Cutting Tool Essentials
An Interactive CD-ROM Instructional Unit

Produced by Precision Learning

“I'm impressed! This is a great learning tool for the beginner in tool grinding or Machines Trades Education.”—Jim Chambers, The Boeing Company

The increasing sophistication of machine trades equipment and production procedures demands highly specialized training. Yet, companies often lack the time and resources to provide detailed person-to-person instruction. This interactive training program will boost worker efficiency and reduce instruction costs.

Cutting Tools Essentials is organized into four modules:

All modules contain in-depth information, digital movies, 3-D animations, and other elaborative illustrations. Each module has a content menu that lets users immediately access any topic in the lesson. Simulations at various stages in the modules allow users to experiment with what they've learned without having to use actual tools and materials. All modules also feature engaging games that let users test—and improve—their skills and efficiency.

Seven additional CD-ROM units are planned: Drill Grinding; Endmill Grinding; Speeds and Feeds; Grinding Wheels; Measurement Methods; Specialty Tools; and Step Tools Interactive

CD-ROM and instructional handbook: Schol/web price $227.40
