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


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 2021 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".
