The LHP 108 CAD/CAM/CNC/SIM Laboratory provides an extensive, hands-on educational environment designed to equip students with comprehensive knowledge and practical skills in modern CNC machining processes. By integrating CAD, CAM, and CNC systems, the laboratory ensures that students understand the full chain of machine processes, from design to production.

Key components include:

  • Educational Unicorn ML102 Machines: These versatile machines support both lathe and milling processes, enabling students to experience real-world machining tasks in a safe, controlled environment.
  • Comprehensive Didactic Materials: Step-by-step documentation and examples guide students through the entire process, from CAD design to CNC code generation and actual machining.
  • Hands-On Training: Students work with a variety of materials and learn critical processes such as turning, milling, drilling, and more, gaining valuable experience in 3-axis and 4-axis machining.

The LHP 108 laboratory’s holistic approach, combining theoretical learning with practical application, prepares students for the demands of modern automated production lines, fostering a deep understanding of CNC automation principles and machine control. This comprehensive training ensures that graduates are well-equipped to contribute effectively in advanced manufacturing environments.

The LHP 108 laboratory is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the complete chain of the machine process through automatic control applications. This laboratory combines theoretical and practical training in modern CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine processes, focusing on the integration of CAD (Computer Aided Design), CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing), and CNC systems. Students gain hands-on experience using the Educational Unicorn ML102 mill and lathe machines.

The LHP 108 laboratory course covers the entire training cycle from CAD to CAM to CNC. It includes:

  1. CAD Training: Students learn to use CAD applications to create 3D workpiece models.
  2. CAM Training: Students transform their CAD designs into CAM files and then into CNC code (G&M code).
  3. CNC Training: Students are trained in CNC system architecture, machine control, and tooling. They simulate their CNC programs and then execute them on real CNC machines to produce workpieces.

The training involves a step-by-step procedure where students work with various materials such as wax, teflon, acrylic, wood, copper, and other soft metals. The lab supports advanced CAD capabilities, process visualization, and simulation of up to 4-axis processes.

The Unicorn ML102 is a key component of the LHP 108 laboratory, aimed at training students in CAD/CAM/CNC design and automated production lines. The ML102 allows for both lathe and mill processes on the same equipment, offering flexibility in training.
