The Machine Tools Lab is used to train students taking MTC-211, (manufacturing process) and MTC-342, (computer aided mfg.) classes.
The Machine Tools Lab allows students to get hands on experience with machining metal to manufacture parts. Students are able to see the process of a machined workpiece, from design to finished part.
The Machine Tools Lab consists of the following CNC machines:
- 4 - 3 axis Prototrak Milling Machine
- Uses rotary cutters to remove material from a workpiece on the x, y, and z axis
- 4 - 2 axis Prototrak Engine Lathes
- Rotates the workpiece against rigid cutting tools across the x and z axes
The 3 Axis Proto Trak milling machine is located in our Machine Tools Lab.
