Competency aims

The aim of the course is to give students the knowledge and practical skills in order to produce mould plates for injection moulding using Mastercam software and a CNC machine.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course the student is expected to be able to: -Be able to to simulate the machining of a mould plate using Mastercam 2019 software. -To determine the machine time, feed rate and tools for required machining operations. -Be able to write G-Code for the machining of parts on a CNC lathe. -To machine a mould plate in groups on the HAAS cnc machine in the Arcada workshop. -To produce engineering reports and to follow "Good Scientific Practice in Studies".

Course contents

Introduction to Mastercam Basic 2D Milling and Dynamic Milling Basic 3D Milling Mastercam Lathe Fanuc10T and G-Code Project - Prototyping of mould plate for tensile test piece

Prerequisites and co-requisites

Laboratory Safety for Engineers. Students are required to have taken Solid Modelling and Manufacturing Processes also. This is thus a second year subject and not recommended for first year students or open university students. Due to the limit of Mastercam software licenses at Arcada, the course is offered only to the recommended year of students inside Arcada or to students who have not passed the course previously. Other students may choose to download the software for home use or complete the work individually.

Additional information

Home software and additional interactive tutorials available from: www.emastercam.fi A number of learning documents also available at: http://mastercam.fi/

Recommended or required reading

The timetable of the course

It is required to first complete the Mastercam tutorials from itslearning using Mastercam. These may be done at home using the demo version of the software or at Arcada also. These tutorials will give the student the skills using the software. With the aid of the practical compulsory lab using the HAAS CNC milling machine, the student will be able to complete the project. Attendance of the weekly in class tutorial sessions is not compulsory. Week 2 Introductory Lecture. Introduction to Mastercam (Mastercam Basics tutorial) and using training resources at emastercam.fi.
