CNC403: Tormach II - 4th Axis and Tool Changes SBU

In this SBU class, students who have taken the basic Tormach class will learn and gain access to advanced features of the machine and the software as well as the 4th-axis attachment. You will learn how to set up a tool index of multiple tools, increasing your efficiency of machining parts using multiple tools and parts. You will also learn how to set up and manually work the 4th-axis rotary table, opening up the world of 4th-axis machining and workholding solutions.

The 4th-axis attachment allows you to machine on a rotating cylinder, held in the horizontal or vertical position.

Setting up the tool index allows you to change tools quickly, without having to zero your Z.

Prerequisites: Successful completion of CNC301: CNC Tormach Milling Machine SBU prior to taking this class

Safety: Closed-toe shoes are required.

Once you take and successfully pass this class, you can use this equipment for your projects whenever you work at TechShop as a member!

CNC401: CNC Waterjet Cutter SBU

In this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class, learn to safely operate the waterjet cutter, one of the most powerful tools at TechShop.

Precisely cut almost any flat material with a very thin, high pressure stream of water and abrasive garnet. Work with everything from the thinnest sheet metal to 8 inches of granite, as well as wood, glass, tile, marble, and more. This extremely versatile, easy-to-program, and low-waste machine works without the risk of heat damage. The large bed accommodates full sheets of material.

Class time is split between learning the FlowPath software and using the waterjet.

Note: When using the FlowJet, a consumables fee will be charged, only for cutting time, not setup time. The waterjet cuts quickly and cost estimate strategies will be covered.

Project: Gear-shaped bottle opener

Prerequisites
  • Required: Understanding of vector-based graphics

  • Recommended: CAD to CAM experience
Equipment access: Waterjet cutter

Safety
  • Required: Wear closed-toe shoes, remove dangling jewelry, and tie back long hair

  • Advisable: Hearing protection


Once you take and successfully pass this class, you can use this equipment for your projects whenever you work at TechShop as a member!
