Title Learning Atoms: Introduction to Computer Aided Process Planning
Product Type modules
Marketing Text Learn about process planning, machining operations and activities
The learning atoms in this section cover three major aspects of process planning for the metal industry:
In these modules you will learn the preliminary actions before the manufacturing of a workpiece.
+ CAPP11 - Introduction: Manufacturing routing is an essential part of the work preparation of a machining process. It is called as well the manufacturing study preliminary project.
+ CAPP12 - Cutting Directions: Afterwards define the accessibility, or cutting direction, within the part marker for the kind of machine tool chosen.
+ CAPP13 - Constrains: This step consists in studying the different constraints affecting to the surfaces so as to determine the anteriority between each one.
+ CAPP14 - Final assessment: The task of elaborating a manufacturing routing for a new part might look a bit tough. However in the manufacturing preparation office, the acquired experience and the practice leads, little by little, to this task being less of a burden.
2 Process Planning
The modules show the possibilities of the different CAPP systems.
+ CAPP21 - Introduction, Objective & Glossary: What is Process planning? Which processes employed to produce the part? Which types of machine fits to the operation we would like to perform with the required properties?
+ CAPP22 - CAPP introduction: The acronym CAPP stands for Computer Aided Process Planning. The preparation of the work is carried out with the aid of the computer.
+ CAPP23 - Commercial tools and systems: Different CAPP systems are available. Some with variant approach and others with generative approach.
These modules show how to prepare the machining of a workpiece.
+ CAPP31 - Cutting conditions: This module mainly concentrates on the machining process cutting conditions. Insight in this subject will enable the student to calculate the most productive and economical configuration.
+ CAPP32 - Determination of the basic operations: This module will teach the basic operations that can be performed by different machining machines.
+ CAPP33 - Cutting parameters: This module will teach you the basic cutting paramenters of the machining process.
+ CAPP34 - Characteristics of cutting tools: This module will teach you about the composition and characteristics of cutting tools.
+ CAPP35 - Influence of design on Time and Cost: This module will teach you how to reduce time and cost by optimizing the desing of the product.
+ CAPP36 - Machining sequence: This module will teach you some rules to determine the machining sequence.
+ CAPP37 - Clamping the workpiece: This module will teach you the elements that fix the workpiece during machining time.
+ CAPP38 - Phase contract: In this module you will learn the specifications of a phase contract and its function in manufacturing process.
+ CAPP39 - Properties of the material to machine: In this module you will learn which material properties are needed to increase the machinability, and thus, optimize the productivity.
+ CAPP310 - Workpiece surfaces and tolerances: This module shows how the engineer specifies the precision and roughness of the final piece by indicating these elements in the engineering drawing.
+ CAPP311 - Influence of cutting speed on time and cost This module will teach you how to cut production time and cost by calculating the optimal cutting speed for the machining phases.
