IME 3580 - Computer Aided Manufacturing Required Course Current Catalog Data: Principles of operation of numerically-controlled systems for manufacturing. Application of CAD/CAM systems and graphics CNC in programming. Lecture/Lab: (2-3), Credit: 3 hrs Prerequisite Courses: 1. Machining Fundamentals including machine feeds and speeds - IME 2540 2. Understanding of capabilities of Graphical Computer Systems - IME 2460 3. Capability to define and follow an algorithmic approach to problem solving - CS 1040 or CS 1110 Current Textbook: 1. Nanfara, F., Uccello, T., and Murphy, D. (2002). The CNC Workshop. SDS Publications (Required) Course Coordinator: Dr. Pavel G. Ikonomov, Associate Professor / Office E221 / Phone:(269) 276-3284 E-mail [email protected] Office hours: Monday/Wednesday 10:30 AM-12:30 PM, Thursday 1:30AM-2:30 PM. (Additional office hours by appointment Monday - Friday (9:00 AM-9:00 PM) Course Objectives: By the end of the semester the students should have the ability to, 1 Identify the major and secondary axes on Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machines. (a, b, & f). 2 Program CNC machines using EIA/ISO (G- and M-code) programming procedures (a, b, c, d, f, & h). 3 Operate graphical CAM systems to generate, simulate and verify EIA/ISO CNC programs (a, b, c, d, f, g, & h). 4 Modify CAM systems to tailor the post-processor for unique CNC machines (a, b, c, d, f, g, & h). ¹ Letter in parenthesis refers to the ABET-TAC criteria. Performance Criteria (Learning Outcomes) Objective 1: Mid-term Exam. The mid-term exam will be given on the last week of October. It will be comprehensive, covering all material that was presented in the lecture and the laboratory to date. The mid-term exam will account for 25% of the grade. (1, 2, 3, and 4). Objective 2: Final Exam. The final exam will be held on Monday, Dec. 13, 2:45-4:45 PM. The final exam will be comprehensive, covering all material that was presented in the lecture and the laboratory for the entire semester. The final exam will account for 25% of the grade. (1, 2, 3, and 4). Objective 3: Homework/pop quizzes: Various homework assignments will be made during the course of the semester. Homework will not be accepted late and must be submitted using e-Learning (WebCT-Vista). Pop quizzes will not be announced and can not be made up if missed. The total of all homework and pop quizzes will account for 5% of the grade. (1, 2, 3, and 4) Objective 4: Class Participation: All students are expected to actively participate in the discussion of the topic of the day. The students will be evaluated on their individual degree of participation. This will account for 5% of the grade. (1, 2, 3, and 4). Objective 5: Lab Activities: Various means will be used to evaluate the students lab work including (but not limited to) lab reports, lab quizzes, questioning about details of lab set-ups, etc. The evaluation of the lab activities will account for 35% of the grade. (1, 2, 3, and 4) Objective 6: Lab Housekeeping: The maintenance of a clean and safe work area is vital to the manufacturing enterprise. All students will be required to clean up after themselves. Furthermore, every student will be required to determine and accomplish a necessary item of common housekeeping at each lab session. Evaluation of the student's housekeeping will account for 5% of the grade.IME 3580, Fall 2010 (Note: Due the arrangement of the labs work, missing more than one or two labs may lead to discharge from the course) Topics and Schedule: Week 1 Introduction to CNC (Chapter 1) Week 2 CNC Fundamentals and Vocabulary (Chapter 2) Week 3 CNC motion and precision control (handouts) Week 4 Computational geometry for CNC machining (handouts) Week 5 Programming Concepts (Chapter 3) Week 6 CNC Interactive Simulation Software CNCez (Chapter 4) Week 7 Mid-term exam Week 8 Turning Part 1 (Chapter 6) Week 9 Turning Part 2 (Chapter 6) Week 10 CNC Milling Part 1 (Chapter 5) Week 11 CNC Milling Part 2 (Chapter 5) Week 12 &13 Introduction to CAD/CAM (Chapter 7) SURFCAM and Cimatron simulation Week 14 Robotic programming, CAM simulation, and Post processors (handouts) Professional Component Elected course that addresses the requirements for professional development with: a) Basic science: 10% b) Engineering topics: 90% c) General education: 10% Relationship to Program Educational Outcomes This course is basic course that: (1) Developing skills for Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) (2) Provides development and communications skills in the technical area of CAM production - Computer Usage: Extensive use of computer hardware and software is required throughout this course. Most lab sessions take place at the CAM Lab and CAES Lab. CNCez simulation is required for most of the homework’s - Laboratory Usage: Because of class size, labs simulation software is used in the machine and CAES Lab. Industrial grade equipment (CNC machines) are used by smaller groups of students during the course of the semester. - Oral and Written Communications: Written reports are required for all laboratory exercises. There are no formal oral presentations required for this course; however, active participation is expected during the course of lectures. - Calculus Usage: There is no specific calculus requirement for this course. - Library Usage: There is no specific library requirement for this course. You are responsible for making yourself aware of and understanding the policies and procedures in the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs that pertain to Academic Honesty. These policies include cheating, fabrication, falsification and forgery, multiple submission, plagiarism, complicity and computer misuse. [The policies can be found at under Academic Policies, Student Rights and Responsibilities.] If there is reason to believe you have been involved in academic dishonesty, you will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct. You will be given the opportunity to review the charge(s). If you believe you are not responsible, you will have the opportunity for a hearing. You should consult with your instructor if you are uncertain about an issue of academic honesty prior to the submission of an assignment or test. Prepared by: Dr. Pavel G. Ikonomov Date:
