TURNER TRADE INTRODUCTION During the two years duration a candidate is trained on subjects Professional Skill, Professional Knowledge, Engineering Drawing, Workshop Science & Calculation and Employability Skills related to job role. In addition to this a candidate is entrusted to make/do project work and Extra Curricular Activities to build up confidence. The practical skills are imparted in simple to complex manner & simultaneously theory subject is taught in the same fashion to apply cognitive knowledge while executing task. The practical part starts with basic fitting & turning and executes complex turning operation both in conventional lathe and CNC turn centre at the end of the course. The broad components covered under Professional Skill subject are as below: FIRST YEAR: The practical part starts with basic fitting & different turning including setting of different shaped job on different chucks. The different turning operations – Plain, Facing, Drilling, Boring (counter and stepped) Grooving, Parallel turning, stepped turning, Parting, Chamfering, U-cut, Reaming, Internal recess & Knurling. The skills on grinding of different cutting tools viz., V tool, side cutting, parting and thread cutting (both LH & RH) are also imparted. During this period the testing alignment of lathe by checking different parameters viz., axial slip of main spindle, true running of head stock, parallelism of main spindle and alignment of both the centres are also covered. The observation of all safety aspects is mandatory during execution any task. The safety aspects cover components like OSH&E, PPE, Fire extinguisher, First Aid and in addition 5S being taught. This section covers setting of different components (Form tool, Compound slide, Tail stock offset, taper turning attachment) & parameters (feed, speed, depth of cut) of lathe for taper/ angular turning of jobs. Different boring operations (plain, stepped and eccentric) are also undertaken to gain the skill in producing components involving such operations. Different thread cutting (BSW, Metric, Square, ACME, Buttress) by setting machining parameters are being taught in the practical. The use different accessories of lathe (Driving Plate, Steady rest, dog carrier and different centres) are also part of the practical training. During this period the basic maintenance and preventive maintenance of lathe and grinding machine are also covered. SECOND YEAR: On achieving above mentioned skill sets the candidate is engaged in producing different precision of engineering component with an appropriate accuracy (±0.02mm). The machining of different irregular shaped job using different lathe accessories and also producing different utility items viz., Crank Shaft (single throw), Stub arbor, etc. are covered to enhance their competency and perform the job as per practical requirement. The machining of different components along with assembly of such components (male & female) by performing different turning activities is also covered. The accuracy achieved is of an accuracy of ± 0.02 mm outside and ±0.05mm for inside turning. A dedicated time of 13 weeks devoted for CNC operations which involve setting both job and tools and operating the CNC turn centre to produce components as per drawing by preparing part programmes. The candidate gets enough training both on multi-media-based CNC simulated and on actual intermediate production based CNC machine. The candidate is also imparted training on process plan to produce components by performing special operation on lathe viz., worm shaft cutting and also producing different engineering components viz., drill chuck, collet chuck, screw jack, box nut etc., to develop competency in producing components which is tangible and significant in work and industry ready for executing such work as per demand. Professional Knowledge subject is simultaneously taught in the same fashion to apply cognitive knowledge while executing task. In addition, components like cutting tools and its specification, method of brazing and soldering, calculation involving gear ratio and gearing, and tool life, lubrication and functions, jigs and fixtures, interchangeability, quality control procedure and technical English are also covered under theory part. Total three projects need to be completed by the candidates in a group. In addition to above components the core skills components viz., Workshop calculation & science, Engineering drawing, employability skills are also covered. These core skills are essential skills which are necessary to perform the job in any given situation.
