Overview of MACHINE TOOL DESIGN Engineering

An integrated study of machining/fabrication practices with machine tool design which comprises the analysis, planning, design, construction and application of tools, methods, and procedures necessary to increase manufacturing productivity.


As a result of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Implement the tool design process when designing tooling for the manufacturing of a product.
  2. Apply Geometric Tolerancing principles in the designs of tooling.
  3. Evaluate and select appropriate materials for tooling applications.
  4. Design, develop, and evaluate cutting tools and work holders for a manufactured product.
  5. Design, develop, and evaluate appropriate gaging/gaging systems to define limits and specifications of a workpiece during the manufacturing process.
  6. Design, develop, and evaluate tooling for various joining processes.
  7. Apply ANSI standards to tool design drawings and layouts.
  8. Use CAD and conventional techniques in creating tooling drawings.
