CIM Material Processes

 

HWMT BrochureYour students really need to know how things are made in industry, so below are some resources to help you get started with the learning process. My students became an “expert” in one particular field, picked a topic, and made a brochure about a specific manufacturing process. Part of their research was to find a great video that explains the process. The links to all of the videos, as well as some of their brochures as well.

All videos linked below are in order as they appear on the Brochure Topics Handout referenced above.

Prototyping

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM): is an additive manufacturing technology commonly used for modeling, prototyping, and production applications. It is one of the techniques used for 3D printing.

 .
 Selective Laser Sintering (SLS):  is an additive manufacturing (AM) technique that uses a laser as the power source to sinter powdered material (typically metal), aiming the laser automatically at points in space defined by a 3D model, binding the material together to create a solid structure.

 .
 Stereolithography (SL):  is a form of 3-D printing technology used for creating models, prototypes, patterns, and production parts in a layer by layer fashion using photopolymerization, a process by which light causes chains of molecules to link together, forming polymers.

.
 Laminated Object Manufacturing (LOM): is a rapid prototyping system. In it, layers of adhesive-coated paper, plastic, or metal laminates are successively glued together and cut to shape with a knife or laser cutter.

 Separating

.
CNC Milling is  the most common form of computer numerical control (CNC) machining, performs the functions of both drilling and turning machines. CNC mills are categorized according to their number of axis and are traditionally programmed using a set of codes that represent specific functions.

 .
 CNC Turning refers to the automated machining process of shaping material, such as metal, wood or plastic, using a computer numeric control (CNC) machine. Turning is usually done when making round parts.

 .
Waterjet Cutting:  is a form capable of cutting a wide variety of materials using a very high-pressure jet of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance.
 Brochure coming soon…

.
Laser Cutting  is a technology that uses a laser to cut materials, and is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, but is also starting to be used by schools, small businesses, and hobbyists. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics.

 Casting

 .
Drop Forging  is the process of heating metal and hammering it in to a special die (cast die) to produce a final product. Manufacturers use the drop forging process to produce hardware products which need to be strong and durable.

.
Die Casting  is a metal casting process that is characterized by forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mould cavity. The mould cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined into shape and work similarly to an injection mould during the process. Most die castings are made from non-ferrous metals, specifically zinc, copper, aluminium, magnesium, lead, pewter and tin-based alloys. Depending on the type of metal being cast, a hot- or cold-chamber machine is used.

.
Investment Casting is an industrial process based on lost-wax casting, one of the oldest known metal-forming techniques.[1] The term “lost-wax casting” can also refer to modern investment casting processes.Investment casting has been used in various forms for the last 5,000 years. In its earliest forms, beeswax was used to form patterns necessary for the casting process. Today, more advanced waxes, refractory materials and specialist alloys are typically used for making patterns. Investment casting is valued for its ability to produce components with accuracy, repeatability, versatility and integrity in a variety of metals and high-performance alloys.

Student Research Exemplars

Question:

There are a couple of research assignments that I would like my students to do. Do you have any exemplars of what you have used in class?

Answer:

reddownload 1.1 History of CIM Powerpoint Examples
reddownload 2.2 CIM Processes Brochure Examples  
reddownloadprocess-brochure-template
We sure do! Note that the exemplars that can be downloaded are older ones, and not all are necessarily considered the best of the best… That way your kids may not want to steal them from here! Included also are examples for History of CIM and Types of Processes.
We change it up, and some years we do on-line presentations, sometimes powerpoints, and sometimes brochures. Templates are included in the downloads! Below is an example of a brochure done by a former student.

2015-16 PDP #5: The CAD/CAM Process

on Wednesday, 18 November 2015.

THE 5TH INSTALLMENT OF AN ONGOING SERIES ON HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PLTW CIM CURICULUM

The fifth PDP session for the 2015-16 school year was held last night. In this one, Chris talks about the CAD/CAM Process. No matter what you use for CAD software, or CAM software the process is the same. This 27 minute segment takes you through the CAD-CAM process, and shows you how to make profiles, holes and pockets.

MANUFACTURING PROCESS RESEARCH PROJECT IS BORING! GOT A BETTER IDEA?

Question:

Having students write a paper or do a ppt project for manufacturing processes is boring! Do you have a better idea?

reddownloadDOWNLOAD: 2017-mfg-research-project

Solution:

Sure do! How about a manufacturing process brochure? This way students have to do a bit of research, (1 to 2 days) on given material, then post them for other students to see.  I post mine in a hand outs folder on the network.Also included in the activity is a list of topics to choose from.
Electroplate

The brochure is a Publisher template, or a Word template that you give them; after all, this is not about using publisher or software is it?!? Just be sure that students replace all the pictures and text in the template with their own. You’ld be surprised at the number of students who don’t!

 

On the second page of the handout is a rubric to use for scoring, and step three of the project is my favorite! Kids write a multiple choice quiz question, upon which they are evaluated, and then I take all of the electronically submitted questions, put it into a quiz; after editing of course, and then allow the kids to take the quiz “open brochure” style. This means they can look through all the students brochures to get the answers. This way they learn a little bit about ALL the processes, not just theirs!
