Course description: This course reviews the theory and practice of layout of sheet metal fabrication. The student will learn the process of fabricating, and welding of sheet metal through a series of competency-based projects.
Course objectives: This course covers the theory and practice of sheet metal layout. Students will learn the process of fabricating sheet metal assemblies through a series of competency-based projects. These projects will be done on paper and/or sheet metal using instruction and practical information.
Lecture: Students will review methodology of reproducing fabricated sheet metal components from a blueprint or drawing. Methods of measuring, inspecting, geometry, tolerance requirements, and final finish of the assemblies.
Lab: Student will demonstrate the safe use of shop equipment and hand tools.
Set-up, perform and use equipment. Demonstrate the correct procedure of measuring and the use of layout tools. Demonstrate the procedures for fabricating sheet metal products. Identify and list the various types of materials that apply. Identify variations in sheet metal gages and thicknesses, and fabricate templates.
