The vertical mill was used to mill out the steps in the body block.

The horizontal mill was used to make the body blocks the correct thickness.

All that is left is for the end of the stock to be knurled and cut in to 4 wheels.

Engineering Processes

Engineering Processes is a class designed to take the students through the manufacturing processes of creating a model aluminum cannon. I learned to operate the lathe, band saw, drill press, and vertical and horizontal mills. I worked with a partner so one of us could spin the barrel of the cannon on the lathe and the other could operate the Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) lathe. This class also taught me a variety of welding types and CNC plasma cutting. Manufacturing has always been an interest of mine and I look forward to expanding my knowledge this semester by taking Analysis of Manufacturing Processes.
