Lean Manufacturing Mentor GuideProject DescriptionThis project was proposed as a kaizen project for Lean Manufacturing. Before its completion, there was noorganized introduction to mentoring for Lean Manufacturing. This was especially problematic for students that hadnever taken the class before mentoring it. To remedy this situation, a binder has been made that outlines the stepsof the block project that the students complete over the first two weeks of the class. The purpose of this project isto provide a forum for mentors to stay one day ahead of the students for machining the block as well as offermethods and tips for conducting the machining processes to help the mentor answer questions the students mayhave and make sure everything is done correctly.In its present state, this binder includes thorough manufacturing plans for making each part on the manual milland lathe. After each machine’s manufacturing plan is a section of notes regarding correct procedure for eachprocess required to make the block from. Notes for giving shop orientation on the manual mills and lathes are alsoincluded as a quick reference for mentors.As this is a kaizen project, it is not complete, but rather should be added to in the future. In order to encouragethis, the table of contents does not include page numbers for each section, but rather the sections are separatedby tabs. In fact, there are tabs for CNC Machining as well as welding even though in the present state nothing hasbeen included for either section. The authors of this project have limited to no experience in either section, so it issuggested that future work for this project includes someone with experience in these topics adding notes to thissection.

Lean Manufacturing Mentor GuideShop Orientation/SafetyThe first day of Lean Manufacturing is a shop orientation for the students. This is required for them to be shopcertified so that they can work in the shop under a mentor’s guidance. The shop orientation checklist can be foundon the Machine Shop website. As a mentor, it is advised to read through the document prior to giving an orientationso that you can be prepared to answer any questions and have a plan for what to talk about in each section. Includedbelow are notes to help with the manual lathe and mill:Manual LatheChanging jaws in 3-jaw chuckChanging to collet chuck on lathe #1Changing from 3-jaw to 4-jaw chuckUsing a live center.Use for long parts to prevent deflection (a part in the lathe is a cantilever beam)Tools and tool holders (Kept in drawers)Cuts are made from diameter NOT radiusSetting tool heightsWhich tools to useBoring bar, reamer, drill, countersink, etc.Carbide Vs. high speedCarbide is used for harder materials such as steel while high speed is used for softer materials such asaluminumChanging from high range to low rangeChange only when the machine is NOT runningSpeed control (Change ONLY when lathe is running).Reference charts to pick correct speedLead screw (engage only when lathe is NOT running).Speeds and feeds, power feeds (longitudinal and traverse)Z travel indicator

Start the lathe at low speed and increase the speed gradually. Get in the habit of removing the chuck key immediately after use. Some users recommend never removing yourhand from the chuck key when it is in the chuck. The chuck key can be a lethal projectile if the lathe is started withthe chuck key in the chuck. Keep your fingers clear of the rotating work and cutting tools. This sounds obvious, but don’t try breaking awaymetal spirals as they form at the cutting tool. You must consider the rotational speed of the workpiece and the movement of the tool relative to the workpiece.Basically, the softer the metal the faster the cutting. One of the great features of the lathe is that you can adjust the rotational speed without stopping to changegears. Most cutting operations will be done with the HI/LO gear in the LO range. Higher speeds, and particularlythe HI range, are used for operations such as polishing, and cutting aluminum and brass. To gain a good understanding of the lathe, you will need to know the names of the various components, asillustrated below. The carriage, in the circled area, consists of the apron, the vertical casting on which the carriagehand wheel is mounted, and the saddle (not shown), the H-shaped casting that rides on the ways to which theapron is attached.

Also known as the compoundfeed.Countersink1.To form a shallow, cone-shaped hole surrounding a smaller diameter drilled hole. Acountersink is often used so that the head of a flat-head screw will be flush with, or slightly below,the surface in which the screw is being used.2.A cutting tool, similar to a drill bit, with a cone-shaped tip, used to cut a countersink hole.Often combined with a short drill bit tip as a "combination drill and countersink", or center drill.Cross FeedtheA hand-wheel or crank that moves the cross-slide by turning a screw. Also the action ofmovingcross slide using the cross feed hand-wheel.Cross SlidePlatform that moves perpendicular to the lathe axis under control of the cross-slide hand-wheelCross-slideA wheel with a handle used to move the cross-slide in and out. Also known as the cross feed.HandwheelCutting ToolThe tool that does the cutting, or removal of metal or other material. May refer to any type ofcutting tool such as a drill, reamer or a lathe bit. A lathe bit typically has a square cross-sectionwith a sharpened tip on one end. It is made from very hard and heat-resistant material such asHigh Speed Steel or a form of carbide.

Lean Manufacturing Mentor GuideFaceplateA metal plate with a flat face that is mounted on the lathe spindle to hold irregularly shaped work.HandwheelA wheel turned by hand to move a component of a lathe or other machine tool. Often will have ahandle extending from the front face. The handle facilitates rapid turning of the hand-wheel.HeadstockThe main casting mounted on the left end of the bed, in which the spindle is mounted.

Has a tapered internal bore to accept a Morse Taper shank. The shaft, or ram, isadvanced or withdrawn by rotating the tailstock hand-wheel located on the right end of thetailstock. The ram can be locked in place at a specific point by a locking lever.ToolA cutting tool used to remove metal from a workpiece; usually made of High Speed Steel orcarbide.ToolpostA holding device mounted on the compound into which the cutting tool is clampedWaysPrecision ground surfaces along the top of the bed on which the saddle rides. The ways areprecisely aligned with the centerline of the lathe.

