||This course will provide an overview of the design, operation and maintenance principles of basic mechanical system components. The terminology, theory, application and construction of mechanical components dealing with power transfer found within the typical factory will be discussed. The course is designed to provide an understanding of the basic physics principles that govern mechanical power transmission through the use of belt, chain and gear drives, clutch and braking mechanisms, coupling devices, linear actuators and bearings.
- Demonstrate safe working procedures.
- Demonstrate knowledge of terminology used in describing power transmission system components.
- Describe lubrication systems used in modern machinery and industry.
- Demonstrate a working knowledge for calculating common power, speed reduction and pressure formulas and equations.
- Identify a variety of power transmission clutch/brake components used in today's power systems.
- Interpret machinery prints, diagrams and schematics.
- Describe the principles used for selecting and utilizing belt, chain or gear power transmission systems.
- Demonstrate professionalism, dependability and good work habits.
- Identify the various power and mechanical systems used in the workplace.
