Fofana, Mustapha S.


Machining is an essential process in the manufacturing of almost any modern equipment, and for this reason it is a critical skill for practicing engineers. In order to demonstrate our understanding and mastery of this important skill, we designed our MQP project with the intended objectives of understanding, interpreting and performing process machining. The MQP Team under the guidance of the advisor created commercially quality components based on actual industrial needs of a local manufacturing company. We utilized Computer Aided Design/Manufacturing software to develop manufacturing and process CNC strategies that were used to create the components in WPI Higgins Laboratory. Both manual and numerically controlled machine-tools were used to attain the machining objectives.
