  • Description
  • Outcome
  • Certification
  • The demand for computer-controlled operators has increased in the manufacturing industry. CNC machine tools have replaced the older mechanical metal and plastic working machines to increase productivity, and therefore increasing the need for machine operators.

    This course "NSDC Course: Machining Technician - Lathe" presents you with the knowledge and skills necessary to become an efficient machine operator. The course caters for different learning needs by supplying the learner with both text and video based content.

    You will learn about Metrology, Metallurgy and Safety, Conventional Turning, CNC Turning, and soft skills. These modules will prepare you for using different functions of a lathe machine and teach you how to communicate and behave confidently in the work place.

    This course will test your knowledge on the content at different intervals to increase your learning before you complete a final graded assessment at the end of the course.

  • At the end of this course, you will be able to:
    - Explain measurement terms and systems.
    - Identify the parts of a lathe machine.
    - Convert values between the measurement systems.
    - Explain how to use different measuring instruments.
    - Identify and distinguish between 2D and 3D geometrical shapes.
    - Read engineering drawings of simple parts.
    - Develop part programs for simple components.
    - Produce parts or components in auto cycle.
    - Adjust the tool or offset data to correct the deviations in part dimensions.
    - Change the cutting tools or carbide insets after full wear.
    - State the basic properties of materials (hardness, ductility, toughness).
    - Perform different operations with the lathe machine.
    - Define the importance of CNC.
    - Become aware of safety and maintenance associated with a lathe machine.
    - Recognise how to behave accordingly in the work place.
