SHM 208 - Industrial Metal Fabrication

Credits: 3
1 Lecture Hours 4 Lab Hours

Prerequisites: WLD 295 , WLD 296 , WLD 297  

This course introduces students to advanced fabrication techniques for ferrous and non-ferrous metals exceeding 0.0625 inches in thickness. Through hands-on lab work, students learn to lay out and fabricate industrial products, focusing on fit-up methods and the principles of industrial air and particle movement systems. 

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will: 

  1. Compute material requirements for round metal fabrications based on thickness and diameter specifications. 
  2. Produce shear lists for blowpipe systems using dimensional details from field sketches. 
  3. Articulate the fundamentals of particle collection systems. 
  4. Evaluate the use cases of baghouse filter systems in industrial applications. 
  5. Create rolling offsets by interpreting material properties and dimensional constraints. 
  6. Analyze design considerations essential for material conveying systems. 
  7. Show detailed rolling offsets for practical application. 
  8. Construct an industrial kitchen hood exhaust system. 
  9. Assemble components of a dust collection system. 
  10. Develop parts of a material conveying system.
  11. Make a fabricated shape with inside diameter (I.D.) and outside diameter (O.D.) requirements.
