Safety Department (Includes Thirteen Classes)
In any workplace, employees must understand essential safety practices in order
to help avoid potential hazards.
Although every workplace is unique, there are common safety topics that apply
to a wide range of industries and occupations.
These classes provide an overview of the major safety topics relevant to
manufacturing companies. They also identify OSHA requirements that may affect
the employer or employee.
While other Tooling University departments may contain safety classes specific
to a particular process, these classes provide a general foundation of safety
information that is relevant for every individual in the workplace.
shaft with a torch before machining it with high-speed steel. (See example
The case hardened surface of Thomson® shaft is hard (about 60 RC) and will
quickly ruin high-speed steel cutters. If you heat up an area of the shaft to a
dull red and let it cool slowly, that area of the shaft will cut easily with a
standard cutter. This technique works great for machining set screw flats which
are features commonly used on this type of shaft.

Machinist Calculator (MC-20)
MC-20 Machinist Calculator is
a compact, hand-held device programmed with built-in formulas making it easy
and quick for machinists to establish speeds, feeds, and time without the
guesswork or clumsy conversion charts.
Pressing any one of the five Function keys — Revolutions Per Minute (RPM),
Surface Feet Per Minute (SFM), Inches Per Minute (IPM), Feed Per Tooth (FPT),
or Cut Time (CT) — activates a built-in prompter that takes the user through a
Machinist Calculator comes
