Amatrol’s Manufacturing Processes training products cover a wide range of vital industrial topics from the very basics like fasteners and gaskets to advanced areas like product finishing and welding. All of these products feature real-world components for the best hands-on skill-building training available and world-class curricula packed full of knowledge necessary to understand the theory of why things are done instead of just explaining how to do them.
Manufacturing Processes products align with a variety of Amatrol programs like advanced manufacturing, construction technology, and CNC machine operator. This area also aligns with our Certified Production Technician program. This program features a competency-based instructional design that teaches the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council’s (MSSC) nationally recognized standards.
Fasteners Learning System (950-FNS1): covers a wide variety of fasteners commonly found in manufactured products and processes, including applicable knowledge of bolt types, sizes and grades, as well as screws, washers, locking nut devices, pins, and keys.
Gaskets Learning System (950-GSS1): teaches about selecting, installing, and storing the many types of gaskets available that are vital in manufactured products and processes where air or liquid are involved.
Print Reading 1 Learning System (950-PR1): covers industry-related skills including use of different reference coordinates, creating and editing drawings, using technical drawing views and dimensions, multi-view drawings, and developing schematic diagrams.
Contamination Learning System (950-CNS1): covers how to prevent contamination, as well as inspect / monitor for any unexpected problems through topics like the ISO cleanliness code, the importance of maintaining a clean facility and workstation, protective measures such as use of lubricants, how to detect contamination, and how to take corrective action should contamination occur.
CAD and CAM
Computer Aided Design 1 Learning System (96-CAD1B): introduces solid modeling by describing the function of solid modeling software and the features of solid modeling through topics like drawing planes, extrude cut features, fillets and chamfers, and revolved features. This learning system also offers an advanced expansion system, Computer Aided Design 2 (96-CAD2B).
Computer-Aided Manufacturing 1 Learning System (96-CAM1): covers the fundamentals of part design and development using Mastercam software. Mastercam allows learners to design and draw complex shapes and parts on a computer.
In addition to learning systems geared toward post-secondary and industrial customers, Amatrol also offers systems specifically designed for high schools. One of the biggest challenges facing the workforce today is a skilled worker shortage. Because of this, Amatrol is dedicated to providing high schools with learning solutions that will cover applicable STEM knowledge and advanced manufacturing topics and skills. High School learning systems within the manufacturing processes area include:
