Procedure for Setting the Tool Length Offsets on a Vertical CNC Machining Center with a Fanuc O-M Control

Students view how the tool length offsets are set on the CNC Machine. They read a description of a method that uses a 2-inch gage block as a height reference.

Stain Measurement & Calculating Angles of Impact (Screencast)

In this learning object the student will learn how to measure a stain and calculate angles of impact. Determining the angle of impact for bloodstains takes advantage of the trigonometric functions (Sine function).

A mathematical relationship exists between the width and length of an elliptical bloodstain which allows for the calculation of the angle of the impact for the original spherical drop of blood.

Given well formed stains we can accurately measure the width and length by simply dividing the stain along it’s major and minor axis. The opposite halves would be generally equal to each other which aids in establishing the impact angle.

In this video, you’ll explore how to set up the chuck, face your part using a left-handed and right-handed tool, center drilling, and facing the part to length.

Students examine the four factors that affect resistance of a wire: temperature, length, diameter, and the type of material from which it is made. A short quiz completes the activity.
