Introduction to Conventional Machining Technologies for Nuclear

This is a one-day course providing an overview of a selection of conventional & non-conventional machining technologies in the context of nuclear engineering.
Learning Outcomes
The key learning outcomes for the course are:
  • Awareness of the capabilities and limitations of traditional machining processes
  • Appreciate the implications for productivity and product quality
  • Understand the opportunities and restrictions for manufacturing in the nuclear sector
It will cover the following technologies:
  • Manual & CNC turning
  • Manual & CNC milling
  • Electro-discharge machining
  • Surface & cylindrical grinding
  • Water jet & laser flat-bed cutting
The course does include a two hour workshop demonstration and an opportunity for ‘hands-on’ learning.
Who should attend?
The course has been constructed for anyone working in manufacturing seeking to increase their awareness of modern machining methods and applications in the nuclear context. It is ideal for those starting their careers in machining,as well as experienced engineers, e.g. in design or productions, who would benefit from a practical insight into machining technologies.
Open course dates for this programme are set on an ad-hoc basis depending on demand. Currently no further open/public dates are planned for 2017, however, please register your interest here and we will be in touch if demand increases and we are able to put another course on.
