Becuase of the locomotive nature of the part, the tolerances had to be within ± .002".

Projects

  • CNC Mill

Over the summer of 2017, I logged over 300 hours on the Tormach PCNC 770 mill. After training with the available stock in the MakerSpace, I began to machine parts for various research groups on campus. These custom parts varied significantly in complexity and required tolerance. Here are some of the more comprehensive projects that I worked on with a description of their process and purpose.

Jason approached me with the engineering plans for an apparatus to assist in his bio-medical research. I took the fusion models that he created, and machined the four "slider" parts and then the stamp base using the Tormach PCNC 770. Becuase of the locomotive nature of the part, the tolerances had to be within ± .002". Each of the stamps required machining on both the top and bottom surface and so were flipped in the vice halfway through the operation. This was excellent experience in standardizing my measurement procedure and performing the operation so that the two cuts met each other smoothly.

The stamp base required the use of a T-slotter to route the hole for the sliders. I did research online to determine the feeds and speeds of the new tool and played around with the CAM extensively to ensure a smooth cut. Additionally, this part required machining on the top and bottom.
