Summary
The subject is connecting with lessons Technology I, II, Machining - subjects what are interested about machining (turning, milling, drilling, and so on.) The subject extends knowledge about technological process creation and programming CNC machines tools. It will be used special software for CAM system (CAM - Computer-Aided Manufacturing). The name of the program is Edge CAM.
This subject is for II. semester of magister study, specialization mechanical technology.
Students will study theory and practice of machining technology (turning, 2.5 axis milling, 3 axis milling, drilling, wire cutting) by means of CAD/CAM system EdgeCAM. Contents of this subject including: creation and edition of CAD geometry, beginning cutting conditions, creation of technological process (strategy of cutting, setting cutting tools, instruction - G, M code etc.), cutting simulation, NC code generation for particular cutting machine.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Objectives are the summary terms of the general laws, procedures and information required for technologists working in the CAM system to introduce students to the basic principles of programming CNC machine stands, with possibilities and application of CAD / CAM system in practice and the basic methods of construction components using CAD / CAM systems . Students will learn how to work in a particular Edgecam CAM system (which is taught in the Department of machining and assembly), but also learns how to generally proceed in any other CAM system.
Course Contents
The course work is assigned to 3 projects, including developing procedures and information needed by engineers working in the CAM system. Students will learn how to work in a specific CAM system, which is taught in the Department of machining and assembly.
1. Explication basic terms.
2. Creation a manufacturing process in CAD / CAM systems.
3. Import geometric data in a CAM system.
4. Setting the initial conditions for machining.
5. Technology of free form surface milling.
6. 2.5 axis and 3 axis milling technology
7. Divide a description of the basic strategies of multi-axis milling.
8. 2.5 axis roughing milling.
9. 3 axis roughing milling.
10. 3 axis strategy of semi finishing and finishing.
11. 3 axis strategy of rest machining.
12. Determination of cutting parameters in relation to the surface roughness at the free form surface milling.
13. The final phase of the production process in the CAM system (Postprocessing, Creating NC code, Preparation of documentation).
14. Final practice - Evaluation.