Lean Manufacturing Mentor GuideLathe Operations Operations that could be done on the LatheFacing - Turning - Drilling - Parting - Boring- Tapping & Threading FacingFacing is the process of removing metal from the end of a workpiece to produce a flat surface. Most often,the workpiece is cylindrical, but using a 4-jaw chuck you can face rectangular or odd-shaped workpiece toform cubes and other non-cylindrical shapes.To safely perform a facing operation the end of the workpiece must be positioned close to the jaws of thechuck because when a lathe cutting tool removes metal it applies considerable tangential (i.e. lateral orsideways) force to the workpiece.The workpiece should not extend more than 2-3 times its diameterfrom the chuck jaws unless a steady rest is used to support the freeend.Preparing for the Facing Cut Clamp the workpiece tightly in the 3-jaw chuck. To get the workproperly centered, close the jaws until they touch the surface ofthe workpiece then use a dial indicator to adjust center line ofthe workpiece, and then tighten the jaws. Choose a cutting tool with a slightly rounded tip. A tool with asharp pointed tip will cut little grooves across the face of theworkpiece and prevent you from getting a nice smooth surface.Clamp the cutting tool in the tool post and turn the toolpost sothat the tip of the cutting tool will meet the end of theworkpiece at a slight angle. It is important that the tip of thecutting tool be right at the centerline of the lathe; if it is too highor too low youwill be left with a little bump at the center of theface. Clamp the Toolpost in place and advance the carriage until the tool is about even with the end of theworkpiece. Make sure that the compound is not all the way at the end of its travel towards the chuck;about midway in its range of travel is good. Beginning the Facing Cut Use the compound hand-wheel to advance the tip of the tool until it just touches the end of theworkpiece. Use the cross feed crank to back off the tool until it is beyond the diameter of theworkpiece. Turn the lathe on and adjust the speed to the proper RPM. Now slowly advance the crossfeed hand-wheel to move the tool towards the workpiece. When the tool touches the workpiece it

Lean Manufacturing Mentor Guideshould start to remove metal from the end. Continue advancing the tool until it reaches the center ofthe workpiece and then crank the tool back in the opposite direction (towards you) until it is back pastthe edge of the workpiece. We started with the tool just touching the end of the workpiece; so we probably removed very littlemetal on this pass. This is a good idea until we get used to how aggressively you can remove metalwithout stalling the lathe. Also, since the end of the workpiece can be very uneven, we want to avoidgouging the tool into the end of the workpiece if it hits a high spot.The Roughing Cut With the tool just touching the end of the workpiece, move thedial indicator into position and lock at 0. Use the dial indicator tomonitor the length of the cuts. Tighten the carriage clamp toprevent the carriage from being pushed away from the end of partwhile facing.Cutting on the Return Pass If you crank the tool back towards you after it reaches the centerof the workpiece you will notice that it removes a small amountof material. You should move away from the part after the finish pass in order to maintain a smoothfinish.

Lean Manufacturing Mentor GuideThe Finishing Cut Depending on how rough the end of the workpiece was to begin withand how large the diameter is, you may need to make 3 or morepasses to get a nice smooth finish across the face. These initial passesare called roughing passes and remove a relatively large amount ofmetal. When you get the face pretty smooth you can make a final finishingcut to remove just .001 to .003" of metal and get a nice smoothsurface. The finishing cut can also be made at higher RPM to get asmoother finish. If the tip of your cutting tool is below the center line of the lathe, alittle nub is left at the center of the workpiece. The same thinghappens if the tool is too high but the nub will have more of a coneshape in that case. If the tool is too low, place a suitable thickness ofshim stock underneath the tool in the tool holder. If it's too high,grind the top down.Filing the Edge Facing operations leave a rather sharp edge on the end of the workpiece. It's a good idea to smooththis edge down with a file to give it a nice chamfer and to avoid cutting yourself on it. With the latherunning at fairly low speed, bring a smooth cut file up to the end of the workpiece at a 45 degree angleand apply a little pressure to the file.Wrong: left hand reaching over spinning chuck!Right - left hand holding tang end of fileThis is what a good facing cut should look like: smooth even surface with noraised bump in the center. Lay an accurate straight edge across the surface of theface and you should not be able to see any light under the edge. If you detect aslight convex shape, the carriage may be moving back away from the headstockduring the cut.

Lean Manufacturing Mentor GuideTurningTurning is the removal of metal from the outer diameter of a rotating cylindrical workpiece. Turning is usedto reduce the diameter of the workpiece, usually to a specified dimension, and to produce a smooth finishon the metal.Chucking the Workpiece We will be working with a piece of 6061 aluminum not too long. A workpiece such as this which isrelatively short compared to its diameter is stiff enough that we can safely turn it in the three jaw chuckwithout supporting the free end of the workpiece. For longer workpieces we would need to face and center drill the free end and use a dead or live centerin the tailstock to support it. Without such support, the force of the tool on the workpiece would causeit to bend away from the tool, producing a strangely shaped result. There is also the potential that thework could be forced to loosen in the chuck jaws and fly out as a dangerous projectile. Insert the workpiece in the 3-jaw chuck and tighten down thejaws until they just start to grip the workpiece. Rotate theworkpiece to ensure that it is seated evenly and to dislodge anychips or grit on the surface that might keep it from seatingevenly. You want the workpiece to be as parallel as possible withthe center line of t

Shop Orientation/Safety The first day of Lean Manufacturing is a shop orientation for the students. This is required for them to be shop certified so that they can work in the shop under a mentor’s guidance. The shop orientation checklist can be found on the Machine Shop website.
