The Sierra College Advanced Manufacturing program is affiliated with the Gene Haas Foundation of Haas Automation, the largest CNC machine tool builder in the western world. Learn the latest technologies and get exposure to the entire spectrum of manufacturing. Design, build, and manufacture in the Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machining courses held in our state-of-the-art center.
- Introduction to 2D CAD/CAM – Introduction to use and operation of a CAD/CAM software system. Develop part geometry with Computer Aided Design (CAD), import files, plan cutting and machine operations, and develop machine tool paths using Computer-Aided Machining (CAM).
- Design Using Fusion 360 – Integration of Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided-Manufacturing (CAM) using the Autodesk Fusion 360 software platform. This includes parametric solid model designing, and the presentation of those designs using built-in model rendering. Also covered is the use of CAM tools for control of CNC machines.
- Computer-Aided 2D Design – Study of Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) cutting systems in the 2D world using industry standard hardware and development software. Topics include design principles, copyright, selection of materials, billing of materials, job estimating, basic G and M code commands, use of consumables, cut quality evaluation, and trouble-shooting techniques.
- CNC Mill 3D Manufacturing – Principles and operative skills to setup, program and operate Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling machines, designed to impart basic manufacturing knowledge and skills. Instruction of Geometrics, Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM), beginning CNC operations and manual programming skills, and measurement.
- CNC Three Axis and Multi-Axis Milling – Applications using multi-axis CNC machining. Develop complicated part geometry with Computer Aided Design (CAD), import files, plan machine operations, and develop machine codes by Computer-Aided Machining (CAM) with multi-axis focus. Includes simulation modeling used to proof the assigned laboratory exercises and set-up for 3+2 and 4th and 5th axis operation of CNC machining centers.
- Advanced Mill 4th and 5th Axis – Advanced CNC machining 4th and 5th axis Mill work. Develop complicated part geometry with Computer Aided Design (CAD), post process CAM tool path development, plan machine operations, and develop machine codes and techniques for cost effectiveness. CNC Lathe operations. Statistical Process control.
