Abstract

Machining is an important manufacturing process that is used in wide range of applications. We acquired primary machine shop skills that provide us an opportunity to mill and drill a class of components to specified dimensions and tolerances. For each component, we created a detailed engineering working drawing that helps to shape and construct all the operations and procedures that must be undertaken, and controlled, to attain component machining without any breakdown or failure. Through hands-on machining, we discovered many different factors involved in milling, drilling, and the effects they exhibit on the tolerance and surface finish of a part.
