Integrated 4C Program – Composites & Tooling Design

Welcome to a truly unique training experience with the Integrated 4C Program:

  • CAD – Computer Aided (Tooling) Design
  • CAM – Computer Aided Manufacturing
  • CNC – Computer Numerical Control (Machining of Master Pattern)
  • Composites – Rapid & Prototype Tooling and Part Fabrication

Description:

This course provides the applied knowledge & skills of essential technical communication required for engineers and technicians in a compact 10-day program. Core instruction provides a primary focus on delivering workflow and efficiency gains that will help optimize your composites operations.

Week 1 (5 Days):

CAD skills are enhanced using parametric sketching, 3D direct modelling, and technical drawing using Autodesk Fusion 360™ software. Trainees will then apply this knowledge to CNC machine their designed projects using an Axiom 4-Axis CNC machining center.

Week 2 (5 Days):

Trainees will use their newly formed mold from their CNC machining project, for creating a Master Pattern & Production Tooling Mold. The training course (and the process of I4C) is completed by the trainee’s fabrication of a Carbon Fiber Component using the production mold they have designed and milled.

Topics covered in this 10-day course include:

  • Interpretation of a composite part engineering drawing
  • Designing a component using both parametric and direct modelling techniques
  • Application of strategic 2D & 3D toolpath operations for CNC machining
  • Basics of CNC operation, including: G-code & M-code programming, workholding / fixturing, recommended tool selections, with speed & feed best practices
  • Materials and processes used in composite components and structures
  • Silicone & Urethane cast molding, and vacuum-assisted composite part fabrication
  • Essential knowledge of composite molds and parts fabrication

Prerequisites:
This course is suitable for persons with no prior knowledge of composite materials or tooling design and aims to provide the trainee with a solid foundation in CAD & CAM (through Autodesk Fusion 360™), CNC, and Composite Mold Making technologies.It is strongly recommended that trainees for I4C complete the online tutorial in using the Autodesk Fusion 360™ CAD program provided to registered trainees, prior to attending the course.
