Computer Numerical Control

This program explains the basics of Computer Numerical Control, or CNC, by featuring segments on: Computer Numerical Control Principles and Computer Numerical Control Programming. The CNC Principles segment highlights the rectangular coordinate system and its use in generating precision tool paths. Integral elements of the rectangular coordinate system are presented, including: program zero, coordinate points, coordinate polarity, the absolute mode, the incremental mode, quadrants, and the various axes of motion. The CNC Programming segment features the step-by-step examination of CNC part program commands and their various letter addresses and numeric values. Also presented are discussions of point-to-point positioning, contouring, interpolation, compensations, special programming features, manual programming, computer-aided part design, or CAD, and computer-aided manufacturing, or CAM.

Mechanical and Non-Destructive Testing

This program explores both mechanical and non-destructive tests used to gage the quality of materials and parts throughout the manufacturing process. Mechanical tests are used to gather specific performance or property values of materials for part design purposes and quality control. Non-destructive tests examine an object or material in a manner that does not impair it's future usefulness.

Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA)

This program was produced in cooperation with Robert Bosch Corporation in Farmington Hills, Michigan ,and is an introduction to the quality methodology Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA). As every new product is being designed, most manufacturing companies are developing FMEA documents to reduce the risk of product failures. In addition, quality standards like ISO9000 and QS9000 require an FMEA on all new products. To shorten development cycles, many different experts are involved in the design and testing phases of new products. This program was designed to quickly bring all team members up to speed on how the FMEA methods and procedures will impact them. It provides a general understanding of why companies do FMEAs, the difference between a product and a process risk, how FMEA documents track responsibilities to reduce risks, and what companies can do to minimize risks. After viewing this program, every person on your design team will have a good understanding of the importance of risk reduction and how the FMEA will keep track of these responsibilities.
