Methodology for Teaching the Material Removal Processes by Using CAD/CAM Software: Turning Processes
As is well-known, teaching of the computer-aided technologies is gaining more and more importance in the field of Manufacturing Processes Engineering. One such example is the growing tendency to employ computers in the simulation of material removal processes (CAM). In this study, a methodology proposed by the Manufacturing Processes Engineering Section in order to teach material removal processes is shown. This methodology is put into practice by employing one CAM software such as Surfcam® and is applied to the teaching subjects given by the previously-mentioned Section belonging to the Public University of Navarre. Due to the length of the practice manual developed for this purpose, which covers turning, milling and EDM processes, the present work has only been focused on the use of Surfcam® in the first case.
