MasterCAM native file format. The model is obtained from Design team who design the products in CAD software. Once its done, the model in imported into CNC software and it will trace back the model. Finally Machinist will define what machining operations to be carried with all dimensions and tolerances to be maintained.

There are many advantages to using CNC Machining. The process is more precise than manual machining, and can be repeated in exactly the same manner over and over again. Because of the precision possible with CNC Machining, this process can produce complex shapes that would be almost impossible to achieve with manual machining. CNC Machining is used in the production of many complex three-dimensional shapes. It is because of these qualities that CNC Machining is used in jobs that need a high level of precision or very repetitive tasks.

Hence its essential for Mechanical Engineers and Engineers who are in the manufacturing industry to known latest manufacturing operations. To know about advance manufacturing technology visit MIT techTV where lots of Video tutorial available on latest Manufacturing Technology.

Not to forget I have already posted about MIT Mechanical Engineering tutorial on various topics like Aerospace,Thermal,Engineering mechanics etc.,

I wish you will learn various CNC operations like Multi Axis Milling,Grinding,Turning,EDM,Laser,Sheet metal bending etc., from this Machine shop video tutorial.
