MFG* K118 - Computer Controlled Laser Materials Processing °


3 CREDIT HOURS
Prerequisites:TCN* K105 ; PHO* K101  or MEC* K262  or permission of instructor.
Corequisite: MFG* K119 .
A study of the mechanics, components, characteristics and control of lasers used in the processing of engineering materials. The differences between laser material processing and conventional methods will be examined. The interactions between laser beams and materials on atomic and macro scales will be discussed. Specific processes such as a thermal processing, surface hardening, and cladding, joining, cutting, marking and welding will be introduced. Students will be exposed to computer numerical control (CNC) concepts and programming.
