MTTN 102R : Blueprint Reading with GD&T

This course is intended as an introduction to understanding blueprints and being able to visualize and understand the intent of the designer or draftsman as presented in a blueprint. The first step in making quality parts or assemblies is interpreting the drawing correctly and applying the given information to the final product. This course will include a comprehensive guide to interpreting drawings commonly found in manufacturing beginning with the background of blueprints, looking at the types of lines used on a drawing, and how parts are shown in different views. Dimensioning and tolerances are explained with an emphasis on “Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing” (GD&T) using the “ASME Y14.5M-1994” standard.

MTTN 105R : Introduction to Inspection

This course is intended as an introduction to Inspection using mechanical measuring instruments. The student will gain the skill and knowledge to perform basic measurements and calculations. They will learn how to use precision measuring tools such as micrometers, calipers, dial indicators, and the steel rule. Students will become proficient at reading mechanical blueprints and will learn how to select the proper tool for measurement and for preparing quality control documents and inspection reports. Students will also learn the basics of related topics such as statistical sampling and quality control. Dimensioning and tolerances are explained with an emphasis on “Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing” (GD&T) using the “ASME Y14.5M-1994” standard.
