Announcing a Manufacturing Dual Credit Program With Lakeland Community College

cobra_rWe are very excited to announce that Paris High School will be offering a college co-credit series of manufacturing courses through Lakeland Community College in the Fall of 2015. The new Paris High School campus will house a new CAM Master Cobra CNC router as well as a nine station Aidex Armitrol lab that includes centers for learning about mechanical drives, electrical AC/DC systems, electric relay control, electrical fabrication, controls technology, fluid power, pneumatics, metrology, and robotics.  We have had two staff members from our vocational department receive extensive training to use the equipment and guide our students through the learning standards set for the courses. As a result of finishing these courses, our students will earn industry certification and  will be able to:

  • Illustrate outlines as discernible shapes of solids.
  • Draw sharp, clear, dark uniform lines; letter 1/8” tall vertical upper case.
  •  Read and document accurate measurements.
  • Use proper techniques to make sketches and technical drawings.
  • Demonstrate the use of a Computer‑Aided Drafting system to create simple to moderately complex technical drawings.
  • Understand how to use absolute, relative and polar coordinate entry methods in a CAD drawing.
  • Describe the purpose of Draw commands and how to use them.
  • Describe the purpose of Modify commands and how to use them.
  • Demonstrate how  to dimension a drawing and the purpose of the most common dimensioning commands.
  • Demonstrate how  to reuse drawing objects and to transfer them from one drawing to another using the Block, Wblock and Insert commands.  Identify career opportunities and work applications in the manufacturing field.
  • Perform programming and application techniques required to complete complex machining assignments.
  • Work will be performed on a computer numerically controlled milling machine and lathe.
  • Calculate spindle speeds and cutting speeds for a CNC machine.
  • Write and execute a program for a CNC mill.
  • Calculate programming coordinates using mathematical methods.
  • Setup tool and fixture offsets on a CNC machining center.
  • Write and execute a program for a CNC lathe.
  • Write on-line and off-line robot programs and operate robot using the programs.
  • Develop applications of Robots to include interfacing of additional actuators to the system.
  • Demonstrate CAD for practical applications to include Schematic Drawings, Sectional and Isometric Drawings, and facilities layout.
  • Discuss basic purpose and function of Computer-Aided Manufacturing.
  • Predict and calculate effects of induction and capacitance.
  • Read, interpret, design and operate basic control and sequencing control logic circuits.
  • Plan and install basic wiring systems.
  • Describe, construct, and operate different hydraulic and pneumatic circuits.
  • Describe principals of hydraulic/pneumatic flow and pressure controls and components used to provide control.
  • Program, set up, and operate online and offline CNC mill programs.
  • Setup and operate manual machine tools.
  • List and demonstrate how to use basic machining hand tools.
  • Describe, select, and apply proper drive systems for an application.
  • Discuss and calculate speed and torque changes throughout a power drive system.
  • Solve problems discovered using SPC.
  • Determine part quality using geometric dimensioning and tollerancing.
  • Use measuring equipment to determine the dimensions of parts.
