This module will give participants an in depth learning experience in computer-aided design and hands on experience on the processes of computer-aided manufacturing, using state-of-the-art equipment.
In the first part of the module you will utilise 3D modelling software to design and create models. Participants will then develop their understanding of structured data within CAD/CAM systems and the use of data transfer methods to transfer the data to the CAM system. The use of Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machines to produce various products will be covered.
The module will also explore the simulation of a Flexible Management System and production centres to create a real-time manufacturing environment.
